Great News: the equipment rules have only changed for the better this year! Our FIS men will benefit from the much nicer 30 Meter GS skis, and our U16s will benefit from LOTS of 195/30 Meter skis becoming available as SG skis for super reasonable prices. And the best news of all for U16 is that we have some of the 195/35s available in the Speed Pool for your use! 2nd year U16 and FIS guys should try both 188 and 193 lengths of the 30 Meter skis (if possible) this Summer. The 188s will be softer, while the 193s will offer more sidecut, stiffness, and stability. Check out the full ski length guide here.
