One of the favorite junior skis that is coming over for 2012 is the Line SFB Jr. Ski. With a 107mm waist the Bacon Shorty will float in the deepest of snow while dad wins too because now your young ripper can go skiing the same places as you with just as much ease. The ski does have Early Rise and Early Taper so you can easily ski all conditions from deep snow to groomers with ease. If you are looking to save some money then you can also look for last years Line EP Shorty as it is the same ski with different graphics. It is awesome how companies have stepped up to make skis for the youth who can now be free with out limits because of their equipment.
