New Gear for Jake - K2 Juvy's

Jake is now officially a "tween". Almost 11. 4'10". 90 lbs. Size 8.5 feet.

He is at the very end of "kids" ski gear. Most skis only go up to a 140 and most boots only go up to around a 25.0-25.5. I found him a nice set of Nordica Superchargers in a 26.5 which is an almost unheard of youth size and yesterday while returning Jarrett's season rentals from last year, spotted a brand new set of K2 Juvy's in a 149 for $219.00 at Ski Pro.

Jackson is skiing a set of Salomon 1080 Thrusters in a 150 (adult ski) and now Jake is in a 149. Jarrett just graduated to the big kid's school of skiing and gets to move up to Jake's old K2 Escape 125's or maybe the Salomon 1080 Fish 130's Jake was using last year.

But the best part was Lindsey was with me and grabbing skis off of the kids shelf. The skis for Girls rock. I am so stoked to go ski shopping with her in another couple of years. They have some seriously cool stuff. But for now, Jake's Juvy's rock pretty hard.

Ski looks cool for sure! Have you seen the Rocker??? It's HUGEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Check out - there's a pic showing some skiers at St. Mary's Glacier about a week ago!

Snow has fallen again and the season starts real soon :-)!
