If you want to keep up with your little shredder, you’re going to need a good pair of skis. The Flair is a new ski in the women’s line, aimed at advanced to expert skiers. It’s a mid-fat ski with all-mountain potential. So, whether you are hiking the ridge with friends, or playing around on Powder Park with your kids, the long tips and its shorter effective edge makes for easy turn-initiation. The Flair is really stable at high speeds, should you need to take off after that kid bombing down the fall line without making a single turn. Screw on the Marker Freeski 100 bindings and you have a great set-up. They keep your boot on the board and make it easy to control the ski. What more could you ask for in a binding? And it doesn’t hurt that the Flairs are pretty to look at—even mom should get something nice once in a while. $729; Movementskis.ch.
