I have to admit, I am a little intimidated about this question on the ski wall because I see the athlete size, strength and demeanor and wonder what the coach is seeing that I don't see. Some of these kids look tiny, but the coach may see strength and power.
That being said, if the family can only afford one ski at this age, which one do you get?

Not much of a question in my view. You can do GS on SL skis, but you cannot do SL on GS skis.

Also, all the drills will be a lot easier to do on SL skis.

I heard that a SL with a 10-13 meter radius is great for GS. Most kids can easily ski GS with a SL that has a higher radius.
