NNN bindings to give away

Hi All,

I have a set of Rossignol NNN bindings (and 4 mounting screws) looking for a good home. Suitable for a younger skier – I do not have the two square heel plates.

I took a photo that I can send on.


need your suggestions and insights please

I just enrolled our 5 year old son for the bunny class for this coming December and have a few questions about gears; I wonder if any one can advice?
My boy is 120 cm in height and 26 kg (quite big for his age) and is active. We do not have any ski equipment for him. Here are my questions:
1. Should we rent his equipment from Cypress given that he may well outgrow the equipment by next year? Or should we buy a new set for him (from Deep Cove) and resell them once he outgrows them?

2. Is the suitable ski length for him still between 100 and 120 cm based on the guideline I read at this website?

3. Is there anybody who may have kid ski that may fit his needs? He shoe size is 1.5 based on my measurement just the other day but I am not sure if I used the correct table.

Any insight or suggestions you may have to share would be much appreciated. Thank you.

p.s. I am an experienced XC skier but not an experienced parent.
