    Searching for a pair of xc skis for a friend (so she can come skiing with me without needing to hire!!). Hoping for some hand me downs that a teenager has grown out of (size 35 boots, and not particularly tall!)

    Looking for
    3 pin or cable bindings (short bindings, she has ridiculously small feet size 35)
    Metal edge or half metal edge
    pattern base
    170 cm max
    something like Madshus Glittertind or Eon would be ideal

    Ray's ski hire in Myrtleford have/had a pair of Madshus EON's on sale for specially marked down prices. The skis may not match your friend's body weight. They are without bindings. Doug at EMC will have the bindings you want.

    Those Eons weren’t exactly priced to clear...

    I think they were 300 clams which is not bad even without bindings.

    You can have my old Voile Mountaineer bindings if you find a suitable cheap ski, $30- posted You will need to find screws tho as I have lost them. If you want them you can have the wedges and heel climbing wires or the riser plates for another $20- to cover the extra postage

    Rocky Valley ski hire in Tawonga South was advertising old rental stock a few weeks back. Think mainly classic but it wouldn't hurt to call.
