While discussing ropes and such another AWSA Official (and parent) suggested that the B2/G2 division is one of significant range in skiers size/weight. They feel that this age range is one that spans pre and post adolescence. Thus, the skiers are not really appropriately grouped. Please see the current divisions and the proposed divisions below and vote and comment.
Why change? Basically, the thought is that 9, 10, & 11 year old's are a pretty constant size within that age range, while 12, 13, & 14 year old's are all bigger but also basically constant in size. The outer divisions each trim a year to allow for the meaningful split of the middle division.
-- The future of skiing depends upon welcoming novice skiers regardless of age to our sport.
