Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

 Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person

My son is keen to try telemark. Casts envious glances at the free heelers at C.F. But struggling to find boots. He is mondo 22/23.

Any advice greatly appreciated

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I've emailed to see what the available range is (the last time I checked, the smallest size at CFe was a UK5/mp24 and the shortest ski was 150cm). There may be more available from the club at the Festival. I'll let you know when I hear back.

My experience when I was looking for junior boots a few years back with no smaller sizes available locally to just try out I bought a second hand pair from someone in the USA - this worked out ok and luckily they fitted (I passed them on when outgrown).
If you consider this I suggest the usual places to keep an eye on - maybe an advert on snowheads, check eBay - both in the UK ( and USA (.com) if postage to the UK is an option, the winterhighland site
If your son is 'junior sized' it is worth looking for models like the Scott/Garmont G-Rex (previous models were called teledactyls and telesaurus).
