Junior backcountry skiers have been flying under the radar of product developers; it’s been hard to get properly sized equipment. When covering junior skis with climbing skins, parents would inevitably throw half of the material in a standard kit in the garbage. Thankfully, product developers at Contour saw this issue unfold and decided it was time for a kit with less material and associated price. The Kids skin is aimed at junior skiers on planks up to 95mm wide and 140cm long. The skin material is a nice mohair-mix and comes in a streamlined package for kids. Just cut to length and trim the sidecut, no other installation or hardware is required. Thanks to Contour, getting a set of skins for your grom is now as easy as learning to pizza and French-fry.

  • Hybrid glue is less sticky than adult skins, helping smaller arms to rip their own skins.
  • No tail-strap means less weight/volume, easier fitting, and a chance to teach your kids skin-glue management.
  • Ample 95mm width and 125cm length out of the box will cover most kids' skis.
  • Metal tip-bracket is durable and securely riveted in place.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Sophie
Will these fit skis 148 legnth and 90 width?
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Sophie,

This would work, but would probably be a little short. You might be better off doing a skin build using some Ski Trab Mix per cm and adding a tip attachment of your choosing. In terms of length, it's personal preference - full coverage is maximum grip, and less coverage offers more glide. You can buy ~148cm to start and trim as you please, just round the tails off.

Question from Silas
Will these fit on a 99cm ski? I'm hoping to use them on a pair of blade skis.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Silas, these will fit on a 99cm ski, you'll just need to trim them down. The width is 95mm, so if your blades are less than 100mm underfoot, they'll work. Please note these do not come with tail clips, but you could purchase some separately.

Another option would be to build a skin from something off-the-roll in the precise length you need, and get tip / tail clips to match.

Question from Patrick Chase
What adhesive do these use? Is this a reduced-tack traditional glue, or is it Contour's hybrid adhesive?

I would guess based on the lack of tail clip that it's the former?
Answer from jbo
Hi Patrick, both! It is the hybrid adhesive, which is a reduced-tack, two-layer glue.

Question from Tiffany
I am very short. I have 146cm (length) skis with tips (125 mm wide). I have talked with multiple support reps on multiple sites but cannot find anything in my size.
These would be 21 cm shorter than my ski length. Would that work?
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Tiffany, they might be a little skinny for your skis, but the overall dimensions aren't too off for a skin with less plush coverage.

You might be better off building a custom skin from off-the-roll skin material. We can attach tips and tails here, but you might need to trim the edges yourself. Feel free to email us at or give us a call and we can help you out!

Hey Guys.
I bought these to go with 2022 172 Atomic Backland 100's and Marker Alpinist 8's. I'm 180cm tall and 82kg.
As it turns out, the 95 mm width is perfect for the 100 underfoot, the edges just exposed, but the base covered.
As the shovel and tail widen, more base is exposed and I reckon the front tip slipping I had when I went steeper side hill on the wet Aussie spring snow was the reason. Shallower zig-zags were not a problem and I reckon with fresher snow, the steeper side hill would be easy. I felt no issues with the fact that the last 50 or so cm of my tails had no skin! No tail clips also presented zero issues.....two half days of peeling off at the back or elsewhere, but heaps of grip for all that I climbed. A video of Hoji (Dynafit and 4 Front) recently saying full skins offer so much grip, that he's working on shorter skin systems to reduce touring weight, seems consistent with my use of these "kids" skins! 190g for each skin. Folded up glue to glue super compact.....way smaller than the G3 Alpinist full lengths that I tried with some hire DPS 100 Wailers the week before. Used a plastic scraper to squeegee water from skins before removing from the base.

Question from Wes M
Are people doing ok with out tail clips? I was caught off guard by that
Answer from jbo
Hi Wes, tail clips are a somewhat recent invention and not strictly necessary. Many of us here often forego them. Kids are not likely to do many laps; the glue should hold just fine for their outings. With that in mind, Contour chose to keep the cost down and leave them off.

Question from DAVID PTOLEMY
Do these fit 140cm length skis. It says they do but it also says 125cm out of the box. Not sure what that means and if the 125cm length adapts to 140cm length skis?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi David,

These skins will be 125cm out of the box. However, an additional 15cm of exposed base at the very tail of the ski will not significantly affect grip, hence the range of sizes.
