As far as Hoks, yeah I’ve thought of those but we’d need a good boot system. I think I’ll just let them try xc with some kids size nnn equipment and traditional skis. If they take to it then we’ll look at something more specialized for bc.

They seem excited about going to “ski school” next year (for alpine skiing)- would have done that this year if not for COVID-19.
Not sure if you're on FB or not, but there seems to be a lot of kids xc set ups on Marketplace right now.

Now if I could only find a damn pair of 3 pin boots that will fit me!
