SkisU12 Home - one pair of skis (Ski companies make a ski that is a GS with a slalom sidecut that can be leased) measuring to the top of the head area.  These can be used for Slalom and GS when you buy or lease one pair of skis for the year.  If you choose to have 2 pair, for slalom measuring in the forehead area and for GS, they should measure at the top of the head or an inch higher than their head.  When we have our speed training and racing weekend, you can lease a pair of skis for the week.  It is not necessary to buy Super G skis.
