To choose a pair of skis, it is of capital importance to first determine two things: one’s skiing level and the type of skiing one aspires to. Determining skiing ability guarantees that the ski equipment will give you the greatest pleasure on the slopes..
4 skiing levels:
5 skiing styles:
The skis’ construction characteristics will let you choose your skis from among parabolic skis, freeride or freestyle : a wide ski tip will be a plus for turning, a short tip means fewer vibrations and a long tip will make it easier to get out of deep snow.
A narrow waist will allow a quicker edge-to-edge transition while a wider waist will give better contact on the snow.
A large tail is synonymous with stability: a narrower tail will allow slipping and a raised tail will mean that the dare-devils can make backwards jumps.
For skis that are manageable, the following is recommended: 4 to 6 inches less than the skier’s height for small turns and less fatigue at the end of the day.
For a more stable ski and carving wider turns, choose skis that are the same as the skier’s height. And finally, for skis with greater contact on deep, hard snow, go for a ski that is 2 to 6 inches taller than the skier. In all events, bindings will be adjusted to the skier’s level. For a beginner, bindings will be loose so the skier can easily step out of the bindings in case of a fall.
