Beginner, intermediate, expert...pick the right skis to progress at your own pace.
Choose short, narrow skis until you're familiar with the basic motions and can turn on blue and green runs. Shorter skis are easy to handle, offer excellent grip, and allow you to react faster. Choose fairly flexible bindings to make it easier to remove your skis.
Already comfortable making turns and improving quickly on the slopes? To increase your speed and progress, go for a slightly wider, more rigid ski that offers greater control while carving. As your skill level increases, so should the rigidity of your skis.
For those who know how to carve - i.e. take super sharp turns while leaning over as far as possible - a high-performance ski is a must. Carving skis have a parabolic shape that is ideal for making turns without losing speed. Get ready for the ride of your life!
