A Quick Guide to Shopping Skis
Choosing the right ski for the job can be the difference between just getting down the hill and slaying your runs like you’re being filmed from a helicopter. After choosing the right length, pick a shape that matches the snow, the terrain, and your riding style. If you're putting in four turns down a three thousand foot Alaska face, you'll want to choose a very long turn radius and a rockered camber profile to keep them on top of the snow. If you're making quick turns down groomed hardpack on the East Coast, you'll want exactly the opposite. What’s right for you requires some research and thought, so dig in and find the skis to get you there.
