But this means that making a choice on which skis you want while you are sitting in front of your computer. Now if you are going to do this traditionally, all the decisions are made when visiting the ski shop and also, with the help of staffs.
Not all ski staffs of course are accommodating and helpful and everyone should have at least basics of the different skis and on how to choose skis that are perfectly suited to their style. Most of the times, stores are offering 3 to 4 different categories of skis and with this, you are left with the question on which to choose.
A basic difference in the ski rentals is how fast you expect to ski with them and at the same time, where you plan to use it. In relation to the categories, there are actually several things that you have to be mindful about and these are what we will talk about in the next paragraphs.
Beginner ski – this is both flexible and quite forgiving as it’s designed with slow speed turns and adequate number of short radius too. This makes it simpler and faster for beginners to learn the basics, hence the name.
Intermediate ski – made for high speeds while offering longer radius turns. Such ski is stiffer to be able to give skiers stability they need even at high speeds.
Advanced ski – as what the name suggests, it’s designed for professionals and also, for hitting the parallel carving turns but, this is divided to the terrain you will ski on.
Speaking of terrains, there are different categories of it that you must be mindful about similar to on-piste race skis, off-piste skis, freestyle skis and all mountain skis. As you read further, you are going to discover the difference of each terrain to the next.
Number 1. On-piste race skis – this is intended for making perfect carving turns, bites hard to piste and also, very responsive.
Number 2. Off-piste skis – if you see the terrain to be wide and long or fat in ski terminologies, they make it possible for skiers to ride through deep snow without sinking.
Number 3. Freestyle skis – designed mainly for snowpark, shortish in length along with twin tips which allows for easy backward skiing, which is meant to impress the crowds watching in the park.
Number 4. All mountain skis – this one consists of on and off piste performance and at the same time, carved on piste but, it is fat to explore the off-piste too.
