The Right Ski

The right ski can be the difference between a great day on the snow and a very uncomfortable experience.  Many people believe the more expensive a ski; the more fun it will be. In some cases, this can be true. However, in most cases this is pure fiction. Most skiers do not need the most expensive ski; but rather a ski that has been designed to ski like the skier.  A skier new to skiing would most likely have a terrible experience if they are put on a ski that is too aggressive for them, and an expert skier would likely not have as much fun if they are on a ski not aggressive enough for them.  Also, there is no such thing as a ski that will perfectly handle every type of skiing.

Every ski has its trade offs based on its shape, width, and internal construction.
