October 13, 2006, Newsletter Issue #116: Parabolic Skis - A Beginner's Dream Come True

Tip of the Week

Technology has allowed many things in our society to shave down their learning curve. From computers to flight simulators, many things are far easier to master these days. Skiing has traditionally had a fairly steep learning curve. However, since parabolic skis came around, beginning skiers have had the ability to take advantage of technology to advance their education. With the advent of snowboarding, ski manufacturers took notice of the easier learning curve.

Sharing in the technology of the snowboard, parabolic skis were developed with a shape that makes a ski resemble a snowboard. With fatter ends and a narrower middle, a beginning skier can get a much better feel for the balance that is necessary to stay on their feet with parabolic skis. Skinnier, traditional skis were very hard to learn on for most. With parabolic skis, this training can be much easier.

If you have a beginning skier that is having trouble getting the hang of skinny, straight skis, check into getting a pair of parabolic skis. You may find that your beginner is advancing faster than you ever would have thought with straight skis.
