January 26, 2007, Newsletter Issue #129: Shaped Skis

Tip of the Week

The ski with the most shape is not necessarily the right one for you. A ski with too narrow a waist will not track well on straight, flat runs. Its tendency is to ride on its edge. A wide tail will inhibit a beginner (who typically rides a flat ski) from finishing a turn. Determining the right amout of shape for your ski involves many factors, so check with the ski pro at your local mountain, or a shop employee near your home.
