How to choose your skis

The Skis Guide:
  • The type of skis, its flexibility and its dimensions (the waist width, shovel and tail) depend on your level of expertise. There are six skier levels (A - F). We will be able to assess your level based on your performance in the lessons and the types of slopes you’ll go down..

  • The hardness and type of snow influences the type of skis you will choose (slalom, giant, all-round, cross, free-ride, freestyle).
  • The height of the skis depends on the type of ski: the slalom ski is shorter than your height, the giant ski is longer, the cross ski is your same height or longer, freeride is longer, and all-round shorter ... all these factors depend on the level of each skier.
