We carry beginner snow skis through to advanced snow skis and categories from on-piste, all-mountain to freeride or park.
The best way to choose a new pair of snow skis is to categorise your skiing into on-piste, all-mountain or freestyle.
On-piste snow skiing is best defined as skiing marked runs or trails without leaving resort boundaries. This is a popular choice in Australia as our back country terrain is somewhat limited compared to resorts overseas. On-piste or carve snow skis have narrow waste widths for fast edge transitions and feature strong edge hold on hard packed or icy snow conditions.
All-Mountain snow skis are best for skiers that enjoy skiing a wide range of terrain from groomed runs, to moguls, tree skiing and everything in between. All-mountain snow skis feature a wider waste width compared to carve skis ranging from 80mm to 100mm. This wider platform allows the ski to float in softer snow conditions ultimately making them a great choice to take overseas too. Our favourite all-mountain snow skis include the Rossignol Experience, Salomon QST, Atomic Vantage, Atomic Cloud, Atomic Vantage, K2 Poacher, Line Sick Day and Faction Candide Thovex. For those who plan to ski overseas in Japan or North America, check out anything with a waste width of 100mm or more such as the Rossignol Sky 7 HD’s or the Rossignol Soul 7 HD’s.
Freestyle, park or twin-tipped snow skis are suited to those who plan on spending time in terrain parks hitting jumps, rails or jibbing the mountain. Park skis generally feature a twin outline, meaning the tips and tails are mirrored. Having a raised tail means the ski can be ridden backwards as well as it can be ridden forwards. Our favourite freestyle snow skis include the Line Tom Wallisch, Line Chronic, K2 Sight, Salomon NFX, Salomon TNT, Atomic Punx, K2 Misconduct and K2 Empress.
Choosing a size of snow ski depends on your height, weight, ability level and the category of ski you would like to choose. All-mountain skis feature rocker in the tips meaning the ski will feel shorter due to the effective edge being reduced. Likewise, twin-tipped or freestyle snow skis are likely to have their binding mounted in the centre of the ski, meaning the ski will also feel shorter than it actually is. Feel free to ask our experienced staff any questions you have relating to snow ski brands, categories or sizing.
