Types of Skis

 

In skiing, just like in sailing, there are many trends to join. As it happens with fashion, we can choose between profiles. We can dress with any clothes we may find or sail with any kind of boat we desire. But we won’t be seen the same way and we won’t navigate through the water the same way either.

The variety of profiles in which skis have been divided nowadays has become a bit of a rough sea. On the positive side we find out that today’s skis are great. They are really good. In their own field, some skis can really shine in an unprecedented way. The toll for this magnificence is choosing between those completely different profiles. The more variety we have the more doubts we may find when choosing. That’s the way it is. So this is the reason behind this “all types of skis” guide.

Next, you will find a short list of the main profiles with a short explanation of each one. The description may not be precisely equal to what you may find in other media but you will find that, in general, the main characteristics are similar or equal.

Albert Valbuena - English (84 Posts)

My name is Albert and I am from Barcelona. I started skiing when I was 10. At the age of 32 I started this project called Ski Reviewer after having been professionally involved into the skiing world since 1999. I started from the bottom but after several years of dedication and hard training I achieved the official Ski Instructor Certification (ISIA certified) in 2006 at ETEVA. From then on I spent several seasons as an instructor as well as a kid's trainer in the local club. I was also a member at the core team in the ski resort for racing and events management. That period ended on 2011 and now on 2014 I've started Ski Reviewer.
