Skiing Tips

Skiing Powder

  • Keep your weight evenly distributed over the centre of both skis by leaning slightly forward into your boots and placing your hips directly above the centre of your boots.

Waxing Your Skis

  • Many variables might affect your choice of wax if you are a competitive skier. There are different waxes for different types of skiing (for example, alpine, nordic or snowboarding). You might also want to vary your wax depending on the combination of skiing conditions (temperature, snow conditions, humidity, etc.).
