What Ski Equipment Do I Need?
The type of ski equipment you use can make a big difference to your performance on the slopes, so it’s important to get it right.
You need to think about your ability level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and the type of skiing you’re after (on-piste, off-trail, racing) to find the right fit for you.
