How to choose your ski pack?

Complete guide for snow sports enthusiasts

Welcome to our blog dedicated to intrepid skiers! If you are passionate about freeride, ski touring or freestyle, you are in the right place. Choosing the right ski pack is crucial for an optimal experience on the slopes and off the beaten track. In this article, we will guide you step by step to help you make an informed decision, whether you are a novice or an expert.

Understand their needs

The first step to choosing the ideal ski pack is to understand your specific needs. If you are a freeride enthusiast, you are probably looking for sturdy skis, offering excellent stability in powder. Hiking enthusiasts will prefer lightness and versatility, while freestyle enthusiasts will be looking for maneuverable and responsive skis.

Know your level of proficiency

Your skill level plays a crucial role in choosing the right ski pack. Beginners may prefer more tolerant skis, offering increased stability, while experienced skiers may prefer more technical models to push their limits.

Freeride - choose your ski

Consider the type of land

Whether you’re freeriding down the steep slopes or hiking downhill in a variety of terrain, the type of terrain you explore influences the choice of your ski pack. Wide and floating skis are ideal for powder, while narrower skis will offer better handling on ice or groomed slopes.

Thinking about bindings and shoes

The choice of bindings and boots is often overlooked, but it is crucial to optimize your skiing experience. Make sure your bindings are compatible with your shoes and meet your specific performance and comfort needs.

In short, choosing the right ski pack is a personalized decision that depends on your preferences, your skill level and the terrain you plan to conquer.
