Contrary to what many students (especially of medium technical level) think, ie, that it is better to have top of the range skis and boots to improve its own performance on the snow, the Italian Ski School dispenses some advice.

The advice is to buy or rent, perhaps with the direct support of a ski instructor, tools that are as much as possible in line with the actual technical level of the skier. It is often believed, in fact, that a ski or a ski boot of higher performance can once worn, be of greater support for student in the teaching learning phase, but it is not. For example, speaking of skiing, a beginner, who is passing from snowploughing, to turn and to a base curve with parallel skis, will need to use mainly a mid-level all-mountain. These models are not too “reactive” and, therefore, more usable by those who are refining their technical movements where some inaccuracies in the management of the movement and / or dynamic centrality inevitably may escape. Of this specific category of products also exist ad hoc versions for women, with skiing / advanced attack center (for easy handling) and a lower weight, plus a dedicated look.

A skier pointing straight for the improvement of ski driving (GOLD Level) should preferably opt towards more sportive products, such as Giant “Race Carve” (gs) or slalom (sl). Are models that tend to have more “full-bodied” structures, often with the addition of reinforcements in carbon and titanal, to provide greater stability during the cornering, even at high speed. It goes without saying that the student should put into practice the good advice of a ski instructor…

The Equipment Set-Up How Much Is Needed?

The Italian Ski School recommends to live the passion for the white sport with the material, primarily skis, bindings and boots then, under optimal conditions and with a good tuning. In this case, the boot should be checked periodically as a whole: Control efficacy locking hooks, checking for possible wear (excessive) of the sole and general integrity analysis of the practices of both gambit and hull. As much attention should be given to attacks to maintain a high level of efficiency and security, they should be checked in relation to the tightening screws on skis, and it is appropriate to sprayed special lubricant in the toe and heel soft area.

As for the ski, this must be properly “prepared”, ie, it must be controlled and eventually set up in a specialized center (the so-called lab), just as the car review that mechanical periodically do. The skiman, that is the one that provides to tune the skis, in fact, is able to check the state of wear of the blades as well as the insole and, if he thinks it’s useful, to manhandle the ski restoring the verve of when it was purchased.

It is well to note that contrary to what most people think a ski well prepared, thus more “fast”, thanks to an effective waxing, and with the thread of the blades well “pulled”, then able to bite the best more compact snow, it is a factor for the student of practical help in the technical / teaching progression phase. To be clear, the exercises or the execution of the curves with the “right moves” suggested by the teacher will be much easier and intuitive to put into practice … and the lesson will be more fun and rewarding!
