Do your skis match the conditions?
Given the radical swings in temperature and snow conditions we are experiencing in the upper Midwest this season, it is time to reevaluate your race ski quiver.
Cold weather skis:
In general, skis that perform best in cold temperatures have a longer hinge zone, spreading the pressure across more area which in turns minutely melts the snow to enhance glide.
Warm weather skis:
In warmer weather, look for skis that have a shorter area of contact and a quick release so that less water has a chance to stick to the base.
We carry excellent race skis for both warm and cold conditions from Atomic, Peltonen, Salomon, and Yoko. Swing by the shop with your skis and we will make sure you’re ready for all the crazy weather!
