Differences between short and long skis

Every ski length has its pros and cons. Learn the main differences between short and long skis and see how the length affects your skiing style and performance on the slopes.

01

Maneuverability

Short skis are easier to turn because they are shorter, making them more agile and responsive, especially on narrow or twisty slopes. Long skis are harder to turn in tight spaces but offer better stability at high speeds.

02

Speed and Stability

Short skis are stable for beginners and slow skiing but can feel less steady at high speeds or in rough conditions. Long skis are more stable, especially at high speeds and on tough terrain, because their length and surface area reduce vibrations and improve control.

03

Playfulness

Short skis feel more fun and lively, making quick turns, jumps, and tricks easier, especially in terrain parks or moguls. Long skis feel more stable and grounded, which might seem less playful but are great for carving wide turns.

04

Floatation

Short skis are less effective in deep snow or powder because they sink more due to their smaller surface area. Long skis float better in deep snow, keeping skiers on top of the snow for a smoother ride.

05

Skill level

Short skis are great for beginners and intermediate skiers because they are easy to maneuver and more forgiving. Long skis are best for advanced and expert skiers who have the skills to handle their length and stability at high speeds and on different terrains.

I made it down the mountain!

I've tried skiing and snowboarding, but I have never made it down the mountain(even the bunny slopes were too much for me). I wanted to participate in the snow fun, but just couldn't get my feet right. Then, I saw a video with someone using these tiny skis. My mind was blown! I just had to get a pair of these skiskates. This winter season, I've SUCCESSFULLY made it down the mountain (even without falling!) Miracles do happen! Skating down the hill did the trick.

Simply easy and fun

Learning was easy, practical, when using them you never stop having fun, stopping was easy after a few times of practicing, getting up without fear of hurting your knee, they are the best, I would never change them

Love my 44's

I love the mobility that you get from ski skates. Also, they're fast enough to have plenty of fun. I think they're perfect for working with young skiers as well. I can easily skate and tow my 5 year old. If I'm on a slope with her, it's really convenient to have my 44's on. I can walk uphill to her, pick her up, put a strap / harness on her and guide her downhill easily. They are perfect for working with youngsters because you have such mobility when skiing close to them. They make for a fun day on the groomers.
