How to choose skis for older skiers?

Here are some key features to consider when choosing skis for older adults. These factors will help ensure a safe and enjoyable skiing experience.

01

Shorter = better

For older skiers, it's usually better to pick slightly shorter skis than usual. Shorter skis are easier to control, reducing pressure on your knees and hips. But don't choose skis that are too short, as it might make skiing less smooth.

02

Soft forgiving flex

Forgiving skis are easier to control and less likely to catch an edge. Look for skis with a slight rocker profile or softer flex to help prevent falls and make skiing more fun.

03

Light weight

Choose skis that are not too heavy. As we get older, we might not have the same strength and agility. Lighter skis are easier to carry and handle, making skiing easier on the knees, less tiring, and more fun.

04

Waist width

Skis come in different widths, which affect how they perform in different snow conditions. For older skiers, it's usually best to choose skis with a wider waist. This gives you more stability and makes skiing in soft snow more comfortable.

05

Skill level

If you're an older skier, you likely have experience on the slopes. Choose skis that match your skill level, whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced skier.

I found my unicorn!

As a lifetime skier I have always loved the sport but STRUGGLED with the boots! I have giant calves and despite ordering custom boots I still struggled to be comfortable enough to want to continue the sport. I always joked that if I could just do snowboard boots with skis I’d be set. Then I found SnowFeet!!! I have done more skiing this year than any other year in my adult life! Including some time in Utah. What a life changer for me.

I love my snowfeet skiboards!

Got ACL injury two yeas ago using skis and i thought that’s it for me. Took my chances buying the snowfeet skiboards and i love it! I love rollerblading when i was younger and it felt like the same thing in snow when i got to try these! Now i am excited to visit snow resorts again here in california!

My Skiboards were a Blast!!

I have been looking for a ski option was that nimble, light, easy to transport and travel with; the 65cm Skiboards are PERFECT!!

I had a blast with these ski's, so much fun! I was also able to pack them in a duffle bag with my snowboard boots and check them like regular luggage. Excited for my next trip to the mountain!
