Waist width is how wide skis are underfoot - directly under the binding at their narrowest point.
Skis for beginners are easy to maneuver, and generally feature foam or composite cores that are more flexible and forgiving. This skier is cautious and prefers to stay on green terrain.
Intermediate skis are designed to bridge the gap from beginner to advanced. This skier probably prefers a mix of green and blue terrain and will ski more aggressively as they become more confident.
Advanced skiers are those who can ski the whole mountain but don't prefer the most aggressive terrain for every run. Advanced skiers prefer a mix of blue and black terrain with the occasional run down extreme terrain.
Expert skiers are extreme skiers who prefer high speeds and steep terrain all of the time. These skis are usually the stiffest and will often feature some sort of metal or carbon laminate making them more demanding.
A demo ski is a used ski that comes with a mounted binding that can be adjusted to any boot size. Demo skis typically come from demo fleets or programs, whether on the mountain, in a mountain town shop, or from the manufacturer.
A new ski is brand new and has never been on snow. New skis can come either with or without bindings. If a ski is referred to as "flat" it means the ski does not come with bindings.
Some skis are paired with bindings while others are not. If a ski does not come with bindings, they must be purchased separately, as bindings are required to use a ski. We have a large selection of bindings available. When you select a ski you will see compatible bindings.
