What size skis do you need? Height, weight and your ability level all determine your ski size. As a general rule, look for a ski length that’s somewhere between your chin and the top of your head when you stand next to the upright skis.

Can Anyone Fly?

Believe the hype: catboarding rules and heliskiing is the best. And no matter who you are or where you come from, a good day in a heli or snowcat will reset your boundaries of how good life can be.

Make it Snow, Make it Snow, Make it Snow!

Despite record snowfalls in many ski areas last season, snowmaking is generally on the increase around North America.

How to Choose Downhill Skis – Terrain

Whether you’re hunting for the best skis for Whistler, want to ski powder in the Canadian Rockies, or need skis for eastern Canada (and east coast hardpack), you want to match your skis to your conditions. There’s a lot of crossover with skis, so many of them can be used in different types of snow and terrain, which gives you some flexibility. An important thing to think about is where you want to ski, not just where you can ski at present.
