How to choose the best skis for older skiers?

Here are several features and factors to keep in mind when choosing skis for older adults.

01

Shorter = better

For older skiers, it's usually better to pick a bit shorter skis that what you would typically choose. Shorter skis are easier to control, which puts less pressure on your knees and hips. But be careful not to choose skis that are too short, because then it might be harder to ski smoothly.

Soft forgiving flex

Forgiving skis have features that make them easier to control and less likely to catch an edge. Look for skis with a slight rocker profile or a softer flex, as these can help prevent falls and make skiing more enjoyable.

Lightweight material

Choose skis that aren't too heavy. As we age, we may not have the same strength and agility. Lighter skis are easier to carry and maneuver, making skiing easier on the knees, less physically demanding and more fun.

Waist width

Skis come in different widths, which affect their performance in different snow conditions. For older skiers, it's generally recommended to choose skis that have a wider waist. This will give you more stability and make skiing in soft snow more comfortable.

Easy transition from Snowboarding

As a former snowboarder, I opted for the 65 cm Snowfeet Skiboards with snowboard bindings to help train my 3-year-old on skis. The transition was seamless, and I was pleasantly surprised by the performance. By the end of my first day, I could navigate the mountain, ski backwards, and maintain control while skiing with my daughter. A great success for both of us!

At 37 years old, 6'4", and 255 lbs, I've found the 65 cm Snowfeet ski boards with snowboard bindings to be a game-changer. Not only have they been a hit at Mt Hood in the PNW, but they've also given me the ability to assist my 3-year-old on skis with ease. Now, my wife can take a break from ski training, which has made our mountain adventures fun for everyone.

If you are primarily looking for a short ski to help train youngsters, I may recommend trying the 99 cm option. I believe that will give you a little better stability behind you to prevent falling backward. It took me one or two falls to figure out the body positioning while holding on to training ropes, but I still am very happy with the 65 cm option. I'm intrigued with the 99 cm powder ski option when they are available with snowboard bindings! Let's just say since I've purchased these skiboards, my snowboard hasn't left the truck!

Excellent short skis, highly recommend

Yesterday was my first full-day riding my 99 CM Snowblade Short Skis up in Big Bear, California. The experience was awesome and I highly recommend these skis! The build quality is top-notch and the 99 CM length is a perfect balance of responsive maneuverability that can also handle steeper runs and faster speeds. It was very easy to get started and I was comfortably riding the entire mountain top to bottom by the end of the day. Riding backwards was surprisingly easily which was very nice when looking back up hill to help friends/kids who are learning to ride. I'm confident that these skis will be also be great for riding with my kids while they learn and I'm looking forward to taking them on my next trip to Mammoth in a few weeks.

It’s super fun with them!

Definitely a bit of learning curve coming from longer skis but it’s nice to see by the end of the ride I’m getting more used to it. I like the freedom and the mobility that you can have with them, changing directions really quickly. I highly recommend them.

Skiboards are super cool!

It’s just so different from regular skiing. It makes skiing so much exciting. They are very light. Skiing with them feels almost like you’re skiing down in boots.

First rides were a lot easier than I expected.

It’s really nice skiing with them. It’s a lot easier than my long skis. Getting in the crevises of random moguls was a lot easier.

It’s a ton of fun!

They are a lot more lighter, more agile than a regular pair of skis. I like doing a lot of jumps and stuff like that and they are perfect for it. Very different feel from regular skis. It was fun to see how quick I can turn around. If you get the chance, definitely give them a go. You will have a lot of fun for sure.

Definitely try them out!

They are a lot easier than I expected because I skied long skis and then switching up to these 99 cm I had no problem picking it up. It’s lot different than skiing but it’s got a lot of similarities, especially if you ski shorter skis, the balance is not something to worry about. I had no problem skiing through moguls, it’s a lot more fun than long skis.
