What kind of skier are you?

Equipment Selection Guide


You will find the best options for kids in our Junior and Baby categories. Junior skis range from 120-160cm suitable for kids up to a 13 years-of-age maximum. The Baby category is dedicated to the little ones: skis from 70-100 cm. We also offer a Junior Race category – contact us by e-mail to book these. (Recommended length: 20cm less than the height of the child for a beginner, and 10cm less than the height of the child for intermediate and advanced.)


If you’re just starting out and tend to ski in a snowplow most of the time, the ski for you is an Easy Carving ski – light and easy-going, great for learning! (Recommended length: 15cm less than skier’s height.)


If you parallel ski but you’re not looking for anything to difficult, or you would like to work on your technique, the best ski for you is in the Performance category. These skis have a more rigid construction, but they manage easily and adapt to various snow conditions. (Recommended length: 10cm less than skier’s height.)


If you’re a very capable skier and you love to have fun on the slopes, you’ll find your skis in the Top category (high-performance skis from past seasons), or Platinum (recent high-performance skis), or Diamond (premium models and next-season’s preview skis.) You will find skis for every expertise:

Giant Slalom (GS) Rigid and with a longer sidecut radius, ideal for sustained speed and medium/wider turns. (Recommended length: equal to skiers height.)

Race Carve (RC) Fun, manageable, and adapted for all turn radiuses, these skis are a perfect compromise between GS and slalom. (Recommended length: 10cm less than the skier’s height.)

Slalom Special (SL) Agile and responsive, these skis are perfect for skiers who like aggressive approaches into tight turns. (Recommended length: 10/15cm less than the skier’s height.)


If you generally ski on groomed slopes but every now and then head off-piste or into powder terrain, find your All Mountain skis in the Top, Platinum, and Diamond categories. This ski type is an all-around performer featuring a wider base under the boot to distinguish it from a purely on-piste ski. (Recommended length: equal to or 10cm less than the skier’s height or based on personal preference.)

Women Skiers

From the range of options offered specifically for women skiers, we’ve chosen high-performance skis that are also lighter and more manageable. We have the latest boots designed to keep feet warm. Women skiers enjoy the high quality of these types of skis featuring structures and sizes produced especially for women.


You’re an expert and you want exclusive, technical skis look for your skis in the Diamond category. These are very high-performing skis constructed of the best and latest materials, including FIS ski models and the range of Stöckli skis From the beginning of February, look for next season’s most-anticipated models.
