    longer narrower ski for speed If you like backcountry off trail skiing you ll want a wider ski for floatation on powder and improved balance shorter for maneuvering between obstacles like trees and with a more rigid camber to give you greater control Years ago ski lengths started around 180cm and increased by 5 cm to 215cm That meant that a retailer had to stock many sizes of each model he carried a huge investment in inventory Sometime around 1990 the Fischer Revolution hit the market and what a revolution it was Today a few manufacturers still make skis in the traditional lengths but most have switched to the compact design Each model is offered in 3 occasionally 4 lengths and weight range is the determining factor according to a chart for that model of ski The ski has been redesigned to be a shorter ski offering the same performance as the traditional length skis and less cumbersome This works well for most people but I have read that skiers weighing over 200lbs do not get a good glide with the compact ski Skis are also shaped meaning that they are widest in the front narrowest in the middle and wider again at the back but not as wide as the front The shaping aids in turning the ski The width measured in millimeters is often printed somewhere on the ski and will be a combination of numbers eg 65 52 60 The ideal width for your ski depends on how you like to ski The narrowest skis are generally those used for racing but a wider ski provides a broader base for balance and performs better on uneven terrain If you like to ski on both groomed trails at X C touring centers and to do some light backcountry on ungroomed trails or through the woods I recommend that you use skis no wider that 65 to 68 mm because most X C centers in the US set their tracks to 70mm Scraping the edges of the track gives an unpleasant sensation slows your speed and is no fun Boots and Bindings Control in cross country skiing is mostly achieved by motions of the foot and ankle that must translate to the ski through the boot and binding So if your boot is too soft or too big or if the binding does not firmly hold your boot to the ski efficiency is wasted and you will not have good control Twenty some years ago when I bought my first pair of skis the binding was a little toe clip and the boots were low and soft as slippers I had such problems with control I was afraid of going down even a little hill and couldn t turn at all Many a day I wanted to just give up Today most skiers who ski on groomed trails or easy backcountry chose Salomon also called SNS or NNN bindings These are similar in design and have proven their effectiveness
