Your feet never need to be cold again when skiing.

Your feet never need to be cold again when skiing.

One of the most common complaints about skiing is that it is cold.  But, embracing winter is a big part of the ski lifestyle.  Being in the mountains in winter is an amazing experience, and skiing is one of the best ways to enjoy what nature has to offer. But, the problem is it is cold out there.  And, what seems cold to some, is bitter cold to others.  For many skiers, the one thing that is difficult is keeping the feet warm.  Our feet are the furthest part of our body from the heart, and we are engineered to...

What is new in skis for 2019?  (Rossignol)

This is an exciting time of year here at Proskiguy.  All the new skis are rolling into the store, and this is when we finally get to see the skis in our store that we skied on for the first time last winter's ski tests.  Since no ski company can change everything, every year, it is always a leap frog sort of situation, with new models introduced from some brands that are trying to jump past models from other brands that have been hot sellers last season. After a few years of Rossignol Experience models not changing too much, that...

How to choose a ski size

Posted by Don Clark on

"What size skis should I buy?"  That is one of the most commonly asked questions we receive here at Proskiguy.  And, the answer to it is not always easy for us to offer.  It depends on a lot of factors; size, skill, preferred terrain, and more.  But, there is one set of numbers that can often provide a good first hint.  And those numbers are the sizes that the  particular ski is offered in. For instance, compare two skis, from the same manufacturer that are approximately the same width.  Nordica Enforcer 93, and Nordica Navigator 90.  The E93 comes in...

When you find the best place to stand on a ski, IT IS MAGIC.

Posted by Don Clark on

     At Proskiguy, we believe that there is an issue that is mostly ignored when helping skiers choose new gear and then the ski, binding, and boot system is being assembled.  Many of us do not think about these three items as a complete system, but in fact, that is exactly how it all works on the snow for you.  It is easy to understand how a ski too long, or too short will not offer us the maximum performance.  Hopefully we also know that a boot that is too big, too small, uncomfortable, or the the wrong flex will...

If you own powder skis, why don't you own groomer skis?

Posted by David Rosi on

So, many skiers today own more than one pair of skis.  But, even more of us own just one pair, and it might be a ski that was the new, hot model over the past few years.  If that is the situation for you, that ski might be a Soul 7, Nordica Enforcer 100, Blizzard Bonafide, Volkl 100Eight, Bent Chetler, or ???  What all of these skis have in common is that they are 100 mm wide or wider.  They ski great in the morning after a big storm the night before.  Or, they ski great when the storm is...
