When you go to buy your ski gear, salespeople are trained to open the sale by asking a litany of questions. Be ready to reveal as much as you can about yourself as a skier. Make sure you cover these key subjects with your ski salesperson.
How many years have you been skiing and how frequently per season? How would you describe your skills?
Are you cautious and conservative or aggressive and attacking? Do you like speed? Are you a Finesse or Power skier?
CURRENT SKI PLANS
Where do you ski now? On what runs? Be as specific as possible as to where you ski and what sort of terrain and conditions you want to master. How much will you ski this year?
WHY YOU SKI
What motivates you to get on the hill? Fresh air with friends? Learning off-trail skills? Skiing with the kids? Mastering a challenging sport?
