Checking your Ski Equipment now is very important for many reasons but 3 top reasons are

1. I get asked all the time ‘Why should I check my Ski Equipment, as I am not a good skier and spending lots of time on the beginner slopes with kids…” I always say try these- once you try new skis you are on cloud nine. Technology advancements, ski shape, size are some of the many reasons the new skis really do make a difference. You owe it to yourself as it will enhance your skiing skills, make skiing easier and give you more control on the slopes

2. Pair of Skis in the garage- should I use them…..Key here is check the bindings- visit your local ski shop and if you live in Calgary there are Sport Chek locations everywhere to have a pro look at the bindings to make sure they still are in good shape and meet current binding standards

3. Condition of the bases and edges of your skis- now I don’t get my skis tuned all that regularly as I ski mostly in soft, powder snow. But if you are visiting ski resorts that have hard snow or icy conditions regularly then you should get your skis tuned more often

    there are lots of independent ski shops all over the place that have pros that might have an idea which bindings still meet the current standard
    staff that actually ski can be found at your local shop
