This winter ski season all of the major Ski Companies have introduced skis with some degree of Rocker- where ski tips and sometimes tails- rise up from the snow surface. What does this do for you? Because of a shorter ski surface on the snow- rocker skis are generally more maneuverable. Make sure you size the skis for your Powder Ski size preference. The skis are a blast of fun in most conditions. Rocker makes any ski more versatile. Only drawback is real boilerplate conditions. In short skis with Rocker are a great choice for Fernie Alpine Resort or any ski resort like Fernie that receives incredible amounts of snowfall each winter.
