There are 2 categories in skiing at OOTDOORS.

The first is for skis and you can see the range HERE. A ski is a narrow strip of semi-rigid material worn underfoot to glide over snow. Substantially longer than wide and characteristically employed in pairs, skis are attached to ski boots with ski bindings, with either a free, lockable, or partially secured heel. For climbing slopes, ski skins (originally made of seal fur, but now made of synthetic materials) can be attached at the base of the ski. Originally intended as an aid to travel over snow, they are now mainly used recreationally in the sport of skiing. The choice of skis and the necessary accessories can be overwhelming, but we have selected a range that should suit your needs.

The second category is for ski poles and you can see the range HERE. Ski poles, also referred to as poles (in North America) or sticks (UK), are used by skiers for balance and propulsion. Modern poles are most commonly made from aluminum and carbon fibre, though materials such as bamboo are still used. Poles are used in alpine skiing, freestyle skiing (with the exception of aerials), and cross-country skiing. Ski jumpers do not use poles. They are a must have item to aid your stability and balance when take to the slopes this winter. Our comprehensive range of poles provide are necessary for the beginner and expert alike.
