4 steps will lead you to your personal dream ski
So that the selection of skis doesn’t become torture and you don’t get lost in the jungle of materials around radii, ski widths, lengths and such, here’s a little guide to choosing skis.
1. The type of skier
Honest self-assessment is required when it comes to self-analysing your skiing ability and style. Whether beginner, recreational skier, allrounder, athlete or racer – there are different, appropriate models for each type. Whether beginner, recreational skier, allrounder, athlete or racer – there are different, appropriate models for each type.
2. The ski category
The type of ski must fit the type of skier. Race carvers are suitable, for example, for athletes and racers who maintain a fast speed. But beginners would be better served with a recreational carver. Allrounders feel better with an off-run ski or an all-mountain ski. The employees at Sport Lohmann will be happy to assist you in selecting the best ski model for your individual needs.
3. The dream ski
A large selection of ski models from all categories is available at Sport Lohmann. With the Test and Buy offer, you can test and try out your skis before you decide to buy.
4. It’s not a matter of size

Tips for buying ski boots
It’s a matter of size
The ski boot should fit pleasantly and snugly but not constrict or cause pressure at certain points. The heel must have a good hold. A ski boot should never be purchased too large because, in use, it will stretch about another 1/2 size.
Looks are not decisive
Firstly a ski boot must fit well, not look great.
The right sole
The right sole insert can optimise the function of the boot, e.g. when using thermal sole inserts.
Try on the ski boots for 4 hours rather than have a ski vacation with painful feet! ! Be aware that your feet will swell slightly during the day and thus will be a bit larger in the evening!
So it is better to buy the ski boot in the afternoon.

A note on boot care
Ski boots get stiffer in the cold. So never store them out in the cold (e.g. in the trunk or outdoors). After a day of skiing, the boots have to dry out. Ideally, a ski boot dryer or ventilator should be used. Every 2-3 days, you should also pull out the inner sole so the boot can dry out fully.
