Ski shape categories can be relative to every skier, but the following are Folsom’s shape categories based on what shapes are skied most frequently in certain snow types. As always, don’t hesitate to fill out a custom fit form or contact us if you’d like assistance determining the best shape for your skiing.
FRONTSIDE / CARVING
Frontside / Carving shapes are narrower underfoot and generally perform the best on groomed or firmer snow.
All Mountain skis fall mostly within 95-110mm underfoot, and are more capable in mixed conditions.
POWDER / BIG MOUNTAIN
Powder / Big Mountain skis are 113mm underfoot or greater to generate superior float. They excel in high alpine terrain and soft snow conditions.
