How To: Put on your skis

Save energy and valuable ski school time by learning how to step into your skis properly. This short video clip demonstrates the best way to put your skis on.

  • Ski position: If you're on a slope, place the skis so they are pointing across the incline, not pointing up or down the incline otherwise your skis will run away!
  • Stand below your skis: Stand on the downhill side before putting your skis on and step into the DOWNHILL ski first. Ensure you don't stand on the uphill side.
  • Finishing with the top ski: Keep your skis across the slope whilst you step into the uphill ski. Teach yourself this before your first ski lesson and really impress your ski instructor!
