What makes a ski easy to turn
Some skis are so easy to turn you hardly notice there length and some are the opposite. Is this caused by ski stiffness?
Jeepers Creepers, where'd you get the neat sneakers?!?!
hehehe giggle giggle giggle
But i tested the PE and 1080 last year. 1080 was MUCH easier and lighter to turn. IS this anything to do with softness of 1080?
stiffness size mount bindings material the skis made of

witness/activist in the great spamming of
Sidecut (ski carves based on how much there is), stiffness (stiff skis bite into turns better), and width (thinner ski is easier to get on edge). Mostly.
both skis were same length^
^ he didn't say ANYTHING about length
i was talking to snowman17
Most of it depends on the skier. Like if your a powerfull skier then a stiff ski will be better for you, If your a weaker (dont hammer into corners and put tons of pressure on the skis) than a softer ski will be best for you.
As for the ski, the side cut and effective edge is the biggest factor. This makes the truning radius. Also, the weight and thickness affects it also. Thinner skis with less weight have quicker edge to edge.
Bindings and Boots. Good bindings will help get better edge to edge making it turn easier. As well as if the binding is mounted in the suggested spot. (mounting the bindings outside of the recomended spot makes the ski handel worse. Skis are designed around where the binding center should be) Boots that are stiffer (while not the most comfie) will have a HUGE effect on how the ski handels. The softer the flex, the harder it is to turn with power.
Hope this helps.
