You are right that a good skier could ski just about any terrain with any ski. However, that does not overwrite the fact that skis have different characterstics which are based on its design. A narrow-waisted ski will be quicker edge to edge than a fatter one. A ski with more side-cut carves with more stablity. A longer ski will be more stable at speed and through crud than a shorter one, regardless of surface area.
