gangstaliceDepending on what level of clients you're teaching I would recommend either slalom skis - of course no need the latest model or FIS approved or good all round skis, not too large and no twin tips as it blows the snow in the kids face when they ski behind you haha- it's a good compromise to look like a "good technical instructor", you're actually able to do a correct demo if needed (short turns etc) without drifting cause your edges are ruined from rails and as other said you don't care if kids or noobs step on them haha. I'm a ski instructor in Switzerland and that's what we all use here! Hope this helps!
nutz.what about when you need to reverse snowplow? doesn't not having a tail sorta fuck that up too
benjamin.rolloI just got a job teaching and was wondering if I should use my nice skis (Volkl Bridges) teaching or if I should buy a beater pair?
nutz.I'm getting my certification next month and I'm kinda wondering this too. I've got a pair of candide 2.0's and a pair of lizzies (not much choice there haha) which would be the ones to use if I'm literally only teaching complete noobs
