I wouldn't say the information on the website you used is erroneous. Nor am I saying you're a galaxy away from accuracy. But, when reading a DIN chart, if there is a discrepancy between height and weight - as there is with your daughter - you use the line that is closer to the top of the chart.
- Your daughter's height = line I</font>
- Your daughter's weight = line J</font>
For a Type I skier
, you stay on the applicable line for height and/or weight. Line I
in this example.
For a Type II skier
, you move down one line from the initial line.
For a Type III skier
, you move down two lines from the initial line.
- You then select DIN - on the respective line - based on boot sole length. For instance, my boot sole length of 294mm, on the line (I) that applies to your daugher would net a DIN of 3.5.</font>
- If your little [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img] has a boot sole length of 331mm or greater, her DIN would, in fact, be three.</font>
Either way, we're not talking gigantic differences here; but Type I skiers are typically more release
oriented whereas Type III skiers are typically more retention
