Carry skis...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hallo...
Let me first of apologize for my poor English..

Second off I am new at skiing.. And find it a lot of fun  But since I am new, I do not have very much experience so therefor I ask you for your opinion.

When I was out skiing last year. I had a lot of trouble carrying my skies all the way from our house, to the lift.. And it felt as a big problem for me...

Was wondering if anybody else also think it is a problem to carry the skies around.. I mean whenever you are not skiing do you have any trouble at all carrying or is it just me?

If you also include driving in your carrying to the hill, you should get a ski bag and ski rack if your skis don't fit in the trunk of your car.

This is where a wife comes in handy.

It's not hard to carry skis as long as they stay together.  Make sure the ski brakes interlock and squeeze the skis together to make sure they are snug.  In the beginning try some type of Velcro tie - get a set at the ski shop for cheap.  You can carry the skis either way, tips forward or tips back - top sheet on your shoulder or sidewall on your shoulder.

But what about carrying boots.

Boots are the easy one. Velcro the two top straps of the boots together and you have an instant carrying strap.

Yup, this means you can hang them either side of you non-ski-carry shoulder. You don't have to carry boots often because you are usually walking in them when a carrying skis.

 If you're going to use one of those, you might as well go with the good ole fashioned Texas Suitcase:
