What are the bindings for?

Although many skiers tend to choose their skis before picking bindings, the bindings are in fact the most important part of the package. They ensure your safety and help you keep your balance on the skis. It is thanks to the bindings that you will be able to transmit and distribute the right pressure on your skis in order to be perfectly in control of any situation. Last but not least, it is the bindings on your skis that will allow you to take off your shoes quickly, especially in case of a fall, in order to protect your joints.

Difference between downhill and alpine skiing

There is actually no difference between downhill and alpine skiing. They are the same sport. In fact, downhill skiing and alpine skiing are interchangeable. In the world of skiing, however, alpine skiing encompasses a family of sports that includes freeride and freestyle skiing, for example, which are practised off-piste.


No. 1 alpine skiing discipline: freeride skiing

Freeride skiing is a sport derived from alpine skiing in the 70s. It is simply off-piste skiing which has in recent years been called "freeride". Unlike conventional alpine skiing or downhill skiing, this consists of freeing yourself from all the rules existing in the resort to ski in total freedom on the off-piste powder snow.


No. 2 alpine skiing discipline: freestyle skiing

Freestyle skiing also belongs to the alpine ski family. Freestyle skiing, which dates back to the 80s and is also known as acrobatic skiing, consists of performing tricks in the air. Freestyle skiing is most commonly practised in snowparks but also directly in the off-piste powder.


Freeride and freestyle equipment: double-tip skis

Double-tip skis or bi-tip skis are slightly curved at the back and front. This allows full freedom of movement, a great advantage for freeride and freestyle skiing. In addition, these double-tip skis, also known as twin tip skis are softer than traditional alpine skis. Freeride and freestyle skis are ultimately both wider and longer. They differ from classic alpine skis as well as from versatile skis which, as the name suggests, allow a multi-purpose approach.

Skiing equipment to go with your pair of downhill skis

To complete your alpine skiing kit, you will need a little more skiing equipment. What you need:

- Alpine ski boots

- Alpine/downhill ski poles

- A ski helmet

- Ski mask/goggles

- Ski gloves

After that, it's down to you to choose some thermal base-layers and a ski outfit that are to your taste, to keep you warm and stylish on the slopes.

Learn more about downhill skiing

Curious? Here is some information about alpine skiing: the origins, the best places to practice it, the champions...


The invention of alpine skiing

Opinions differ and many people want to take credit for the invention of downhill skiing. It is difficult to say who was really the first to use skis to ski down a snowy slope. However, the sport was officially put forward for competition by the Englishman Arnold Lunn, in 20th century Switzerland. A gliding fanatic, he began to organise races and was even the official inventor of the slalom in 1922.


Why is alpine skiing called alpine skiing?

It seems that alpine skiing is called alpine skiing... simply because it comes from the Alps!

Originating in the Bernese Alps, this is the place that gave its name to the sport at the beginning of the 20th century.


The best countries for downhill skiing

Where better to practice downhill skiing than in its birthplace, the Alps?

Among the many places where downhill skiing can be practised, the countries that share the Alps are all excellent destinations. Italy, Austria, Switzerland and of course France are all very popular with skiers. France is in fact the country with the most ski passes sold per day in Europe, and has one of the largest ski areas in the world with 325 downhill ski resorts.

Further north in Europe, alpine skiing has also been practised for more than a hundred years in Sweden and Norway, where the ski resorts are very well known.

As for Asia, Japan is renowned for its beautiful ski slopes, although it is hard to outdo China with its peaks of over 8000m.

Finally in North America, the USA and Canada are a dream option for alpine skiing.


The alpine skiing world champions

The 2021 alpine skiing world champions are:

- Downhill: Vincent Kriech-Mayr (Austria) and Corinne Suter (Switzerland)
- Slalom: Sebastian Foss-Solevåg (Norway) and Katharina Liensberger (Austria)
- Giant Slalom: Mathieu Faivre (France) and Lara Gut-Behrami (Switzerland)
- Super G: Vincent Kriech-Mayr (Switzerland) and Lara Gut-Behrami (Switzerland)
- Combined: Marco Schwarz (Austria) and Mikaela Shiffrin (USA)
