Stein Erik sen Ski School Supervisor We can do everything right with out bodies but if our boards aren't the right length or type, skiing can be a real hassle. ; ' Just a few years back a gentleman by the name of Clif Taylor introduced short skis to the ski world. Although many of -us shunned these skis as kid's skis, nevertheless, they did catch on and have become the biggest boon to skiers and ski instructors since safety binding. , : In years past, ski lengths varied from 190 to 220 centimeters. Now the same people are skiing on 150 to 200 centimeter skis. The correct ski length for each individual skier is determined by a)physical condition and size of skier b) amount of time spent skiing in an average season and c) type of skiing desired. If you only get to ski 15 or 20 days a winter you never really get in good enough shape to handle a long ski. Stick with the shorter ones and have more fun. Even people, that ski everyday are skiing on shorter skis. The qnly valid reason to use longer skis is if you race or like to ski a little faster than average.' But, on the other , hand, if your skis are too short they will tend to slip too much and you will have a hard time carving a nice arc in your turns.

During periods of inclement in-clement weather the canyon mouth will be patrolled by Salt Lake County sheriffs deputies and t Highway Patrolmen. . On days when the canyon road is clear, the motorists without snow tires or chains who is responsible for a traffic problem will be cited. The action follows a state resolution adapting a policy sought by ski area operators, based on experience showing that good weather can turn bad quickly and lead to traffic jams as ill-equipped cars get stuck in the fresh snow. The regulation will apply during any kind of weather, 24 hours a day between Nov. 1 and March 31. And despite their better traction, standard radial tires do not qualify as snow "tires." ., '?.'.'' ' Trucks and' buses are not -exempt from the regulations :Uhd drivers of these vehicles ill be cited also if they create a traffic problem, in lt'.No Longer Downhill For Pyles A former downhill bullet on the U.S. Ski Team who scored top-ten World Cup results during his four-year amateur A tenure.
