Our family is going to go on a ski trip, but we have no experience and are a little worried about this sport. I want to know how to choose skis and ski poles and whether ski poles are needed for snowboarding so that we can continue to plan for the next step.

If you’re a beginner, choosing a soft ski board can make it easier for you to control, and as your skills improve, you can choose a hard ski board.
Ski poles are very important pieces of ski equipment that allow skiers to maintain balance and control speed while skiing. Snowboarding requires poles because they help you keep your balance and when you need to adjust your speed or direction, you can use them to help you control yourself better.
When choosing ski boards and ski poles, you need to consider your height, weight, skill level, and personal preferences. You can consult a professional ski coach or seek help at a sports equipment store, where they can help you choose the ski boards and ski poles that are right for you.
