    To be fair it was his comment that prompted that edit.

    why do you ask?
    Dunno'. Guess there's snow everwhere else.................

    Well he did say all else being equal. I suppose it's true (less area equals greater pressure on each part of the ski, including the tip), but why do you ask?

    Turn initiation usually starts with the tip - especially in powder conditions -- and it is much easier to turn or control the tip with a shorter ski. Both the lever effect, and, more importantly, less length getting in the way. Kind of like the same principle as turning a big boat versus a small boat.

    Dang, I thought the answer was bacon. Or did all those years of lurking on t-tips not teach me anything?

    I don't see how ski length or the binding effects pressuring the ski or your lateral foot to foot pressure. I can see how ski length and binding activity effect where the binding puts the pressure on the ski or how the binding would lever the pressure to the front of the ski and with a shorter ski this leverage would be greater.

    All other factors being equal, the shorter the ski the less power is needed from a telemark binding to pressure the front of the inside ski.
