AllyG, assuming you classify yourself as a level 2 skier, a DIN setting of 7 would indicate that you weigh 79-94kg, are between 5' 11" and 6' 4" tall and ski in a boot with a sole length of 311-330mm. If that's the case I wouldn't want to meet you on a dark night!


Crikey you've got me worried now

Swingbeep - I tried using this DIN calculator:

http://www.dinsetting.com/

And concluded that it's pretty impossible trying to pick the right DIN setting.

If I class myself as a class 2 skier, which is an 'average/moderate' skier then apparently I should have a DIN of 6.0

However, if I class myself as a class 3 'aggressive, higher speed skier' then I should have a DIN of 7.0.

I mean - how stupid is that? If I'm in the 3 valleys I'm faster and more aggressive then the average skier, but if I'm in Tignes I'm slower and less aggressive than the average skier.

And - I entered height of 5'10'' weight of 67-78Kg and whatever a size 8 shoe was (sorry forgotten the answer).

Maybe I went wrong somewhere?

I got the same result from the calculator as my ski shop has set mine bindings to after checking my weight and asking me how I ski.
