description to select your classification.
TYPE I SKIERS
"Cautious Skiing at lighter release/retention
* ski conservatively
* prefer slower speeds
* prefer easy, moderate slopes
* favor lower than average release/retention settings.
* this corresponds to an increased risk of inadvertent binding
release in order to gain increased releasability in a fall
* Type 1 settings apply to "entry-level skiers uncertain
of their classification"
"moderate skiing at average release/retention
* ski moderately
* prefer a variety of speeds
* ski on varied terrain, including most difficult trails
* are all skiers who do not meet all the descriptions of either
Type I or Type II
TYPE III SKIERS
"aggressive skiing at higher release/retention
* ski aggressively
* normally ski at high speeds
* prefer steeper and more challenging terrain
