Can Your Skis Tell the Temperature?

“My skis can tell if it’s cold or not!”-7 year old kid

20140111-190006.jpg

My friend was running a kids ski camp. At the end of the day one of the kids came up to him:

” Did you know my skis can tell if it’s cold or not?”

“Oh really?”

” Yeah they do, I don’t know how to read it but… See look!” (wipes off snow from skis)

At this point in time my friend didn’t really know what to think. Just go with it.

“On the bindings look! ” (points to DIN settings) ” it moves when it gets colder, I don’t know how to read it though…”

And to all of you who aren’t sure what DIN settings are, they are the part of your ski that keeps your boot in place. There is a number gauge denoting the tightness of the binding.
