Prefer slow speeds. Prefer easy, moderate slopes. Favour lower than average release/retention settings. This corresponds to an increased risk of inadvertent binding release in order to gain increased release capability in a fall. Novice Ski/Snowboard moderately. Prefer a variety of speed. Ride on a varied terrain, including most difficult trails. All skiers who do not meet all descriptions of either Type 1 or Type 2. Advanced Ski/Snowboard aggressively. Normally ski at higher speed. Prefer steeper and more challenging terrain. Favour higher than average release/retention settings.
