What’s Up With DIN Settings on Skis?

This season, I’ve had some people show up with some pretty weird DIN settings on their skis. Mine are at 7 for my height, weight and skiing ability. I had a guy taller than me with a few more pounds had his set at like 4. WAY too low. He kept popping out. It was […]
