What is an arch?
When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and heel, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the traction and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more tolerant and manageable the ski.
What is a rocker?
On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact towards the center of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: they are more manageable and buoyant on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more traction on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable your skis.
Small rocker facilitating approach to turns.
