Give reasons - skis have a large area of contact with snow

Question asked by: vinayreem1

Asked on: 07 Jun 2010

Due to smooth surface of snow it is difficult to move on it. So when skis are used the area of contact is increased so that the number of irregularities also increase resulting in increase in the force of friction and helping the skier to move on without slipping and with better control.
