How Much Does Ski Equipment Weigh?

Thinking about planning a ski trip to catch some of that early powder?

Well, if you’re flying with all your ski gear, then you need to be wary of the weight of everything.

You may even just be curious how much all of that ski gear weighs you down when you’re riding the ski lift or whatever.

We took the time to do some research and come up with the average weight of all the equipment you need to hit the ski slopes.

On average, you’re looking at a weight of 8 pounds to 13 pounds for a pair of recreational downhill skis with bindings.

Keep in mind that the figures below are just averages and if you need the weight of your specific gear, then you’ll need to get those figures on your own.

How Much Do Ski Boots Weigh?

When you compare ski boots, you’ll notice that there is a lot of variety – and that includes the weight of the ski boots.

The average weight you can expect from your ski boots is around 1623 grams (3.5 pounds) for a single boot, or 3426 grams (7.15 pounds) for a pair of ski boots – but it may be more or less depending on which boots you use.

How Much Do Ski Bindings Weigh?

Ski bindings, if you’re not familiar with all of the ski equipment yet, are bits of metal that attach to the skis.

The purpose of ski bindings is to attach and secure your ski boots to your skis. 

They are an essential piece of ski gear, and since they are made of metal, they do add some weight to your ski gear.

The average weight for a set of ski bindings is 4.5 pounds (2041 grams).

Ski bindings with a DIN rating for 12 or higher are usually around 5 pounds (2268 grams) in weight for the set, but there are also more lightweight binding sets that target backcountry skiers and these bindings usually weigh under 4 pounds (1814 grams) for the set.
