all of them do.It is safety rules and a skiing club cant hand out ski's if they dont match the rules
So when you fall your leg comes out of the ski boot?

When I went they didn't have that.

my mother has permenantly damaged her knee joint skiing (cant ski anymore) simply by twisting to avoid a speeding idiot. she didnt even fall, but it was a life changing injury.

How does that work though? I mean, if you fall sideways, how will it come out without twisting your leg first?

Hehe, the point of Tamworth is that it isn't a dry slope, it's a real snow slope.

It's harder than skiing and more dangerous. It's very hard to stop, if you try and side stop you end up spinning in circles and you can't snowplough stop on them. The bindings aren't quick release either so if you twist your leg, the blades won't come off as easily.

They're designed to come off when they hit an uneven surface. Beginners' skis are set to come off more easily than advanced skiers' skis. When you fall, the impact on your skis (in theory) will cause them to come off before the rest of your body hits the ground.

Only problem then is chasing them down the slope...

Sorry, didn't mean to make it sound bad! It is fun, just have to be careful. Like skiing and snowboarding in general I guess
