You always want to strive to keep the bottom of your skis as smooth as possible. Therefore, do NOT ski over rocks, dirt, or any debris. Never, never, never ski on or walk in your skis on pavement. You will get so many scratches and nicks on the bottom of your skis that you will practically ruin them. Skiing over rocks can create huge divots that are detrimental to your ski. You can fill this with a special carbon compound, but do not do this unless you are experienced at tuning your skis. Have a ski professional do it for you. You also want to keep your edges free from burrs (nicks) and free from rust. It is CRITICAL to wipe your skis off when you are done skiing. You don't want to put them away went or your edges will rust. This is very, very, very bad. (I can't stress this enough.) Rusted edges will become dull and you will slide all over the hill. Take a towel or cloth and rub your skis down when you come inside. Make sure to remove snow and moisture from every part of your ski including the bindings. Also when you carry your skis don't let them scrape together. Use a Velcro ski wrapper that palces a soft pad between the two skis. You can find these at your local ski shop.

What is the difference between race skis and downhill skis?

Race skis have a more aggressive side cut and they generally have a wider tip for a sharper turning radius. Also the materials used for racing skis tend to be more expensive. The ski is usually a bit lighter and the materials used, built for high speeds and can take a beating. Down hill would be for a recreational use. For some one who just enjoys skiing rather than lives it.

What type of skis should you get?

Oh, that's a great question! First you have to tell me if you're asking about cross-country skis or downhill skis, but I'll just write short on both. Downhill: I recommend Atomic. There are very many different brands, but I'd recommend Atomic. Though, on amateur basis it doesn't matter so much. There aren't really so big differences, so nordica and fischer also work well. Cross-country: There are basically two great companies offering cross-country skis, Madshus and Fischer. Of course there are more than 2 companies, but these are the biggest and most famous ones. My personal opinion is that Fischer is better for skating skis, and Madshus is better for classic skis, but on an amateur basis that doesn't matter so much. Both of these work well, but you shouldn't pick any other than Madshus and Fischer. I hope this was helpful, and I really hope you didn't mean the models, cuse that would take ages to write :)

How do you attach rottefella nnn bc auto ski bindings?

The bindings come with installation instructions, but if you got used bindings that didn't come with instructions... Quick question: are you putting these on new skis, or on skis that already have bindings on them? If they're old skis, remove the bindings already installed and use the old screw holes for the new bindings. If they're new skis, take them to a ski tech. You've got to drill holes in your skis and there are lots of calculations involved - how much you weigh, the skis being used and the way you ski determine where your boots should be on the ski.
