Camber The curve built into the main body of a ski to allow an even distribution of the skier's mass over the whole ski in contact with the snow.

A soft-cambered ski will exhibit an even distribution, whilst a stiffer or harder-cambered ski is constructed so that the mid-section (or wax pocket) of the ski is held above the surface of the snow except when it is being heavily weighted.
