Effective Edge This is the length of metal edge on the Skis which touches the Snow. It is the effective part which is used to make a turn. The Effective Edge is in contact with the Snow when the Ski is in a carved turn. A longer Effective Edge makes for a more stable, controlled ride. On the other hand, a shorter Effective Edge makes a looser, easier turning Ski.
