What is the difference in the loading condition that you are you imposing on a ski when standing on snow or when walking on snow
When skier standing on snow he impose gravity force on ski and from Newton's third law a normal reaction apply on from snow to ski.
But when skier walking on snow several forces acting on ski like friction , gravity force etc. For eg. In the high-stakes environment of downhill skiing, the skier must be confident that the ski will be able to withstand the stress associated with high speeds, large g-forces, and an array of different loading conditions.
