Both are hard to cut. Skis often have metal edges that are very hard to cut through. Otherwise, the rest of the ski is not too hard to cut through. But, make sure not to breathe it, as it is fiberglass; VERY BAD for the lungs!

It depends on what type of slider you want. Some want flat sliders. I try to router h-block grooves in mine. You can go thinner without h-block grooves. Also depends on body weight and how tough you are going to be on them. I stack mine. I start narrow and widen toward the h-block. I used 3/4" stock for the base, so that the h-block cut outs would not weaken the material. The Spaniards do an entirely different style of slider that can be thinner.

I'll post pics of my sliders after this post for a visual idea of what I am talking about. Hope it helps.

 The plastic piece on the left is attached to the plate, with the middle piece attached to it, and the right piece being attached closest to the ground as an H-Block for slides:


Once put together, you can see the widest piece on the bottom here:


Here is the view from beneath :

 A strickywear slide plate is totally different. Here is a pic of one:


I think you would do better with something like this for the light weight factor. Though, I personally, would most likely cut an H-Block groove into them if I made them.

Ah....my set up is insane, eh! LOL!! j/k

I'd guess that 3/4" thick would be good enough for you.
Anyone else want to chime in?
