A 3+ HP router might be a bit heavy for most of the skis I see on this forum. The problem is that most skis have rods that go thru holes in the router base. The router base holes are designed for small, lightweight attachments like a edge guide, not for rods to support 1 12-15 lb router. So I would suggest a 2 HP router, or a stouter ski jig (to minimize bounce - i.e. flatter surface on work piece).
Note: Bit size and depth of cut will determine how much power you need and how nice the finish is. Smaller diameter nbits and lower depth of cuts will reduce power required and increase finish quality.
