Ski & Snowboard Boot Fitting
Why does a good boot matter?
For skiers and snowboards alike, perhaps no other equipment selection can have a bigger impact on your overall experience and maximize your enjoyment on the slopes than your boots. They are the link between your skis and board. They are responsible for transferring energy from your body to your skis or board, providing feedback from the snow surface, and keeping your feet warm and protected. How well they perform these duties depends on how well they fit. Properly fit boots can improve comfort, increase performance, and help avoid injury. Our friendly staff have the experience to help guide you towards the best fitting equipment. When recommending ski and snowboard boots, we will help you narrow down the options based on your foot anatomy, body mechanics, ability level, commitment level and goals.
First and foremost, boot fitting should not be rushed and usually takes an hour or more to be done properly. Bring your favorite ski or snowboard socks (if less than a year old) or purchase new ones. Also bring your old pair of boots with you - this can help the fitter make a more informed recommendation. We will ask a lot of questions as measure all aspects of your feet including function of your foot to determine a proper selection of boots for you to try on. Additionally we will recommend the correct foot bed to enhance the fit and performance of the boots. Once a selection has been made, we will finalize the fit and provide any modifications to get you dialed into your new boots in addition to care and storage information, to ensure you receive the maximum enjoyment and lifespan from your new equipment.
