Tips on hiring Skis and boots and snowboard and boots.
Boots
Wear one pair of ski socks when you go for fitting Start with the same size boot as you would take at home Fit should be snug allowing toes to wiggle and heel to left a little of the back Fasten all buckles and then bend at the knee. Different makes of boots have different designs so don’t be afraid to try on several pairs till you get the right fit.
Skis
Todays carving skis are shorter then the older style skis. Shop technicians will asses you based on your level . A beginner would have skis that are between chin and eye level.
Bindings
This is the part that hold the boot onto the ski. Shop technicians will ask your level and weight and set your binding according to this. Please be honest about your level and your weight. Providing incorrect information could lead to an accident and injury on the slopes
Snowboard Boots
These are comfy padded boots and should be the same size as you take in shoe size back home. Try this to start with and try and large size if this is too tight.
Snowboard
In snowboarding you are either a goody or a regular rider. This determines which is your lead foot on the board. If you don’t know, tell the technicians that you are a beginner and they will help decide which ride style suits you.
