Ben Lustgarten races in the 2019 Tour de Ski

Skirack cross country ski fit expert, Jake Hollenbach will be doing a series of short Q&A's with Skirack sponsored athlete Ben Lustgarten while he races the Tour de Ski and 2019 World Cups. Enjoy Part 2!

QUESTION: What was your favorite town/race venue the Tour de Ski traveled through?
ANSWER: The first question is pretty hard! All of these towns are so cool and unique, with amazing views of mountains. There was not a ton of natural snow in some of the locations, mostly all on man made, small snow loops. Val Mustair in Switzerland was very cool. We stayed in a small town that had incredibly tiny streets and we drove through what looked like castles and ramparts to get there.

When a new customer comes in for a downhill ski boot, we assess the foot as well as the skier and take a multi-point measurement of their foot. We then select 1 or 2 pairs of boots that should fit their feet pretty well and after the skier tries them on, we will determine what exact pair they should be skiing in that year.

"You don't need to try on 15, 16, 20 different pairs of ski boots to find the perfect fit - you just need to find someone to assess your foot, assess you as a skier, and knows the current boots who can put those pieces together very easily." Doug Stewart, Skirack Downhill Ski Boot Fitter.

Small Town Mountains Opening Up for Bike Lift Access!

Only a few years ago, the idea that a small dual chair mountain would invest in lift access biking would seem foolish. Coupled with immense overhead, steep competition from larger resorts and what was still a very niche sport, the return on investment just wasn’t clear – and the risk for locally owned hills was potentially fatal.

But things have changed. With the explosive growth of Mountain Biking across the Green Mountain State and broader New England, small town mountains are seeing a more solid path to profitably supporting the logistics and overhead associated with digging and staffing trails.
