Downhill Ski Boot Adjustment

Jan 25, 2019 8:00:00 AM

What do you do when your downhill ski boot is giving you pain or discomfort? Did you know that the our Downhill Boot Fit Experts not only fit new boots, but can make adjustments to any downhill ski boot?

When a customer comes into Skirack with an existing downhill ski boot, the first questions we ask are: what's going on, what are the problems, and what can we solve? Based on their answers, we assess the foot and the boot to confirm compatibility. We can then advise if a new boot is needed or make modifications to the existing boot to address their issue. 

Call or stop by for more information and pricing on an existing boot fit.

Downhill Skiing and Touring with the New SHIFT Binding

The Atomic and Salomon Shift is brand new binding that combines the best of a traditional alpine ski binding, and that of a technical alpine touring binding. Being able to Shift from a technical pin toe piece, to a hard-charging driver toe piece that most alpine bindings have, it’s a new force to be reckoned with.

After a lengthy 7 years of R&D along with testing, the binding was finally released this season for purchase. One of the biggest draws to the binding is the fact that you can go uphill with the tech toe piece, then come downhill in a DIN-release binding. DIN is an industry standard for the amount of force it takes for the boot to release from the bindings. In a traditional tech toe piece, you just have two pins holding the boot in, lacking DIN. With the new combination of tech and DIN, it introduces safety where it heavily lacked before. This is why a fair amount of the Skirack staff has purchased the Shift, myself including.

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.
