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.

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.

3 Steps to the Perfect Downhill Ski Boot Fit: S’il Vous Plaît

From December to March, as a boot-fitter and ski instructor, I spend just about every day working with skiers to maximize their skiing fun on the hill. And from the first-time skier, to seasoned professionals, I am always amazed at how many people suffer from ill-fitting ski boots. Nothing ruins the sport of skiing quite like a painful boot! While boots on their own are rarely bad boots, the actual problem is the compatibility between a skier and his/her boots. Connecting a skier with the proper boot is the process of boot fitting, and it is the art of making your skiing experience the best imaginable. A great boot fit is always available, you just need to know what to look for.

‘Please’ in French is s’il vous plaît (often abbreviated S.V.P.) This is the Acronym I use to help people remember the important parts to getting a quality boot fit.
