Women’s Ski Boot Fitting Process
A proper fitting pair of ski boots is essential to a good day on the hill. A poor boot fit can cause pain, fatigue and and prevent the skier from progressing to the next ability level. It can cause injuries that can prevent you from skiing in the future.
Many bootfitters like to talk about last, flex and other features of the boot. At outdoor DIVAS we believe that “Fit” is the most important feature. While the specifications of a boot do have some importance, we know that YOUR feedback is the key to finding the right boot. Some boot fitters will have you think that THEY are the key to the boot fitting correctly by fully customizing it to you. Who wants to spend their vacation or ski season in a chair getting their boots worked on? We want you to find the best possible option out of the box. Adjustments can always be made, but we strive to make your time in the chair as effective as possible.
At outdoor DIVAS we use a very straightforward process to fit ski boots. Our method breaks the ski boot fit down in 3 key areas we call FIT ZONES. Your boot fitter will explain each zone to you, let you know where it is located, what it should feel like in a new ski boot, and explain why it is important for your comfort and on hill performance. By comparing different models with in your performance category, your fitter can coach you toward the best option for your body shape and biomechanics.
