Ski Haus Boot Fit Information


How Should My Boots Fit?

This question is asked by each and every skier at one time or another. The answer is easy... It all depends on how aggressively you are skiing. However, as a general rule they should feel like a firm hand shake. Keep in mind you are using your boots as an extension of your foot. They are controlling your skis. They need to be snug. Depending on the aggressiveness of your skiing, your ski boots are going to  stretch out a half to one full size in length. How is this possible? Plastic does not stretch you say. You are right, it will not, but the liners inside will. You see, the liners in most ski boots are make of a memory foam. Think of it like the foam under your rug. Just as a couch leaves impressions in the rug, your foot will leave an impression in the liners of your boots.
What should I feel when I put my foot into a boot?

First thing, take those cotton socks off and put on a ski specific sock. Cotton is the worst thing you can do to yourself inside a ski boot. Keep in mind people call cotton socks "sweat socks" for a reason. As soon as cotton gets damp, it loses all insulating properties. A ski sock will have a blend of wool and either silk, Thermax, Thermore, nylon or all the above. These materials wick moisture away from your feet. These materials also slide into the boot much easier. This will keep your toes from feeling stuffed into the boot as well. Wool will stay warm if it gets wet. A ski sock should also be very thin. A thick sock will cause movement inside the boot. Remember a ski sock is made from materials designed to keep you warm...

Thicker is not always better.

Initially, when you put your foot into a ski boot, your toes will come right to the front of the boot. Be patient, stay seated and buckle the boot from THE TOP DOWN. Leave any forefoot adjustments loose. Now stand up and flex the boot by pushing your knee and shin forward into the tongue of the boot. This will push your heel into the pocket and pull your toes off the front of the boot. Stand in a neutral position; your knees slightly bent, resting on your shins lightly against the tongue of the boot. Your toes should brush the front of the boot. You should be able to wiggle them some.. not as much as in your summer sandals though, but they should be able to move. This space will also open up more with time. Now flex the boot. Your toes should now pull off the front of the boot a bit (for the aggressive skier, your toes will still graze the front of the boot). Keep in mind the boot will stretch one half to one whole size.
They feel like the right length but what should the rest of the boot feel like?

The key here is the boot needs to be snug. However, no matter how tight it is, you will be able to lift you heel some. When you flex your boots your heel should remain down in the heel pocket. The front of your foot should not be able to move side to side into the boot. Remember, you are going to be strapping a ski on your foot. They should be snug, not excessively tight. A quarter inch of movement inside the boot translates to several inches of movement at the tip and tail of the ski. The boot should not feel as if it is shutting off the blood flow to your toes. Any pinching of your feet should be avoided. If this happens in any boot, ask any SKI HAUS sales associate for some custom fitting advise. As with any item of footwear, a short period of break-in should be expected. Please refer to the SKI HAUS Boot Fit Guarantee for helpful hints. If you currently own a pair of boots which hurt, do not loose hope. Several custom alterations can be done to improve your fit.

Ski Haus Junior Program

Ski Haus Offers FREE Season Pass To Bretton Woods with EVERY Junior Package!*

Ski Haus realizes that kids do a funny thing that characterizes them as kids... They grow. Here at the Haus we also know that to pay full price year in and out for kids is crazy. So here at Ski Haus, we offer a Jr. Trade Program which families have been taking advantage of for over 2 decades. Here's how it works.

Buy New Junior equipment at its SALE price between October and January and Ski Haus will give you a 50% trade in the following year up to $125 for skis and $75 for boots. We'll still give you 1/3 back up until 12/31 if you want to wait. If you get two years out of anything (kids usually do get two years out of their skis) we'll give you up to 25% 2 years later. All we ask is you bring your receipt and come in before Thanksgiving of that following year.

Here's an example: Today I spend $280 for Susieís new equipment (yes, you can buy a new complete jr. shaped ski package with boots for only 280 bucks), and I come in next year before Thanksgiving (of 2013) with my receipt and I get a $140 credit towards new stuff. It's that easy.

We can even suggest other great ways for kids to save...

For instance, you can buy a used kids ski package for around $100. Add boots for around $50, you get everything you need but a lift ticket, all adjusted and tuned for around $150

Thatís $150 and you own it. Ready to go! 

And if you can find a way to write your kids skis off, we even offer a Lease. From $110/year youíll get skis, boots and bindings...Pick them up now and ski them all year. Return them by 4/15/14 and they don't clutter up your basement for the summer.  (Please call for availability)

Confused yet? Maybe thisíll help

Buy new and trade in and pay about $140/year, $90 if you keep them 2 years. Lease used and pay as little as $110/year.

Whatever works for you, who better to understand your family than ours?

*  Free junior season pass to Bretton Woods with every junior package purchase or lease during the 2013-2014 ski season.  Junior pass valid for children 5-12 years old, non transferable.
