Time:  1 hr - 1.5 hrs

What to expect: Your boots will be fit by one of our highly trained boot fitters, who will conduct a basic biomechanical assessment and will spend time with you to understand your skiing ability, physical condition, and your skiing aspirationsBased on this information, your technician will then present you with two to three of the most appropriate boots for you to try on and will talk you through your options. Once you’ve selected your boot, your technician will perform a basic liner mould to help shape it to the contours of your ankle and calf.  They will then use a moulding machine to craft you a pair of custom footbeds. As part of our Full Fit Guarantee, any other boot modifications required, either at the initial sitting or up to two seasons (the current season and the next), are included in the price.
