If you're planning on learning how to ski, then knowing how to put your ski boots on is a great start!

Whether you're heading to your local dry slope, indoor snow slope or the mountains a comfortable, well fitted pair of ski boots will make your experience much better.

Watch The Snow Centre's video on how to fit your ski boots before you hit the slopes.

All ski boots are slightly different, but there are a few things that are always the same;

  1. Unlike normal shoes, your toes CAN touch the end of the ski boot! When you begin skiing, having your weight forward will bring your foot back inside the boot.
  2. Your ski boot should be tightly fastened, so that you can't twist your ankle or foot around inside the boot, but not so tight that it's painful.
  3. It's always a good idea to pull your trousers down over your ski boot to stop snow getting in the top and making your socks wet and feet cold.
