Transform your ski break with a mindful boot fitting
Skiing (and in particular) ski resorts, are changing. No longer simply destinations for thrill-seekers hunting for the best lines, hidden couloirs or powder fields, there has been an explosion of spas offering a multitude of relaxation treatments, all espousing the benefits to body and mind of crisp, cool mountain air.
But, if you do head slopeside and fancy getting your ski legs on, you might want to consider borrowing a little of the mindfulness these spas promote when it comes to buying your own ski or snowboard boots.
One of the most popular gripes you’ll hear from snowsports enthusiasts concerns boot pain, which could quite easily put a dampner on your holiday. And it’s for this reason Snow + Rock is now providing custom boot fitting in all of its 25 UK stores.
It is putting all of its 30 years of experience into finding you the right boot, using a six-step process which includes foot analysis and an assessment of your mountain competency and style, to ensure the one thing you won’t have to think about is your feet.
Like most things done properly, this process takes time, so you’ll want to allow at least two hours for the knowledgabe and friendly staff to create the right solution for you. And if you’re worried about paying to buy boots rather than hiring because they might still hurt, S+R offers a comfort guarantee, which states if you are still having issues after 14 days’ use, S+R will re-fit them free of charge or, if the issue persists (and you’ve given them the chace to fix it and they can’t), provide a credit note for the boots, less a 35 per cent useage fee.
Want to stay mindful while you’re in resort? Make sure you take this advice, and visit the expert fitters at Snow + Rock, who’ll help you make more of the mountains.
