We combine the latest technology with over 34 years experience to provide you with a first class custom ski boot fitting service.
Ski boot fitting is by appointment and takes a minimum of 90 mins for analysis, footbeds (if required), fitting and heat moulding.
Fitting ski boots for over34 years and involved in taking groups of adults and school students for longer, taking them down to the hire shop in busy periods with shop staff giving you pair for you to try on not knowing if they are right for you or not! they some times are wet inside or to big, this is a question we hear -" should we rent or buy ski boots?"
The right fitting ski boots are vital: for controlling your skis properly and to get the feel and feedback to progress your ability.
Ski boots have come a long way with custom moulded shells and liners, plus with a custom made foot bed it will improve comfort and performance.
Cost can be a major factor however if you can buy a quality pair of fitted ski boots, for the same price as to rent boots for a few weeks. They can last for years if they are looked after this means to ensure they are done up correctly at the end of the day and holiday.
To have your own boots and/or skis can cost a bit more if you fly but less hassle when you reach your resort whatever time you arrive then there is no queuing to collect your equipment, you will know that your boots are dry and your skis are waxed ready to start your holiday the next day.
Here at SnowSun's Boot Lounge with the equipment we have, we can alter the shell shape to fit your feet perfectly as no two feet are the same, shape and size.
Appointments available Tuesday to Fridays including evenings.

Skiing places great forces on our feet which can cause discomfort it also removes the enjoyment of the sport and that can often results in the shortening of the day. Foot beds prevent this.
Modern boots now come with heated shells and liner, but sometimes they need a little help!
From wide feet to spurs to oversized ankle bones, we can modify your boot to make it as comfortable as possible.
We have recently designed a tool which can reach in to the toe box, this means we can now stretch the boot without deforming the top shell.
Under-canted boots are the norm and there is a night and day difference between skiing in correctly aligned boots and struggling with under-canting. Unless you check and correct your alignment you will never ski fluently. You may be completely unaware of the problem and only one in a million instructors or boot-fitters will recognise or correct the problem you have with your boots.
Improve comfort and optimise your performance by using injected liners. This technology consists of injecting PU foam into your ski boot liners.
By carrying out this operation directly on your foot, the liner obtains a 100% customised shape of your foot. The injected liners reduce fatigue and injury risks of slips and falls.
