AlsoKnownAsSeems like way to much hassle honestly. I'm probably only going out for a few runs here and there.
Maybe some of my friends at shops could help me out.
I was honestly going to try to get properly back into it. But after I got hurt last year, I'm scared to fall. And I'm far more likely to fall on skis at this point. Probably not going out a ton.
I already have skis and bindings but boots are are like 10 times what I spent on those.
onenerdykidIt just depends on if you want to enjoy those few times you go out, or not. A properly fit boot isn't just for pro skiers. It means you have the right fit for your needs (which in this case is not a lot) and you will maximize the chances of having fun for those few times you go out.
The average skier in North America only skis about 4-5 days per year, and boot-fitting plays a huge role in keeping happy so it can help you too.
AlsoKnownAsHow much does the boot fitting deal cost on average?
I guess my feet aren't going to change in size so I could use them for years. I just hate the though of spending 600+ for boots when I paid $32 for skis and bindings.
onenerdykidNormally, the cost associated with fitting a boot is free/very cheap when you buy the boot from the shop. It is typically one of the services they provide in order to keep you from buying online. Every shop has their own specific policy, but they typically have one.
