el_kyleIt's ideal to look at the foot initially with the skier/rider sitting down in an unweighted position, and then standing up in a weighted position. This reveals how the foot functions biomechanically and how to go about accommodating for underfoot support if needed for the specific situation. Sometimes there will be a significant change in arch height, length width, etc. in an unweighted vs. weighted position, and for some individuals there won't be much change at all.
