The duration of ski boot season leases are from pick up until April 1st. This season ski package lease includes boots and a complimentary binding adjustment on approved ski bindings. Leased equipment may vary from image shown as we carry a variety of brands and models to better meet the needs of our customers.
Type I Skier
A type 1 skier prefers skiing cautiously and at slower speeds. This skier is most comfortable on smooth slopes of gentle to moderate pitch. As a type 1 skier you prefer lower than average release/retention settings so in the case of a fall your bindings are more likely to release. A type 1 skier is an entry level skier uncertain about their classification.
Type II Skier
A type 2 skier prefers a variety of speeds. A type 2 skier will ski on varied terrains and explores different parts of the mountain. If a skier cannot decide that they are a 1 or 3 they are a 2. A type 2 Skier prefers average release/retention settings appropriate for most recreational skiing.
Type III Skier
A type 3 skier prefers faster speeds. A type 3 skier likes going fast and skis aggressive on slopes of moderate to steep pitch. Type 3 skiers prefer higher than average release/retention settings. As a type 3 skier they prefer decreased releasability in a fall in order to gain a decreased risk of inadvertent binding release.
Some skiers from experience have been dissatisfied with the release/retention settings from their normal skier classification. If you have a special concern you may wish to select a lower or higher skier classification. These skiers may wish to select lower or higher skier classifications or select skier type designations that are different for twist and forward lean. Mention any dissatisfaction to your binding technician.
