#1 Rely on Established Ski Rental Companies
Typically these companies have the best trained employees and are committed to ensuring your ski rental equipment is top notch. That means if you are unsatisfied with the comfort or performance of your boots, they'll have the knowledge and service to find the right boots for your feet.
#2 Ski Socks are Critical
Proper socks are a critical element of your foot's comfort in a ski boot. Wear a thin, synthetic sock. Cotton socks aren't appropriate on the ski slopes as they do not wick moisture and tend to bunch in your boot. Many companies now make a ski specific sock.
#3 Orthotics Might Help
#4 Too Big or Too Small – How about just Right
Too big is just as big of a problem as too small! Find a balance between comfort and performance by taking your time when trying on ski rental boots. Even if you already know your street shoe size, take the time to let a ski professional measure your feet. If you are uncertain as to which size boot is appropriate for you, try using a shell fit test.
#5 Shop When Nobody is Around
To get the best service and reduce the pressure of making a quick decision, try on your ski rental boots during off peak hours. Stop by one of our Aspen or Snowmass ski rental shops in the evening and reduce the early morning rush to hit the slopes.
