Our partners, New Generation, have produced a series of how-to videos for first-time skiers. They have 20 years’ experience in helping people develop their technique, build confidence, and have fun on the slopes.

Putting on a pair of ski boots may seem like an easy task, however, it is important to get right as a snug-fitting ski boot will provide you with much-needed comfort and control throughout your time on the slopes. These 3 easy steps will ensure putting your ski boots on is as painless as possible.

How To Put on Ski Boots in 3 Easy Steps

  • Step 1: Make sure that all the buckles on your boots are undone - this will make it easier to get your foot in. Once done, pull the tongue to one side and stand up, twisting your foot into the boot.
  • Step 2: To close the boot, start with the buckle at the top and work your way down. Flex into the boot so your heel is brought into the cup of the boot and proceed to tighten the rest of the buckles.
  • Step 3: Adjust the velcro strap until it provides a snug fit and pull the elastic of your trousers over the boot - this helps to keep the snow out.

With your ski boots now on, you're one step closer to grabbing your skis and heading down the slopes. If you would like any more information on first-time skiing, check out New Generation's Learn to ski page.
