Boots Boots Boots, Snowboard Boots Fit

Boots can make or break your day. Yes - they are that important!

This week I am talking all about the snowboard boot fit. Being a long time snowboarder, and spending I am sure 10’s of 1000’s of hours in snowboard boots –I absolutely have some experience and knowledge that I would like to pass onto you! 

So, if you are looking to buy or get fitted to rent snowboard boots, what should you look out for?
First of all, start with the size of your gym shoe. Try that size boot on and see how it feels. Now please just wear one sock, preferably a thinner merino wool one. Although you might think...

The Ultimate Day off Activities for the Wanaka Adventure

Skiing and snowboarding is hands down the BEST thing to do during the winter in Wanaka! (Yes of course I am a little biased!). But reality says… most people's legs just can’t ski or snowboard for 4, 5 or more days straight. Unless of course you have thighs of steel! That means for the majority of us, somewhere in your ski holiday you are going to have a day or two off the snow. So, what to do with that day off you ask?
