On October 1,2008 Bill Thistle, ski boot fitter and guest speaker, visited the club to discuss issues related to boot fitting.

The following are some pointers Diane Bogert received via email correspondence with Bill Thistle:

Here are some of the points and thoughts that underlie the talk given at the ski club meeting Wednesday night.

It’s not your fault!

If you turn better one way than the other . . . It’s not your fault!

If you have a ‘bad’ habit you can’t correct . . . It’s not your fault!

The plastic ski boot determines your stance, your balance and your control.

If the interaction of your ski boot and your leg shape create a balanced stance then skiing is easier and you are in better control.

If the interaction of your ski boot and your leg shape create an unbalanced stance then skiing is more difficult and you have a lack of control.

If you have not had your boots adjusted to compensate for your personal leg shape then your ski technique will be limited by your need to compensate for misalignment caused by the boots.

I am glad that you now have an understanding of how alignment can affect your skiing. You are a most fortunate group of skiers!

That understanding gives you a choice, do you continue to blame yourself and struggle to improve, as you have in the past or do you fault your equipment and have it adjusted to you and create better balance.

Most skiers have not had the opportunity to learn about how alignment affects their skiing giving them no choice but to continue to blame themselves in their struggle to improve.

It is unfortunate that the ski industry fails to understand these things. These are the major reasons contributing to the fact that less than 15% of those that actually go through the effort to get on snow and try skiing become skiers.

It is my hope and my goal that in time, with the help of skiers like you that, the ski industry will come to the realization that alignment matters and then see to it that everyone that makes the effort to try skiing does it well aligned, in balance and with control. We must give everyone a chance to enjoy the wonderful sport of skiing.
