Ski boots repairs: August is the time to get things dialed for powder skiing

Aug. 14th 2012

You don’t ever want to find out at the base of the first rock pitch that your rope has a core shot in it. And the same way you inspect your climbing gear before you head into the mountains, the warm months are the ideal time to make sure your ski boots are in tip-top shape to take you all the way through the winter.

At SCARPA, we pride ourselves on building footwear rugged enough for the world’s most extreme places, but anything that gets put through the ringer in extreme environments (and especially footwear like ski-touring boots with moving parts) wears over time. You don’t want to find out the rivet on your cuff had one too many miles on it eight miles into the backcountry.
