Behind the Scenes: A SCARPA Ski Boot is Born

Dec. 9th 2014

Over the last 35 years, SCARPA has contributed immensely to the development of alpine touring equipment. In that time, SCARPA has designed boots that meet the needs of skiers heading into the snowy mountains with their eye on untracked powder.


SCARPA’s alpine touring boots are designed for skiers, by skiers. It all began with the production of leather boots in the 1980s, followed by the arrival of plastic boots that changed the game of ski touring. With years of experience in the design and manufacturing of ski boots, the R&D team pays close attention to detail, while seeking input from World Champion athletes, alpine guides, ski instructors and mountain rescue operators (to name a few).
