Few professional skiers would ski without custom footbeds, extensive boot fitting, and a boot-and-binding setup that puts them in proper alignment. Tweaking their gear lets them perform at peak levels. You can now do the same more easily than ever, thanks to resort-based venues that provide expert consultation, allow "test drives," and give you immediate feedback on form. It's guaranteed to up your skiing -- and likely your comfort -- at least a notch.
