But most importantly, we will help you adjust your stance. Stance balancing is very crucial. It doesn't only affect your target muscles but it will even help you perform like a pro! We will spend extra time on boot fitting and stance alignment even in your existing boots. We're so happy to be able to provide that to all our racers!
WE LOVE OUR RACERS!
In the following paragraph, Brent Amsbury, Pedorthist and Master Boot fitter, explains well the importance of Stance Alignment.
Every skier, regardless of ability, needs stance balancing. It is also referred to as boot balancing, but in reality the boot is merely an appliance we voluntarily put on our feet to support the mechanical requirement of skiing on a pair of skis.
Many of us believe that the ski boot comes "ready to ski" out of a box, and that the manufacturer has taken all parameters into consideration. Though ski boot manufacturers have made immense strides in the last two decades, they cannot, and will not individualize ski boots. They must build them to accept a broad enough range of body types so as to be profitable in the market place.
Thus, stance balancing is the only true way to individualize a ski boot for each skier.
Stance balancing is essentially a process of aligning the lower and upper portion of the ski boot shell to "unlock" the skeletal and muscular potential of each skier.
If a ski boot forces your body to constantly use primary and secondary muscles to stay in balance, then the body cannot focus on essential tasks required to achieve a carved turn.
Once a skier has achieved a balanced stance in their boot, muscle groups are then in a relaxed state until that skier asks them to move.
If a coach or instructor asks you to move forward, or to angulate more, the body can only achieve this when the skier has the ability to do so from a balanced position over their skis.
Will stance balancing solve all ski technique issues? Certainly not. But for a great majority of skiers, a substantial amount of progress is available to them as soon as the stance balancing issue becomes resolved.
Other factors such as overall strength, cardiovascular fitness, and general athleticism will continue to take a significant role in continued progress of a skiers quest to improve their ability, but that initial ascension required to move out of a skiing ability rut or plateau starts with the foundation of better balance.
