What are ski touring boots? -

In this video, Janine Winter, Ski Manager at Profeet, tackles the question ‘What are ski touring boots?

Ski touring boots are designed for somebody predominantly skiing in the backcountry, who wants to save weight for the uphill.

What makes ski touring boots different…
Ski touring boots are made from lighter weight plastics and have a smaller cuff so making the uphills that much easier.

The key features of a ski touring boot are:
– a walk mode on the back of the boot, allowing a bigger range of motion when activated
– a thick rubber sole, making climbing over rocks easier (NB this means it requires a touring-specific binding)
– inserts on the toes that allow it to step into a binding

There are a variety of ski touring boots available – some are lighter, some put more emphasis on performance.
