Boot & Helmet Fitting Guidelines


Boots must be comfortable (no pain).

  • Not too loose (don’t want foot to slide around)
  • Not too tight (don’t want circulation hindered)

Toes near the front of boot.

  • Not stuck, curled or mashed against the front

Buckle boot, stand up and bend knees forward.

  • Shins pushed against front of boot
  • Heel should remain in place
  • Foot must remain secure inside boot

Boreal Mountain Resort offers several styles of boots for wide, narrow and athletic feet/calves.


Helmet should be snug and comfortable.

  • Not to tight (should not be headache inducing)
  • Not to loose (should not move when moving your head)

Align the front rim of your helmet just above your eyebrows.

  • Back of your helmet should not touch the nape of the neck

Buckle Helmet.

  • Roll head back making sure helmet does not roll back
  • Move head left and right, holding helmet. You should not be able to move your head inside while holding the helmet.
