Recommended Equipment & Rentals
For this course we recommend metal edged skis with 3-pin/cable bindings. Leashes are required, and plastic telemark boots are highly recommended. Equipment such as the Madshus Epoch, mounted with Voile 3-Pin Cable Bindings, and Scarpa T4 boots would work well. It is possible to get by with lighter equipment. However, if you are just starting to learn, more supportive gear will be easier to handle.
Bolton Course Requirements: For our courses at Bolton metal edged skis and 3-pin boots and bindings are required. We recommend a light plastic boot, but lighter synthetic or leather 3-pin boots are also acceptable. Students should be comfortable on intermediate level terrain. Leashes Are Required.
