Essentials & More

Get the Basics Down — Then Kick it Up a Notch!

The Associates Plus course is ideal for attendees who want to develop insole fabrication and grinding skills, better liner and shell modification skills, and snowboard-specific snowboard bootfitting techniques but aren’t quite ready for the Master’s curriculum.

Associates Plus also gives those attendees who need to “wait for their ride” to finish day two of a Master’s Course the opportunity to put their time to productive use.

Masters Plus

The Dark Arts

Taking Your Expertise to the Pinnacle!

For highly experienced bootfitting pros who have already taken the Masters workshop, this hands-on immersion workshop focuses on technical bootfitting issues. The Masters Plus curriculum mirrors that of the Masters course on day one but at a level of discussion and understanding that presumes a high degree of experience with the subject matter.

The Masters Plus agenda is loose enough to follow trajectories of interest to the group but still maintains a focus on hands-on learning with a crisp pace. Masters Plus provides experienced Master bootfitters with the latest methods for executing successful bootfitting plans.

Registration open to only prior Masters graduates and those with extensive snowsports boot tech experience.
