1/ PUTTING ON SKIS
1. Choose a flat location, close to the piste or the chairlift / ski tht you are about to take.Getting around on skis when it's flat is neither practical nor quick: easier to do it on foot, skis on your shoulder!
2. Place your skis on the ground, parrallel to each other. Check that the bindings are fully open - the rear part must be lowered - and that they do not have any snow or ice on them.
3. Check under your boots: the soles must be clean, with no accumulation of snow or ice which would prevent the binding from closing on to the boot.
Use one of your ski poles to tap the soles of your boots to dislodge the snow.
4. Place the front of your boot fully into the binding, check that your heel is in the center, then press your heel sharply down on to the back part of the binding in order to raise the release pedal and wedge your boot in.Lift your foot up with your ski a few centimeters, shaking it lightly to check that the binding is properly engaged.
Renew the operation with the second foot!
