I purchased my daughters first skis and got the bindings on, no problem. Now I need to adjust the bindings. My question - what is the cheapest and best method of doing this?
I can take them to a ski shop and have them adjust them for $20 or $30. Seems like a bit of overkill for a 5 year old. yet I don't want her breaking her leg skiing, etc.
How would they get adjusted if we rented skis? When my wife rented skis, they simply looked up her DIN value from a chart and adjusted the bindings accordingly. No test to see the skis released when they should. I could have done that just as easily.
Growing up my dad always did a release test: He set the bindings to what he thought they should be and then had us try to release out of the bindings while he stood on the skis. Crude but seemed to work.
Anyways, wondering what the best method is today for a little kid.
