Adjusting binding ramp angle for foot issues

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My feet are a bit of a mess, wide forefoot due to bunions, narrow heels, hammer toes leading to a neuroma that I am able to manage with smart footwear choices. At the beginning of the season I went to a boot fitter (John Oshima for those in the SF bay area) and he did work to fit my ever growing bunion. My boots feel great when I ski my early season skis but when I move over to my regular skis, my right foot (which is a half size smaller) tends to slide forward and my hammer toes get jammed.

John suggested checking the ramp angle on the bindings and indeed there is a difference between the two ski/binding combinations. The skis where my toes get jammed have an extra 3mm different between front and back. These are Blizzard skis with the IQ Max slider plate. I have Rossi Axium 110 bindings mounted. Is there any adjustment that I can do with the slider plate to accommodate the difference in ramp angle or is the only solution to remount and add a shim to the front?

You can put a shim under the axium binding toe, no problem. You will need slightly longer screws, but otherwise, simple.
