Members of our family are avid skiiers. This year we are hosting a 16 year old girl from Norway. She skis both alpine and cross country and will be joining us most weekends for skiing. As we have done for previous exchange students, we will be paying for a seasonal ski equipment rental package. But I have a few concerns.
Our exchange daughter is both pigeon toed and knock kneed. Having been a ski instructor in the past I suspect this will have a significant impact on her skiing. To be honest, I haven't worked with somebody who's legs and feet are so misaligned before. I'm wondering what can be done with rental gear to mitigate these alignment issues. Does it make any sense to purchase a pair of boots at a ski swap just so the boots could be modified to correct alignment issues? Does the same apply to the skiis?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
