Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

On the locking issue, she was particularly concerned that if she was off piste the effort required to put the skis back on would be alomost impossible as stamping hard is not an option. We in fact experimented several times to try and find an effective technique on the edge of the piste.

At the same time as you push down, use your hand to lift the heel piece. Check to that the heel of the boot has gone in far enough, if not, open and do it again. I normally give it a stomp just to make sure.

@garystarling, just remember the "locking issue" has nothing to do with the DIN setting.

Dig the tails of the skis into snow at 45 deg then step in. The tail gives the necessary extra resistance.

Get your wife a set of Look TT's (Pivots), Pivot 12's and be done with it, period. Easiest to get into and out of, highest elasticity, unparalleled lateral twist/release. And in real powder, the easiest to tie a chord (surveyor's tape from), as well, easiest to get into, again.

ps: Given the unparalleled elasticity Look TT's offer, you/she can claim she is a Type ! and be secure in knowing that lowest register DIN will be more than sufficient.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Yep, that’s what we worked on plus digging the tails into the snow. She wanted to practice in a controlled manner rather than panic if she was well off-piste and in an area with potential exposure to an avalanche.
