Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Ski Bindings

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We have inherited a pair of skis from a relie who can no longer ski. They are the right length for my teenage son, who is becoming reasonably competent and skiing blacks and off piste relatively comfortably (certainly better than his old Mum). I'm not an equipment expert and we've normally just hired skis before. The bindings are screwed on to the ski or seem to be. How feasible/ advisable is it to have the local ski shop move the bindings? I've been told that they are fairly good quality skis. Any advice appreciated.

@Scarymamma, welcome to snowheads

As long as the ski bindings are not too old, a ski shop should be able to remove the bindings, plug the old holes and re-drill the ski to suit,(if they have the correct jig to suit that binding) but you will need to supply the shop with your sons boots so they can set the jig to to the correct boot length. (rental bindings on hire skis can be adjusted to suit different boot lengths). Also will need to tell them your sons weight and ability so they can set the release value of the bindings, same as you would have told the hire shop. They will charge you for this, some big box shops eg. snow and rock, ellis brigham, it can be as much as £40 to £50.

I would take them in to see first.
