Boot Rooms can be a confusing place and it is hard to know what the rules are. To help you here is our guide to using a boot room and not making a fool of yourself.
- Always put your skis back in the same slot. This is super helpful if you have identical hire skis.
- Keep a pair of indoor shows in the boot room. At the end of the day the floor can get a bit wet and enjoying your afternoon tea cake is no fun if your socks are wet.
- Make space. if you are dressed and have all your kit on make a move outside if possible.
- Don’t leave your coats in the boot room hang them up in the cloakroom.
- If trays are provided for your equipment then pop them in. It will keep the floor dryer and help with number 2.
- Make sure you take advantage of the boot warmer and if you are staying in a chalet without a diligent host then make sure you turn it on to avoid the disappointment in the morning.
- The boot warmer is for boots, not gloves.
- Leave your poles with your skis. There is nothing worse than getting to the top of the hill with a childs set of sticks.
- Before entering the boot room check you have your ski pass. Scenario one is you have to take your boots of an go back in for it, scenario two means making your freinds wait at the bottom of the lift as you go back to the chalet, take off your boots and get it.
- Don’t sleep in the boot room if you can’t remember the code to get in, it is the coldest place in the chalet.
