Glide and Slide has a reputation for offering the best ski boot fitting service in Yorkshire, and stocks the largest range of ski boots in the country. We are the only UK supplier of Strolz made-to-measure Ski Boots from Austria so we can fit ski boots for the most unusual feet.

The Eiger Suite in our Otley shop is where you will find our luxury ski clothing from La Croix, Goldbergh and Mountain Force, for those who want to look good on the slopes without compromising on quality and technicality. 
 
If you dream of cruising the blue runs,  throwing down 1080's in the park or blasting through powder on your own set of skis, we can advise on the best type and sizing for you. Our service department will keep your equipment in top condition, offering waxing, edging and repair services.
 
Our long running SchoolPlus department helps make children's ski holidays with school that little bit easier for parents, children and teachers alike. We offer clothing hire and sales for schools running ski trips. Visit our SchoolPlus page for more information on this service.
