IF YOU OR YOUR RACER NEED RACE GEAR YOU NEED TO COME TO STURTEVANT’S ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 7, 2018. – THIS IS THE ONLY TIME THAT STURTEVANT’S OFFERS RACE SPECIFIC PRICING FOR RACE SPECIFIC PRODUCTS.
Yes, Sturtevant’s will stock some race skis, boots, bindings and accessories during the winter, but these items will not carry the same discount that is offered on Oct. 7.
Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to bring your family to Sturtevant’s. We would like to take this opportunity to re-iterate that the focus of Race day should be selecting the right product for the racers, so we can place the orders with the manufacturers. We honor the published racer sales prices from each of our vendors – on race specific products – plus the appropriate shipping charges.
**** IMPORTANT**** All racers U14 and older (including Masters), must have a FIS approved (with FIS STICKER) for GS, Super-G and Downhill. Helmets used for Slalom do NOT have to be FIS approved.
- Junior Racers – Must be a registered USSA member and belong to a local race team.
- College Racers will be held to Junior USSA requirements to qualify – Or verification from Coach
- Masters must have proof of participation in an organized Race club for ’18-’19. (This can be a letter from the club’s Head Coach or President or USSA card for this year).
- Mitey Mites – Must be registered with a local race team for the 2018-19 season.
These things are important, please read:
All racers should be aware of the minimum length and Radius requirements for their specific age classification. Also, be aware that there are USSA standards, and FIS standards. – If you are unclear of your requirements, please ask a coach or rep for clarification before ordering. – we will have this information on-site on Oct. 7
A potential challenge for the young racers – We have had several situations at race day when clients have bought skis/bindings and boots that are not compatible. Essentially all boots size 21.5 and under are Jr boot soles and thus require a Junior binding. Most boots over 22 are adult soles. The 21.5 – 23.5 are the unpredictable ones. Please make sure you verify with staff or Reps that you have an appropriate binding if your boots fall into this range (21-23.5) as you could need either a junior or adult binding.
Many kids at fit day buy boots too big because they feel good. Make sure the rep/staff is shell sizing your athlete and that there is no more than ¾ inch between the heel and the back of the shell when the toes are touching the front of the shell (1/2” or less for U16 and older). Do not buy boots that your kid is going to “grow into”, that does not work well for the racer. We can make boots bigger but cannot make them smaller effectively. You have a lot invested in this sport, and boots are absolutely critical to the athlete’s success. This is not the place to cut corners. The appropriate flex is also very important.
Custom Footbeds and boot fitting
We have an outstanding boot fitting staff. Once your new boots arrive, please come into our store and speak with our fit center staff to get custom footbeds and final fitting done. (425) 869-7669. Properly fit boots with the proper alignment is VERY important.
Thanks for coming and think snow!

ORDERS –Orders typically take 3 – 4 weeks to arrive, sometimes longer. Almost all manufacturers ship from the East Coast so it takes 7 – 10 days just for shipping. Sturtevant’s will notify you as your products arrive (yes, if you order more than one item we will call you each time something new arrives). We realize this may seem redundant, but it is the best way for us to make sure you know exactly what has or has not arrived. So, PLEASE REMEMBER, when we call this does not mean that ALL of your orders have arrived.
If you have not heard from Sturtevant’s, regarding an order, by November 1st please contact Larry Detris so he can double check on your order. When we place initial orders, we try to find out ship dates. If we anticipate a particularly late delivery, we will contact you to determine what will work best for you – waiting or ordering something different. (425) 498-8700, or email Tracyg@sturtevants.com
