Custom Foot Assessment

When you come to your appointment, be sure to bring your favorite pair of ski socks. We suggest bringing your thinnest pair. The type of sock you wear is extremely important to how your boot will fit. Our expert boot fitters will ask you a series of questions to get an idea of the type of skier you are and want to be. This will determine what kind of fit your boot should have.

Try On Different Options

Based on what fit you need, we'll select a variety of different boot options for you to try. We will try to accommodate color and brand preferences, but sometimes the best boot for you might not be the most appealing on the shelf. But remember, the better the fit, the better you will feel on the mountain!

Foot Molding

Once you have your boot picked out, our experts will heat the foot-bed and you will wear your boots around the store for about 15 minutes so it forms to YOUR feet. We will also walk you through how to properly buckle and store your new boots.

TIPS FOR INCREASING COMFORT AND EXTENDING THE LIFE OF YOUR BOOT

On the way 

Keep your boots warm on the way to the mountain. Don't wear the socks you are going to ski in. Your feet will probably sweat on the drive.

On the mountain

Nothing should go inside your boot except for your sock. To avoid pressure points, make sure all under layers and snow pants are not tucked inside the boot.

Storage

Take your liners out of the boot after a day on the mountain to allow them to dry.Store your boots buckled, in a temperate climate.

frequently asked questions

Do I need to have an appointment?
No. Expert boot fittings are available by walk-in or by appointment. Wait times without an appointment can be unpredictable and are based on appointment volume.  Walk-ins will be put in a queue and assisted on a first come, first serve basis after honoring appointments at their scheduled time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
How long will my boot fitting take?
The average appointment takes about an hour.
What are the three types of boot fit?
There are 3 types of fit: comfort, performance, and high performance. 

1. Comfort fit: Boots with a comfort fit have a soft flex which will provide you with more shock absorption giving you a smoother ride on the mountain. Comfort fitting boots are best for those who spend most of their day on groomed green and blue runs. With comfort fit boots you do give up some control which may make it harder to control your gear on more difficult terrain. 

2. Performance fit: Boots are more secure which will give you more precise control on the mountain. A stiffer flex will deliver increased responsiveness allowing for more control in turn carving and higher speeds. 

3.  High performance fit: High performance fitting boots are designed for those who tackle the steepest and most challenging terrain. The stiff flex of the boot allows for precise control allowing advanced skiers to increase their speed and aggressiveness on the mountain.

Most people will either be fitted for a comfort or performance fit, but as you become more advanced you may want to consider a more aggressive fitting boot.  
What should I bring to my appointment?
When you come to your appointment, be sure to bring your favorite pair of ski socks. We suggest bringing the thinnest pair you have. The type of sock you wear is extremely important to how your boot will fit. 
How much does this cost?
Expert boot fitting is free.
