Ask any veteran skier if their ski boots are important, or if they affect their skiing, I would not be surprised if most said “yeah, of course.” As someone who has spent my entire life on skis and the last few decades helping people ski better, I’m here to make sure you understand just how important your boots are to your ski day.
Based on this idea, I repeatedly tell customers, your boots are 10 times more important than your skis. This also applies to cross country skiing and snowboarding. Our goal is to get you in the right gear the first time around.
What do you do when your downhill ski boot is giving you pain or discomfort? Did you know that the our Downhill Boot Fit Experts not only fit new boots, but can make adjustments to any downhill ski boot?
When a customer comes into Skirack with an existing downhill ski boot, the first questions we ask are: what's going on, what are the problems, and what can we solve? Based on their answers, we assess the foot and the boot to confirm compatibility. We can then advise if a new boot is needed or make modifications to the existing boot to address their issue.

When a new customer comes in for a downhill ski boot, we assess the foot as well as the skier and take a multi-point measurement of their foot. We then select 1 or 2 pairs of boots that should fit their feet pretty well and after the skier tries them on, we will determine what exact pair they should be skiing in that year.
"You don't need to try on 15, 16, 20 different pairs of ski boots to find the perfect fit - you just need to find someone to assess your foot, assess you as a skier, and knows the current boots who can put those pieces together very easily." Doug Stewart, Skirack Downhill Ski Boot Fitter.
