Our process

Before starting a fit, we want to listen and hear what your needs and goals are. We will then help you choose the best solution to meet your needs.

step 1: pick a boot

feet are like snowflakes; each one is unique. all boots are shaped differently, and cater to various types of feet (low/high volume, low/high arches, etc.). after a few quick measurements and questions, we will quickly determine which boot best matches your unique foot shape, skiing style, and ability.

step 2: build a footbed

the footbed is the most crucial piece to a boot. it is your foundation, and will provide balance, support, and comfort. We will caste a fully custom footbed that is a mirror image of your foot. this will splay pressure equally across your entire foot. Each footbed will be hand ground and crafted to fit your ski boot.

step 3: canting

we want the knee to track directly over the center of the ski, but that is often not the case. by canting, we can measure where the center of your knee mass is traveling (outward, inward, etc.), and correct it by shimming or planning the sole of your ski boot at a specific angle to achieve improved turns and symmetry.

if you have existing boots that you purchased from another shop, we are still more than happy to help you out. however, if you would like a professional fit, improved performance, and unparalleled comfort, we recommend starting the process from scratch. 

other services

  • stance alignment 

    • this helps create symmetry from side to side when making turns, and can also help you track on a more flat ski, allowing you to make stronger turns​

  • drop-in footbeds

    • don't feel like going full custom? No worries! A drop-in foot bed is much more economical, while still providing added support and comfort

  • punches, stretches, grinds, adding or removing material

    • We can relieve pressure on hot spots and significantly improve comfort, without compromising fit. we can enhance fit by adding material to strategic spots within the boot. our expertise is particularly useful here, as it can be easy to make a boot too lose or too tight when making adjustments to the plastic.
