Our knowledgeable staff is exceptional at matching the best ski boot option to each customer based on their foot profile, their skiing profile, athletic ability, future goals, and budget. We take the time to get to know you, your skier type and your feet. We enjoy what we do and it shows in our desire to make the boot fitting experience fun. No two feet are the same.

Our experienced boot fitters will assess your feet and fit you into a boot that works for your ability and your feet. From custom shells and liners to custom insoles, we have the brands, tools and the ‘know how’ to provide the best boot fit possible. With over 50 years of combined boot fitting experience, we are confident that you will leave Gear West with a great fitting ski boot that will allow you to ski with comfort, confidence, and control all day.

Our Process -

Assessment - through questioning the skier and analyzing the foot structure, we determine which ski boot options would be optimal. We also determine if a custom foot bed will be beneficial to achieving the optimum fit. 

Options - Gear West carries a full line of the very best boots from Fischer, Lange, Atomic, Dalbello, Tecnica, Head, Nordica and Full Tilt.  We also use the Boot Doc system to assist us in analyzing the foot and directing us to the proper insole if needed. We offer a full range of insoles and customization options. 

How Can Custom Insoles Help You?

They Provide:

    • Excellent Comfort (Minimizes aching arches and hot spots.)
    • Better Stance Alignment
    • Better Power Transfer
    • Better Overall Performance

 

Silver Gold Platinum  
At this Footbed level we use a trim to fit Masterfit or Boot Doctors insole. Both brands of footbeds are available in low, medium and high options. This is a great affordable option for many fits and is a definite upgrade from any footbed that comes in a boot. These can help with volume issues and better arch support.   For this level of footbed we use a semi-customizable footbed from Boot Doctors This is a great low volume option that provides a better arch support and firmer heel anchor than the Trim-to-fit.   MasterFit full custom insole. This foot bed provides the ultimate in support and performance. Perfect for severe pronation as well as those who desire optimum performance.
