Boot Fitters- New England - Page 2

post #31 of 40

I'll also vote for Nick Blaylock at Mount Snow Bootworks.  I'd say he's definately the best in southern VT.

Personally haven't had any work done by them.  Another vote for Nick Blaylock @MtSnow(formerly @GMOL).  Paul Richelson(FeetFirst) in Plymouth is terrific....fwiw.

My boot fitter is Bill Haight at GMOL at Stratton — absolute recommendation.

 

I've never had work done by Nick Blaylock & Comany, but I had my son's feet assessed there, and they're the real deal. 

 

It's said that either of those two are among the best in the country.

Hal at Northern ski works on the Kton access road does great work

Very hard to beat the team at The Boot Pro in Ludlow, VT when it comes to boot fitting. They don't just have one guy, but rather three our four guys who know their boots like few others do. Just go to their website and read the team bios. None of the other shops around Nee England have that extensive experience in one place. And prices are always more than fair.

Don't know about the boot-fitting, but they have a great collection of skis, for sure. Bought my FXs there at a very reasonable price, and their demo rates are excellent.

The entire shop and team at The Boot Pro is top notch. I've been to a few ski stores in my lifetime from NYC to Vail to Okemo and St. Moritz and The Boot Pro is at the very top of all of them. They have a great selection of gear (not sure how they fit it all in a seemingly rather small store) and the team they have assembled there is very, very knowledgeable. And when it comes to boot fitting I just can't see anyone being better. You can have three "expert" guys working on you at one time. Unfortunately it's right at the base of the road to Okemo so we end-up stopping in a bit too much ;-)

Oh no not someone else that recommends The Boot Pro, I've been going there for almost 25 years now, I wouldn't let anyone else touch my boots.

 

A lot of the high level skiers around central VT only go there for boot work. I can also say that Geek, now at Totem Pole ski shop just down the street is also one of  the Best.

 

Shon who owns The Boot Pro hired Geek a couple years back. When I walked in to get new boots, Shon wasn't in the store at that time, I was told  that Geek was a great boot fitter. When I met Geek, the first words out of my mouth were, For 20 years only Shon has fit me for boots. Geek reassured me that he had the same training as Shon and Shon had hired him to train the other guy's in the shop.

 

I said ok, lets do this. I will say Geek is equal to Shon.

 

I can't tell you enough how important it is to get your boots from someone like one of them. If your serious about skiing and want to get the most enjoyment out skiing, a great fitting boot is key.

I am also a long time Boot Pro client, and before that I was a customer of Shon's at Northern Ski Works. The Boot Pro staff really know their stuff, and have all the technology to make sure the boots that are best for your foot (not the ones you think are best because of a review you read) actually fit the way they should.
