Bootfitter in Washington DC area

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Asking this question for a colleague:  What are the recommended boot fitters in the Washington, DC metro area?   Thanks in advance,

I think Brian Deely at Pro Fit Ski in Leesburg is the best in the DC metro area.

Brian Eardley of the Ski Center in DC is supposedly very good as well but I have no personal experience with him.

I got my first pair of boots from Brian Deely at Pro-Fit in Leesburg a few weeks ago. I only got to use them twice before my season was out, but I was very pleased with working with Brian... he seemed to conform to everything you'd read on here about getting a properly fitting boot from a good boot-fitter.

 

We tried several models, shell fit them, talked about how they should feel, wore a couple of models for 15-20 minutes to see how they felt, tried different footbeds... all in all took a couple of hours.

 

After my first day skiing in them, I got different footbeds, and he also measured/checked my canting and put a tiny shim on the left foot to get my legs positioned better (I have knee issues). He suggested making very minor changes to get things dialed in as I ski in them more.

 

I only had one more day after that, but so far they're great - we'll see about it more next season.

Have read good things about Brian Eardley at Ski Center for a number of years.

I've gone to Brian Deely - got my current boots from him - and, if still in that area, would go back.

Both Pro Fit snd Ski Center have great reputations for bootfitting. The key is to call ahead and make an appointment and be specific as to who you want to deal with.

I know at Pro Fit, Brian, who is also the owner, is the guy to deal with. He used to have 2 other great bootfitters there who worked under him but they are out west now. Jeff Harper works with Greg Hoffman at Vail and Derek (can't recall his last name) is in Steamboat at Steamboat Ski and Bike, if I remember correctly.
