AT bootfitter near Boston

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Suggestions for a good bootfitter as close to Boston as possible to fit some AT boots? I have hard to fit feet (low volume and bony ankles), so I'm going to need some expert help and likely multiple visits.

Welcome to EpicSki!  I'm guessing that you might get more response in Ski Gear.  Some people only look at certain forums and Backcountry is not that active during the off-season.

 

Can't remember a recent thread about Boston boot fitters but I know they exist.  Let's try moving your thread and see what happens.

Ski Stop in Westwood is excellent but I don't know if they do AT.  They have just been bought by Boston Ski and Tennis and per their website the boot fitting services have moved to the Newton location of BST.

That's where I got my alpine boots fitted, I agree they are great. Already called them though, they don't carry tech binding compatible boots. 

 

Looks like I'm going to have to do some driving. Ragged Mountain Equipment in NH has been recommended. It looks like Alpine Options in Warren, VT has a good selection and has a bootfitting page on their website with the Masterfit logo.

If you're in the mood to drive all the way up to Warren, VT, one option is to visit PJ at Race Stock Sports.  From his website:

Tec-toe installation is a new service we are providing for people who would like to use their solid sole boot in a tec toe climbing binding like the Dynafit touring bindings.  Any solid sole boot can be modified this way., but it can’t be done to a bolt on lug sole.  The install is $200.  This includes solid 7mm replaceable bi injected lift kits for toe and heel.  Shipping not included but is at cost.

 

Maybe not a "real" AT boot, but it would work in "real" AT bindings.

Alpine Options is a great shop that has several dedicated people on staff that really know what they are doing when it comes to boot fitting.
