Owning a pair of comfortable ski boots is a key ingredient to great day on the slopes, and easier to achieve than you might think. With a few basic assessments of your foot shape and your ankle’s range of motion, The Boot Lab’s knowledgeable staff will narrow down the large selection to just a few for you to try on. For some customers it is just a matter of minutes in the boot to determine if it will work for them; for others modifications may be necessary. The experienced staff at The Boot Lab has the means of stretching and modifying the shell and liner to fine-tune your fit for the absolute best performance.

If you have purchased a boot elsewhere and it’s just not working for you, no problem! Our staff can also work on your existing boots to make sure you have the best fit possible or in some instances suggest another model that will provide a better fit.

We carry boots from multiple brands including Rossignol, Lange, Salomon, Head, Dalbello and K2.

Call The Boot Lab Staff with any questions or simply stop by. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can assist you in having your fit checked, stance and balance adjusted or creating a custom foot bed. Our goal is to make your on mountain adventure the best possible!
