Our Ski Boots
A good pair of ski boots is the most important ski equipment, meaning it’s crucial to find the right pair. All feet are different, so it’s not easy to find ski or snowboard boots that fit perfectly right off the shelf. Our boot-fitting specialists can create a pair of ski or snowboard boots that perfectly fit your feet. Skiing and snowboarding are more fun when your boots fit just right!

CUSTOM SKI BOOT FITTING IN UTAH
The basis of a great-performing and comfortable ski boot is a custom-made footbed or skithotic.
At Ski Trucks, we build our customers’ ski and snowboard boots from the ground up. Here’s how we do it:
First, we use infrared/X-ray light on our BootDoc Podoscope to analyze your feet. This analysis helps us determine your balance point or if you’re supinated (Bull-legged) or pronated (knock-kneed). More importantly, we can determine how much arch collapse you are experiencing. We use this information to choose the correct footbed and arch height.
We heat the footbed to 130 degrees Fahrenheit and place your foot into the Talonavicular Neutral Position to ensure the bones in the foot are aligned correctly. Your foot is then placed onto the footbed, and it is molded specifically to your foot.
Several more customization options ensure your boots fit as comfortably as possible. These include:
Heat moldable liners
Custom injection liners
Foot and boot leveling (to allow for a perfectly flat ski on the snow)
Custom ski boot fittings start at just $60/hr!
“Amazing customer service! They stayed after hours just to make sure I had the perfect ski gear. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone made sure we left happy. After skiing all my life, they made sure I had the perfect and most comfortable ski boots I’ve ever tried. I never thought that I could find a ski boot that was comfortable. They had the biggest ski gear selection I’ve ever seen. I’ll be coming back for more rentals in the future. Make sure to make Ski Trucks a stop if you need any type of winter gear.”
“I wish I knew about this place sooner! I’ve been snowboarding for years, and now I’m trying skiing. I wanted my own boots, so I went in thinking I was still going to be spending hundreds of dollars on them. Not only did I not spend a fortune on boots, but the customer service was also amazing, and they were so knowledgeable and wanted me to get the best boots. No hidden agendas, no salesman being eager to make a deal. The whole experience was awesome! No more shopping around, I’ve found the best shop, best people, and even if the prices were higher, I’d still choose this place!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are answers to some of the most common questions about our ski boot fitting services.
- Performance. Custom moldings are perfectly molded to your foot shape and the ski boot interior, which provides a transfer of total power from the boots to the skis. Ski boot insoles that fit well eliminate excess movement, allowing more control, and improving your overall performance.
- Comfort. Comfort is more than just how your feet feel. Better comfort leads to less fatigue, more time skiing, and less time feeling sore.
- Warm feet. Cold toes while skiing is so common that many skiers accept it as part of the sport. With custom-made boots, you no longer have to sacrifice warmth for a fun day on the slopes. Because ski boots and insoles are molded to your foot shape, blood supply isn’t impinged, which means better blood circulation and warmer feet.
