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!

We want to ensure that you find a pair of boots that provide comfort and structure for full days on the slopes. Our custom ski boot service follows three easy steps:
Bring your existing boot or find a new one that fits your needs.
The footbed is the foundation for proper balance, support, and comfort while hitting the slopes. We ensure that the custom footbeds in your ski boots are made to fit your feet perfectly. We’ll go over our custom footbed process in more detail later.
Sometimes some adjustments need to be made during the fitting. However, some adjustments aren’t made until you try skiing in your new boots. Bring your boots back in after your time on the slopes, and we’ll make any necessary adjustments. Ski Trucks is here to support you and improve your skiing experience.
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:
Custom ski boot fittings start at just $60/hr!
At Ski Trucks, if we don’t get your ski boot right the first time, we either fix it or replace it. You can count on us to work with you until you find the perfect fit. Once a Ski Trucks customer — always a Ski Trucks customer.
