Made the mistake of buying my last pair of ski boots at the turkey sale… I had just moved out here so didn't know any better at the time since they were the first pair of legit ski boots I bought. They fit me ok but still hurt often enough that it makes my average ski day not as enjoyable as it should be. Looking to spend the time and money now to get the right boots.
Which shops should I be focusing on for knowledgeable boot fitters? Brief Google search says Fanatyk in Whistler and Destination in North Van are solid options. Any recommendations are much appreciated.
Also - how much should I be aiming to spend on boots in general? I want to get the right boots regardless of the price, but within reason. Also, are custom liners a good idea for the $$ or should a good boot fitter be able to find me something off the shelf that fits close to perfectly?
Best time to buy is now, every shop should swing you a deal on last years stock. Since last year was so epic…..
North Shore Ski and Sailboard is choice one for me.
Destination: If Jeff still runs the place and fits he has been at it for 30 years.
I fit a Salomon best, the last pair I had for 6 seasons was fit at Surefoot in Whistler, paid big bucks even with bro deal. Custom everything….
The current pair fit at North Shore ski is three seasons in with stock liners that mold to your feet. just as good, less money. If you don't have one a footbed is key, I have never tried the intuition liners but have heard nothing but good things.
