The Boot Pro is committed to providing ski racers, both young and old, with the ultimate in race product and service. We understand the specific needs that distinguish ski racing from recreational skiing.
We offer our racers only the best. Each year we stock an extensive collection of the newest race skis, boots, poles, protective gear and tuning supplies.
Ski Race Bootfitting
A ski boot “race fit” must be snug and precise. Our bootfitters make sure each racer goes out on the hill with the right fit. We frequently perform stance analysis’ on our racers to evaluate any corrections needed to set the edge of the ski where it needs to be on the course. Balancing, lifter installation, sole planing, custom footbeds are all tools of our trade used to customize the racer’s boot.
Ski Race Tuning
Our tuning technicians are among the very best when it comes to servicing the race community. Their experience and attention to detail shows in every tune that goes out. A typical race tune involves applying specific structures to the base as conditions dictate, setting specific edge bevels, hand finishing each edge, applying high end waxes and finishing off in the hot box to bake the wax into the bases. Same day turn around for our racers is our specialty!
We take pride in servicing our young racers. We avidly support the local Okemo ski racing club, OMARA, and the local ski academy, OMS (Okemo Mt School). We love to watch them grow and progress!
The Boot Pro Race Center is where you can find news about your favorite athletes, ski equipment, ski racing teams and more about the exciting world of ski racing.
