Ski Racing

Discover Vermont's Best Kept Ski Racing Secret - The Boot Pro in Ludlow VermontThe 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.

Ski Race Products

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. Our Wintersteiger Mercury tuning machine can apply base structures that are current with the World Cup technology and extremely accurate and consistent edge bevels.

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!

“Dear Alex & Shon,

 I wanted to reach out and tell you what a fantastic job your ski/race service techs do. As a former Canadian Ski Team member and as an Okemo ski coach, I’ve had plenty of race service over the years and it’s not just the big expensive tuning equipment that makes the difference…it’s really the skill of your friendly ski/race service staff. As you know, a great tune up plays a large role in the enjoyment and potential success for any athlete. I’m always recommending your shop to anyone looking for an excellent tune up and the value of your season tune up or race package.
