Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! The leaves are turning and there’s a hint of snow on the top of the mountains.
The new SKI Magazine Gear Guide 2019 is fresh off the press. Time to get the scoop on what’s new, what’s different, what’s the coolest ski gear for the upcoming season.
And, once again, you can rely on the words of wisdom from Bob Gleason, founder of the Bootdoctors. As Bob tells it, he has the best job in the world as a gear tester for SKI magazine. He says,
”To ski all the next season’s skis tuned to perfection with a gang of rippers is such a thrill. I love to translate what I feel in my feet into words which clearly help folks make the best ski choices.”
Does custom bootfitting make a difference? See what the experts at SKI Magazine say below.
Here’s to a great season dancing down the slopes with the very best gear especially for you!
Before embarking on a two-week road trip on British Columbia’s Powder Highway, my friend Cooper asked for my advice about two particular ski boots he had his eye on, mostly because he read our reviews and could likely get them for a discount online. My answer?
BootDoctors’ good friend and Master Bootfitter Bob Egeland addresses the
challenges and opportunities with the new generation of AT boots.
Check out his hints on making sure your touring boots take you as far as you want to push it.
Then come in to Bootdoctors in Taos or Telluride to get your next pair of touring boots properly fitted.
We have Master bootfitters who specialize in touring boots.
While his profession might leave some feeling a bit squeamish, Bob Egeland, a board-certified Pedorthist, is passionate about keeping people happy in their ski boots all day long. And finding a comfortable fit is his top priority, especially for backcountry skiers who don’t have the option to take a break in the lodge if toes start to tingle.
You don’t have to ascend to the top of the mountain for the truth (unless you want to.)
