BootDoctors Taos Ski Valley
103 Sutton Place
Taos Ski Valley, NM 87525
Store Hours: 8am to 6pm, everyday
The BootDoctors at Taos Ski Valley is basically Blister’s home shop. A number of us at Blister have been getting our boots fit here long before Blister existed. Blister’s editor-in-chief has been going there for 13 seasons, and literally every single boot that Blister’s ski editor Will Brown ever purchased has come from the Taos BootDoctors and was fit by them.
We go there to hang out, talk shop, compare notes, make fun of each other, get our boots fit and learn a ton about boots.
The BootDoctors is an institution in the ski industry, and this particular store is a big reason why we care so much about supporting and highlighting outstanding shops. Having a good relationship with a great bootfitter will very directly affect how much fun you are going to have skiing, and can quite literally determine whether you enjoy or lament every minute on the hill.
History & Experience
The BootDoctors was founded in 1986, and co-owner Bob Remiger has been fitting boots there for 27 years. Blister contributing editor Charlie Bradley has been there for over 20 years, as have Rick Chancellor and Donnie ‘I-have-all-ten-of-my-fingers’ Brokmeyer. Even the “newbies” at the BootDoctors—Margie Smith (15 years), David Shaha (8 years), Trenton Knight, and Hans von Heune—have all been fitting boots for at least five years. That kind of collective experience is pretty unheard of in the bootfitting world, and if you don’t think that matters, well, good luck with your next pair of boots.
The BootDoctors’ Guarantee
When you purchase your boots at the BootDoctors, all tweaking and further bootfitting is free for a year from the date of purchase, and they will work with you until you are satisfied, period.
That any repeat work on your boots is included in the upfront price of your boots makes this a very good deal. Ignore this value at your own risk.
Ski & Snowboard Boots
The BootDoctors carries a wide range of ski and snowboard boots—more than 60 different models—from Lange, Salomon, Fischer, Scarpa, Nordica, Tecnica, Atomic, Rossignol, K2 and Black Diamond.
Custom Ski Boot Liners & Foot Beds
They also carry various models of Zip Fit and Intuition customizable liners which you might want to discuss with them, and we believe that every single skier ought to have a custom footbed in his or her ski boots, and they can mold them for you.
Skis & Snowboards For Sale and Demo
