Ski Connexions: Blister Recommended Shop in Whistler, CA

Ski Connexions is built on founder Barry Allison’s passion for skiing, and his extensive background in ski instructing. Barry has been bootfitting for over 27 years and has worked as a CSIA Level 4 Instructor and Level 4 Course Conductor, so Ski Connexions became a way of merging his passion and expertise for bootfitting with the skill and instructing of skiing.

Ski Connexions is based out of Evo Village Sports in Whistler, Canada, just steps away from world-class skiing, and Barry also has access to Evo’s full boot inventory, making for a broad selection, which, paired with his expert bootfitting skills, makes for a great experience when looking for your next pair of ski boots. 


Barry utilizes the inventory of Evo Village Sports for his bootfitting services, which includes boots from Salomon, Nordica, Atomic, Lange, Rossignol, and Dalbello. He also stocks his own supply of bootfitting materials that cover all your bootfitting needs, including Sidas Custom insoles, Atomic Mimic Professional Liners, and more.


Barry’s extensive bootfitting experience, paired with his high-level skills as a ski instructor has given him a comprehensive view of what a proper boot fit should entail. He offers the full spectrum of services, including stance alignment, custom bootfitting, custom insoles, shell and liner modifications, and aftermarket boot upgrades. He provides fully comprehensive stance alignment including the ability to plane and cant boots.

He is also the only person in the region who can install Cast Touring Tech inserts, allowing for the conversion of an alpine boot into a touring-ready boot. Typically, you would have to send your boot away to have this work performed, but Barry is the only person in Whistler who is trained and certified to make this conversion for you, in-house out of Evo Village Sports.

Barry has a long history in ski instructing, complemented by lots of skills and experience in bootfitting. He is the Atomic bootfitting trainer, helping people from Atomic Ski Boots learn the craft of bootfitting. He excels in both race-level and recreational bootfitting, so no matter your skiing level, he is ready to take your experience in ski boots to the next level.

  1. Can Confirm. After having lots of boot problems, Barry got me in my perfect boots and worked out all the kinks in a short 4day trip. Amazing service. Worth every penny

  2. Barry is the best. I’ve had several other fitters that couldn’t satisfy my expectations. Barry fit my Hawx Ultra 130 Professionals perfectly. I’ve never had better fitting boots.

  3. Barry did my boots this past winter and it genuinely transformed my skiing. I’ve never been fussy with boots but the pair I have now are totally snug, tight where they need to be and pain free, super impressed!

  4. I have difficult to fit feet and losing toenails at the beginning of every ski season was the norm until I was connected with Barry’s skills of boot fitting. He’s not just really good; he’s incredibly instinctive due to his decades of expert performance and can get to the root of any fitting problem you might have quickly. Professional to the bone. Thanks Barry

  5. Barry did my touring boots while he was still in Ottawa one summer. Amazing fit, can’t say enough good things about the man, and his craft.

  6. Barry has been my boot fitter for years. I’m on my 3rd pair of boots that he has done for me. Before I retired from ski instructing I referred several clients to Barry. All were so pleased with his ability to make their boots fit so well and commented on how their properly fitted boots helped with their ski improvement. Many thanks from Barby Hewton

  7. I was recommended to Barry by another coach back in 2018. He got me out of some I’ll fitted boots and into something that gave me the response and performance I needed to continue training. Within two runs on the hill and a couple minor tweaks my new boots gave me what I needed. Barry’s level of knowledge of feet, boots and correct fitting in such a quick turnaround is worth every penny.
    Thank you Barry I may not be teaching anymore but the boots are still going strong and allow for pain free fun days.
