    We are nearing the end of the 23/24 Winter Season. Please check inventory in your boot size(if you know it) and ensure we have a style of boot you are interested in that fits your foot available prior to booking your bootfitting appointment. If you are interested in special ordering a boot from us, please reach out to have our team check vendor inventory for you.

    the BootLAB @BENTGATE

    Bentgate is the premier backcountry boot fitting shop in the front range. Our specialized staff is highly trained to ensure all-day comfort and maximize the uphill and downhill performance of your next touring boot.  We perform all high-end fit measures including custom footbeds, liner replacement and modification, and boot shell punching and stretching.

    The bootfitting journey can be broken down into three phases. First, our bootfitters will assist you in finding a boot which can accomodate your foot and skiing style. After finding a boot that is a fit, a custom footbed is molded to the unique contours of your footshape and trimmed to fit your boot liner. Finally, you begin the fine tuning process of boot modification where our expert bootfitters will micro adjust your boot liner and shell to produce a fit that provides you with comfort and performance. Boot adjustments and modifications can be made throughout the lifetime of your boot and in some cases are covered for the first year after you purchase a new boot from Bentgate.

    We EXCLUSIVELY sell Alpine Touring, Crossover and Telemark Ski boots. The boots in our selection provide a walk mode and some amount of cuff rotation which allows the skier to transition between ski mode and walk mode in order to obtain objectives where uphill and downhill travel is necessary.

    We DO NOT sell Alpine or strictly Downhill boots with no walk mode. If you need Alpine/Downhill ski boots, fitting and services we highly recommend Boot Mechanics.
    We DO NOT sell Cross Country Ski boots. If you need Cross Country ski boots, fitting and services we highly recommend Boulder Nordic Sport
