Custom boots for the experience of your life!

Did you know that Windham’s Boot Lab is run by a Master Bootfitter? Marc Stewart is one of the most accomplished fitters in the industry, with over 30 years of experience and the certifications to match.

Windham Mountain Sports Boot Lab provides high-level expert service to every customer in a low pressure, friendly atmosphere. We specialize in stance balancing and alignment, on-snow evaluations, ski specific custom footbeds, prescription/sport orthotics, and the full array of boot and liner modifications. No boot fit issue is too challenging or unique for us. If you’re in the market for a new pair of boots, would like to enhance the comfort and performance of your current boots, or simply have questions, just stop by the shop! You can also email or call Marc to schedule an appointment.

Initial Fitting & Adjustments

The Boot Lab stands behind every boot we sell. The purchase of a new boot comes with a full year of adjustments following the date of purchase. When scheduling an adjustment/follow-up, please come in with solid details of the symptoms of whatever issues you are experiencing, i.e. pain in a specific spot, general looseness, etc. This will help us to identify, address, and solve the specific fit issues you are experiencing, many of which are quite common in new boots.

Follow-up adjustments after one year will be subject to our standard labor rate of $125/hour plus materials.

New Boot Fitting Appointment

  • 90 Minute Boot Fitting - $75

If you do not buy a boot with us, your appointment fee covers our time. You will not leave empty handed, as we will still recommend or special order a boot for you. The purchase of a new pair of boots AND a custom footbed will waive the fit fee off the total price.

For more information or to schedule an appointment contact Marc Stewart at mstewart@windhammountain.com or call 518-734-4300 ext. 1191.

About Marc:

Marc’s ultimate goal is to match the appropriate boots to a given skier based on their unique anatomy, personal skiing style, and ability. In a nutshell… he wants your skiing to be as comfortable and as effortless as possible! Marc has been custom bootfitting since 1989, and as a life-long skier, board-certified Pedorthist, PSIA Rocky Mountain Level III instructor, boot tester for SKI and Skiing magazines' annual gear reviews, former owner/operator of the Southwest Orthotic Lab in Taos, NM, and a member of MasterFit University’s teaching staff, Marc knows how equipment can assist or hinder a skier’s ability to progress and perform to their potential. He’s helped hundreds of skiers from international level racers and professional ski instructors to those who are brand new to the sport. Using creative approaches based on years of experience, Marc perfectly dials boots in to address a skier’s comfort, performance, and biomechanics.
