Salt Lake City Utah custom ski boot fit experts

        The idea that began The Sport loft was conceived on the slopes of Alta Ski Area in 1967. Earl Middlemiss, our founder, was teaching in the Alf Engen ski school and realized his students often started off on the wrong foot because of ill fitting or improperly chosen ski gear. Earl knew that orthotics and boot fitting were essential to a proper skiing foundation. “What,” Earl thought, “could I teach my students if their ski gear worked with them instead of against them.” So, in the fall of 1972, The Sport Loft was born.

Our custom boot fitters can give you a comfortable fit with great performance — the myth that you cannot have both at once is just that, pure myth. Feet that hurt can make what could have ben a great day on the slopes a bad one. We have the fit and performance solution, whether you are seeking a traditional alpine ski boot or a touring boot.

Our approach to boot fitting is unique

You feel it from the moment you begin the fitting process. We take the time to analyze the shape of your foot and leg, ask the right questions about your skiing ability and about your future goals. This enables us to find the right boot to fit your foot and performance needs.



    Each boot starts with a good orthotic, custom made for your foot.

    Immediate edging from the foot up

    The footbed is the foundation controlling your skiing and transfers your every move precisely and quickly to the ski. A footbed adds comfort to the boot because it exactly mirrors the shape of your foot and distributes your weight properly. We incorporate boot balancing and ramp angle adjustment which positions hips properly over the feet in every boot fitting. These steps are critical to achieving maximum performance.

    Canting is the next step and will allow you to stand flat on your skis

    We set your forward lean angle, putting your lower leg at the correct angle relative to your upper leg, making it easier to get out and stay out of "the back seat".


    All of our boots have heat moldable liners allowing 70% of the break-in process to occur before you hit the hill. Boot balancing and heating are all included in the price of the boot. Boot planing, stretching and grinding for difficult fits are extra. We do all of these services with more experience than other shops and assure first-time results. No stretches shrink back.
