Buy Ski Boots in Breckenridge & Demo Rental Skis

There is snow up on the mountains right now! We had a true wintery storm blow through on Sunday that has made the peaks look like winter is just around the corner, and the ski areas are already blowing snow so it won’t be long before we get back on the lifts. In fact, Arapahoe Basin, which is often the first ski area in our part of the Rockies to open, is planning on opening tomorrow!

We’re aware that not everyone will hit the slopes tomorrow, but whether you need a quick update on gear and boots to get on the slopes ASAP, or you’re just starting to think about winter sports, we wanted to get some information up on the blog about the ski boots for sale in Breckenridge as well as some of the demo rental skis we’ll have at the shop this season.

fischer rental ski boots at ARE in breckenridgeFischer is a leader in providing boots that perform beyond expectations, and they have built a solid reputation for performance and reliability. They developed SOMA-Tec to account for the natural splay in the feet that most skiers have. SOMA-Tec lets your feet maintain their natural position in a slight V which aligns the skis in a more direct and parallel position. This will help put less strain on joints and helps to improve the power you transmit to your skis While you’re on the slopes.

High Tech Tuning & Ski Rentals in Breckenridge

Big news for both our ski tuning and ski rental business here at A Racer’s Edge in Breckenridge: we now have a brand new Wintersteiger TrimJet ski tuning machine in the shop. It was delivered on Friday and moved it into our shop with the help of a crane. This new machine will deliver bevels on the side and base edges with unbelievable accuracy. The desired edge bevels are programmed in to the machine, the ski placed on the guide and the TrimJet does the rest.

One of the beauties of this machine is that you can get your skis and boards tuned more frequently as the accuracy of the system takes off much less edge while still delivering the best result. Just like computers and smartphones, ski tuning equipment gets more impressive every year and we’re proud to bring this equipment to Breckenridge.

The TrimJet will let us keep our demo and rental skis at our Breckenridge, CO location in superior condition as well.

And by the way, we are opening the shop beginning next Tuesday, October 14th from 10 am until 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday; closed Sunday and Monday.
