DENVER – The Bootdoctors of Taos and Telluride were voted Top Stores with “Most Knowledgeable Staff” in the U.S. by Skiing Business Magazine at its 2013 annual Skiing Business Awards on Jan. 31, in Denver, held in conjunction with the Snow Industries Association Trade Show. The Bootdoctors were finalists in the categories of "Best Bootfitting," "Best Vibe" and "Most Innovative," as well.
“Constant improvement” is the philosophy of The Bootdoctors’ co-founders Bob Gleason and Bob Remiger, who, along with their co-owners and staff, make it a point to try out the latest gear and techniques and participate in extensive ongoing training.
The Bootdoctors started in Taos Ski Valley, N.M. in 1986, and has added four stores in Telluride over the past 15 years. For 26 years this family-owned and operated sporting goods and ski shop business has focused on high quality services and products. Gleason and Remiger are both nationally recognized Master Bootfitters for ski, snowboard, bike and hike. Bootfitters on their team average over ten years of experience, and are all advanced Master Fit University trained. Five Bootdoctors supervisors are Master Fit trainers of bootfitting for ski and snowboard shops from all across the U.S., and every year at least three of the upper level staff are gear testers for Ski and Skiing magazine. Charlie Bradley, a 20-year veteran bootfitter for Bootdoctors, writes in-depth articles for www.blistergearreview.com.
This commitment to the search for the most updated information about outdoor sporting goods permeates the whole business.
The Taos and Telluride shops, which feature carefully selected lines of ski and sporting clothing, plus ski rentals, demos and sales, offer an expertise that goes far beyond bootfitting and into sporting clothing, outdoor recreational equipment, fly fishing, cycling, rafting, hiking and more.
The other three co-owners, Linda Mogetz, Kyle Remiger and Penelope Gleason, all participate in hundreds of hours of clinics and training every season alongside their employees.
“Folks travel from all over to get the benefit of our highly trained staff and great customer service. We work hard to maintain the cutting edge in outdoor recreational equipment, techniques and services,” says Gleason. “By staying small and focused we are able to offer a much higher level of quality in the world of sporting goods. We love the outdoors and want to help others enjoy their experiences whether skiing, biking, hiking, fishing or hiking.”
