The Social Distancing Ski Boot

Posted on July 21, 2020 by Warner

It’s mid-July so it’s time to start planning for the ski season.   However, these challenging times make visiting any kind of store a risk.  It’s especially concerning if you are considering new ski boots with any custom fitting.  
 
At Dodge, we’ve been perfecting the world’s most advanced remote fitting system for over 5 years and have skiers all over the world sharing with us that their Dodge Ski Boots are the best fitting boots they’ve ever owned.
 
That’s why now more than ever, you should use the industry-exclusive Dodge Ski Boots 3D Remote Fitting System to get the best performing, most custom-fit ski boots in the world, all from the safety and convenience of your living room.
 
Today, many of our new customers are expressing how relieved they are to get great fitting boots without risking their health.   Not to mention, there is something spectacular about getting fired up for the season with new gear.  
 
If you’re thinking about new boots and haven’t done a Dodge Fitting Assessment, take a few moments to download our 3D Fitting App and complete the Fitting Questionnaire.  All you need is a smartphone and something to measure your calf circumference.   We’ll provide you with a free fitting assessment so you can see how your Dodge Ski Boots will be customized and set up just for you.  
 
All the Best, 
Bill and Dave
 
P.S. Since the demand was so high last year that we sold out of most sizes by early November, we’ll prioritize your order (and any special considerations) if you submit a completed Fit Kits by August 15, 2020.  We’re already seeing a huge increase in customers this summer and it’s looking like we’ll be sold out early again this year, so don’t wait.  Get your Free Fit Kit in today to make sure you’re not left out in the cold!
 
P.P.S Please feel free to share this with a friend or family member who might be considering new boots that is thoughtful about social distancing.  Thanks!


Here they are! Ventilators we are helping make to save lives!

Posted on April 16, 2020 by Warner

We all just want to help. 

It’s powerful and uplifting to see so many compelling stories of companies doing their part making facemasks, shields, and goggles during this crisis.   It’s truly humbling and shows the strength of the human spirit.  

We, too, are honored and overjoyed to do our part!  The beauty of our proprietary technology for making ski boots is we can design and manufacture just about any thermoformed part the size of a ski boot extremely quickly and cost-effectively.  Today, we are part of a team led by Beta Technologies with the mission to develop and deploy an automatic bag ventilation machine (ABVM) to help as many patients and caregivers as possible during the pandemic.

This is one of the two parts we thermoformed for each ventilator system.    

In just a week, we went from engineering drawings to manufacturing and delivering ventilator housings for FDA Emergency Use Authorization.  Once the ventilator is approved we are ready to make hundreds more to help save lives.

We have always thought our ski boots were the most essential product we could ever produce, but for the time being, we couldn’t be more proud to do our part to save lives and help America get back on track.    

Hope all of you are safe and healthy, 
-Dodge Boot Family 

 P.S. Remember, nothing is more powerful than human ingenuity and determination and we will all be skiing again sooner or later!

Sending You Some Positivity!

Posted on April 2, 2020 by Warner

We, like many of you, wish we were still skiing and were devastated to take our Thule box off the car this week.   

But, we are passionate about people and our ability to find joy even at times like these.  

We hope, first and foremost, that all of you and your families are safe.  But, we also wanted to share what we’ve enjoyed as some of the best alternative activities and good vibes we’ve seen on the internet this week.

These are two of our favorite videos so far.  Let us know if you’ve already seen them or if you have something even better! 

The first one is from Swiss Freeskier, X Games Gold Medalists, and all-around badass, Andri Ragettli.  Click on each picture to bring you to the full video. 

And this one of Brooke Raboutou an American climber preparing for the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo (whenever they will happen).  

Sending you good vibes from Vermont.

What is The American Downhiller with Marco Sullivan | Dodge Chairlift Chats #43

Posted on February 13, 2020 by Warner

“Welcome back to Chairlift Chats”

Hope all of you are getting plenty of time on snow!!   We are having a solid season at Stowe.  

Check out this week’s chairlift chat with Legendary American downhiller, Marco Sullivan. He’s spent 17 years on the U.S. Ski Team and raced 105 World Cup downhills – most any American man.

When he was coming up he didn’t want a personal website like marcosullivan.com so instead, he picked AmericanDownhiller.com. Then fast forward to the middle of his career, the American downhill team embraced the name American Downhiller and it has brought together multiple generations of American downhillers.   

Today he runs ski camps for kids to help them with speed fundamentals staffed with former and current World Cup and Olympic American downhillers. It’s a cool story and he’s doing a ton for the youth of our sport by having these camps.

Check out the video below!  

Cheers,
– Dodge Ski Boot Team

P.S. We sold out of a number of sizes in the last month and recently received new material, so now is the perfect time to jump in line to get your boots as quickly as possible.

Kajsa Larsson, Sweden

Hope you had a wonderful summer and are getting fired up for winter!!  We can’t wait.    

To celebrate our excitement here is our first chairlift chat of the season with Kajsa Larsson, a 26-year-old Swedish freeskier.   

She talks about her competitive drive and background to become world-class in three sports.   It all started being on the Swedish National Gymnastics Team, then she moved on to win a World Tour in windsurfing after two years of full-time sailing, and most recently become a professional skier after only skiing full time for a season.  Insane.  

In our opinion, the most interesting part is towards the end when she talks about the process and reasons for switching sports and the constant desire to be outside in nature.  

Cheers to winter!!

Chairlift Chats: How to test and set up your ski boot aligment​

Posted on April 5, 2019 by Warner

Welcome back to Chairlift Chats!

Hope you’re having a great Friday and going skiing this weekend!!

Some of our customers ask us about setting up their ski boot alignment so we wanted to make a video explaining a great way to test your boot set up to make sure you’re getting the best performance.  

Having the right alignment on Dodge Ski Boots is crucial because the material is so rigid that any small change can make a dramatic difference in skiing performance, which you can see in the video.     

It’s extremely easy to test and really fun to change how your boots are set up to ski your best and works for any boot manufacturer.  

Check out the video below to learn how it works!
