Once upon a time in a small town in New Jersey, a young bloke named Charlie and his brother Shawn walked into a shop with average ski gear they had just purchased at a swap. They didn’t know the gear was average, they didn’t really know anything! The owner showed the two brothers how oversized their ski boots were, 3 sizes! Crikey!! Realizing the error of their ways the two brothers bought new ski boots. A week went by and the two brothers returned to the shop as it was a bloody dandy place to hang and the proprietor told them he has a position open to fill.
Fast forward to 1992. Charlie meets the owner of a soon to be world renowned ski shop in Taos Ski Valley, NM. After a few years boot fitting in New Jersey, Bob Gleason hires him to work at The Boot Doctors in Taos. Charlie has been there ever since. He creates an experience for skiers that is hard to find anywhere. Through his knowledge of feet and ski boots and his skill in fitting skiers with the “right” boot, changing the lives of many, many skiers.
FAIR DINKUM! Not only has Charlie been a student of the science and art of boot fitting, but he is also an instructor for MasterFit University which holds events across the United States as well as Austria and…wait for it… AUSTRALIA! Charlie just finished teaching a 4-day event in Melbourne and will be spending the OZ winter season at SMIGGIN HOLES where he will be custom fitting ski boots for the skiing mob in and around Perisher Valley.
Charlie is a master of stance balancing and the art of custom footbed fabrication as wells as shell and liner modifications. You can read more about getting the right ski boot at the Rhythm blog here.
