Excelent service. Ryan did a great job. The boots fits perfect.
Monday, Mar 19 2018 7:33 AM Ski Boot Adjustment
While visiting Whistler my boots had progressively become more uncomfortable. Set an appointment with Scott to adjust the boots. We ended up stretching and compressing the injected liner and the final change was to punch the boot in the instep area. Boots are once again comfortable. They schedule an hour for the adjustment, made around 6 adjustments in that time period. Total cost was around $60.00. Happy with the service, timeliness, and end result.

At first I was slightly put off that I had to make an appointment on line. But it's actually a good system....Fanatyk offers plenty of time for each appointment and when you walk into the store, they are ready for you and have some idea what's wrong (or right)... I wanted to discuss a shim for the boots -- they do pack out eventually -- and made my way to Whistler (I was in Utah when I first sensed that I might need a shim) especially so I could consult with Fanatyk... Making an appointment before I even got to Whistler was good since I knew I would have time to deal with the (minor issue).
Friday, Mar 16 2018 9:18 PM Happy feet
It took a bit of tweaking but the boots are now very comfortable -- Fanatyk made good on its promise of lifetime support to make the (actually very few) adjustments to the boot (a little bit of "punching out" to give one toe some more room. They don't rush you, as well. I haven't compared prices but even if slightly more expensive (and not even sure it's true) I'd pay it because continuing support for boots is absolutely essential. I'd go back and buy boots from them (other gear too) in a heartbeat. The 3-4 techs I've dealt with all seemed competent.
Thursday, Mar 15 2018 2:08 PM Nice new Head boots .
New boots fitted with patience. One tweek and they are great. New binding and the improvements are tangable.
Sunday, Mar 11 2018 8:45 PM Ski boot purchase
The assistance from Jamie B was very professional, he appeared a little shy - but friendly, The support received with two further adjustments were amazing - these guys were very patient and helpful and I did not have to wait for service! Thank you so much - I now have comfortable boots to fit my NON matching sized feet !!!
Sunday, Mar 11 2018 12:57 PM Boot refitting
My boot had given me a blister on my toe and we came in to have that area punched out. We had excellent customer service and a very knowledgeable service man. Thank you very much!
Wednesday, Mar 07 2018 9:50 AM Great Experience
I had an amazing experience getting ski boots here. Ryan gave great advice and was very helpful when trying to decide on boots. The service was fantastic, and were happy to make adjustments to the boots after a few days of skiing, free of charge. Would highly recommend Fanatyk.
Monday, Mar 05 2018 10:23 AM Very understanding Monday, Mar 05 2018 2:54 PM Perfect fit
Great fitting for both of us with Ryan. Went back next day for small tweak. Perfect fit. Thanks.
I was fitted into a pair of boots that seemed like they were going to work but I was getting ongoing foot pain. They have been very professional and are taking the boots back. Fanatyk deserves its reputation as a company that stands behind what they sell. Very impressed.
Sunday, Mar 04 2018 6:44 PM I HAMy new boots
I was fiited for new boots by Adrian after deciding my boots of 15 years old fitted by an indifferent Italian with limited English were ready for retirement. Heck I couldn't turn left without severe pain which made skiing the gemstobe bowls all the more challenging. I am a chartered Physiotherapist ( something Adrian didn't know) and I was impressed how quickly he accurately assessed my, shall we say, my quirky biomechanics, by eye. Gadgets and gizmos are great but in my opinion nothing beats the skill of a great technician, something Adrian has in spades and he addressed my biomechanical oddities effectively. So my new ski boots, I have had them for a few days, and being homest it took me a few hours to get used to them. Now I dont even think about them when I am skking - I forget that they are there- I can think of no greater complement. The turning issue has been completely resolved and a bootpack doesn't leave me in tears. Thanks guys great service. I love my boots.
Sunday, Mar 04 2018 5:56 PM Thanks!
Andrew did an awesome job molding my liners and punching my shells. Also a super nice guy. Thanks for getting a great shop!

Monday, Feb 26 2018 6:51 PM Miss
Excellent Service - my only disappointment was that they wouldn't hold my boots and skis there for a night, which I felt was inflexible considering the amount I'd just spent.
Sunday, Feb 25 2018 10:19 PM Game changer
Gracias to Fanatyko as the establishment ... Andrew for adjustments of my boots that brought my skiing days up to a 10/10. Gracious, skilled and totally welcoming environment. Peace

Thanks for a great service.
Fantastic customer service. Guaranteeing a product from day one and then delivering when an issue occurred, I can have no complaints at all. Fanatyk Co's reputation is well justified.
Thursday, Feb 22 2018 4:42 PM Happy Camper
Kevin is a fantastic job again in adjusting my boots for me. I have been really happy with the boots from the day I first had them fitted.
Thursday, Feb 22 2018 2:15 AM Happy skiing
To me boots are the most important piece of equipment, If they don't fit you are in pain and it shows in your skiing. Fanatyk co really look after you and go beyond many of other boot fitters. They checked and adjusted the alignment of my boot and this was a major problem with my previous boots. My skis now sit flat and my knees don't twing or pull. I am so happy with the knowledge and care that was put into fitting my boot. Thank you for helping me Fanatyk co
Wednesday, Feb 21 2018 6:25 AM Have the best boots ever
I just got fitted for boots. Fantastic experience. Got a great pair of boots orthotics and heat moulding done. 3 days on the slopes, no foot pain, way better carving and I feel more in control. When I finish at the end of the day I’m comfortable and not rushing to get them off. My fitter was awesome. He listened to what I was experiencing with my old boots and got me sorted really nicely.
Sunday, Feb 18 2018 11:35 AM Excellent Boot Fitting and Recommendations Monday, Feb 19 2018 10:51 AM Good and efficient
I had a recent appointment for new boots. I received good and courteous service from Scott and I am now much more comfortable on the slopes.
Excellent fitting and fair prices. Was a little challenging to reserve a fitting time as they are crazy busy.
Saturday, Feb 17 2018 8:22 AM Fantastic Fanatyk Co!!
Thanks so much for all your help. All four family members fitted with new skis & new boots - and all extremely happy!!! Certainly added to a great holiday. We’ll see you again when we’re back in Whistler!
Friday, Feb 16 2018 6:28 PM Fanatyk about Fanatyk
I will start by saying I highly recommend this place, the staff are super friendly, knowledgeable and best of all reasonably priced. Following a miserable 1st day on the mountain due to my old uncomfortable boots. I stopped in and made an appointment for a fitting the next morning. Jamie B fitted me with super comfortable boots based on the issues I was having with my ankles. Walking to the lift I was in no pain. After a few runs though I started getting this excruciating pain in both my feet. I went back to have Jamie take a look but he was busy with another customer. Kobai came over to help me. a few minutes after I arrived. I explained the pain I was having and that in the past I had occasional suffered this pain but not at this intensity. After a few minutes of chatting and diagnostics Kobai explained to me that the problem was most likely due to my achilles tendon in both my feet. He gave me a few tips on how to deal with this issue and inserted a simple lift in each boot. Problem solved I was back to sking painless for the first time in years.
Monday, Feb 12 2018 11:39 AM Fantastic Fit at Fanatyk Co Wednesday, Feb 14 2018 10:28 PM My feet are happy
Ryan listened to my specific issues and tweaked my boot and fit me with new liners. My comfort has been vastly improved and now I have far more control when skiing. Thank you, Ryan!
After skiing for 45 years it's the best and most comfortable ski boot fit I've ever had! Kevin was fantastic, he knew which boots would fit my feet and suit my ability and then he balanced the fit between comfort and performance. I walked out of Fanatyk Co and onto the hill and was able to ski comfortably without any further adjustments. I would highly recommend Kevin and Fanatyk Co.
Wednesday, Feb 07 2018 3:20 PM My new Ski boots
I love my new ski boots, Scott was the best he spend a lot of time getting me in to the right boots with a perfect fit you guys rock BTW my friend also got boots and was in so much pain and they gave him a full refund with no questions asked
Tuesday, Feb 06 2018 7:44 PM Service
Once again, Kevin was very professional and able to understand exactly what I needed to do with my boot when I described my chanlleges. He was very encouraging to me about the opportunities of tweeking my boot if I did not feel 100 percent comfortable. Thanks Kevin. Now to work on the operator!!!!
Sunday, Feb 04 2018 8:13 PM A fantastic experience
I had a new pair of boots fitted on my recent visit to Whistler. The guys were fantastic. I tried on a number of pairs of boots until we found a pair that were right for my feet - no one tried to sell me on any particular brand or pair of boots. The fitting on the first day was almost perfect, and I skied the next 2 days without any issues. I went back a couple of times for some minor adjustments and to have the alignment checked - I was always met with a smile and helpful recommendations. With the alignment corrected I am skiing with my knees straight for the first time ever. Thank you so much Fanatyk
Sunday, Feb 04 2018 1:09 PM Review of boot fitting
Andrew went above and beyond to help me with my boot fitting/new liners. Every time I have been to Fanatykco the service has been excellent. I highly recommend them if you are looking for new boots or you need adjustment.
Saturday, Feb 03 2018 12:23 PM Boot fitting
Amazing work from everybody there. Everybody there was super friendly and I got a boot that I think will last me for quite a while!
Friday, Feb 02 2018 9:22 PM Great service from knowledgeable nice guys!
Thanks Kobe you saved my feet and my trip!! I like skiing again!!!
Thursday, Feb 01 2018 3:45 PM Best service in Whistler!
Fanatyk Co have gone above and beyond my expectations. I have always struggled to get boots to fit my feet (wide fore-foot and narrow heel) but Scotty patiently helped me get the perfect fit over several sessions. I look forward to using these boots in comfort for years but when eventually I need a new pair, I will be heading back to Fanatyk Co. Cannot recommend them highly enough!
Tuesday, Jan 30 2018 3:12 PM Outstanding Service
Great service! Prompt and effective. Kevin Ahearn quickly identified my problem and resolved it by stretching the liner for my right ski boot. Customer service from him and the other staff at Fanatyk Co, was as always, First rate. I recommend them highly and will be sure to visit them again the next time I am in the area. Kudos to the managing partners for maintaining the outstanding service level from all the staff.
Monday, Jan 29 2018 11:49 AM Who knew ski boots were so comfy!
I came in with some pain in new boots I bought. I just thought I had to tough it out and pack em out myself but Kevin molded my liners and threw in a heel lift and all my problems are solved! Skiing better than ever! These guys are pros.
Sunday, Jan 28 2018 5:02 PM Awesome Boot Fitting
The boot fitting team at Fanatyk are excellent. The experience is not for someone in the market to simply look around. The service provided is for someone who wants to "buy" a new pair of ski boots. The boot fitters are pros. They know the nuances of how their boot brands fit differently, and are able to make custom adjustments on site. I had a morning appointment and walked out of the store directly to the Gondola. Two great days of skiing and my feet felt great!
Friday, Jan 26 2018 8:50 PM Bootfitting
Hello, Scotty did exactly what I needed with my boots. Plus, he answered all my questions about skeletons, liners, you name it. Thumbs up! Thank you so much, Scott.
Thursday, Jan 25 2018 2:23 PM Highly recommend!
I spent some time researching ski boot fitters before choosing Fanatyk. Couldnt have made a better decision. Fantastic service - staff are friendly, knowledgable, attentive and really take the time to get the fit right. A huge thanks Kobai to my fitter for doing such a great job fixing my alignment! Highly recommend to all (p.s there are usually dogs in the shop, which is an added bonus!)
Wednesday, Jan 24 2018 4:59 PM Kevin Rules!!!
Thanks for making my feet happy again and getting me stoked on skiing again
Saturday, Jan 20 2018 6:33 PM Narrow fitting ski boot
I recently purchased a new pair of boots and tried them out for the first time today. I have a very narrow foot and it's tricky to find something that fits me nice and snug. Scotty set me up with the Dalbello Krypton and it feels great. Looking forward to pushing my skiing to another level!
Wednesday, Jan 17 2018 10:02 PM Awesome service
Hands down the best for boot supply and fitting in whistler. Friendly staff and technical knowledge is second to none. Would highly recommend.
Wednesday, Jan 17 2018 6:01 PM Boot Adjustment
I had an ankle issue w my boots which gave me quite a bit of pain. Booked time w with the Fanatyk team and boom!!! 20mins later my boots are comfy as.... Thx guys, great job Highly recommend for new boots or adjustments to exisiting - 5 STARS!!
Monday, Jan 15 2018 10:40 PM Fanatyk = Great Fit
Great shop, highly recommended. Staff is super knowledgeable about feet and which boots fit them. Adrian did a great job fitting Intuition liners in my back country boots and was great to talk with during the process.... these guys know as much about boots as anyone, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Saturday, Jan 13 2018 3:47 PM Great Service
Jamie B fit both myself and my boyfriend for new boots. The process couldn't have been easier and Jamie was fantastic. The boots are incredible and have already noticed the improvements in my skiing.
Sunday, Jan 07 2018 7:13 PM Always the best
I always know that when I head to fanatyk co the guys will make it better. Whether it's making my boots stop hurting or fixing my bike. I can count on them.
Friday, Jan 05 2018 10:58 AM Ski Boot fitting
I thought Adrian was a knowledgeable and experienced boot fitter who made me feel very confident I would get a boot that fits. I was nervous as i had little time in Whistler to follow up and have purchased both ski and snowboard boots in the past that ended up really hurting my feet, this shop has helped me to feel more confident that i can both adjust the way my boot fits and also come back and get help. I have skied in my boots for a few days now ad they definitely improved my ski performance as they fit nice. Now they are loosening off a little and I will have to figure out how to press my foot into the boot, and will likely have to be back for a visit and some adjustments next time i am through, likely in the summer, which will pose a challenge, but seeing as there are the same people in the shop hopefully that will work out as i am not sure when I will be back in the winter... Thanks Fanatyk Co....
Monday, Jan 01 2018 6:32 PM Thanks
I had a really great boot fitting with Ryan. He was super friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Thanks!
Sunday, Dec 31 2017 7:50 AM Great Fitting. Boots are perfect
Jamie fitted me with the perfect boot on the first try. I had no idea what a properly fitted boot was like. I had very slight tightness in the toe box on one side after skiing for a couple of days, which was fixed with a quick drop-in visit. You guys are pros!
Tuesday, Dec 26 2017 9:47 AM Happy Feet
Scott did a great job adjusting my intuition liners. My feet have changed quite a bit since I got them and he was able to remedy the "changes"!
Monday, Dec 25 2017 12:37 PM Great bootfitters
The locals #1 choice for boot fitting and great gear.
Friday, Dec 22 2017 12:23 PM Mr.
I had my boots which I bought elsewhere re-fitted with a custom orthotic which made all of the difference in the world. Kobai, one of the experts at Fanatyk took the measurements for my canting angles and after a trial run with temporary shims to correct an error in physiological geometry, shimmed my left boot and fixed a problem I had been skiing with for 60 years. It was like a breath of fresh air! I will go back to him when it is time to change equipment. The service was excellent as was his expertise in his field.
Saturday, Dec 16 2017 10:25 AM I literally couldn't ski without Fanatykco
These guys are THE BEST. I have a very tricky leg/ankle due to several plates and 17 screws and I haven't been able to ski comfortably for two winters, despite numerous tweaks to my gear. I decided to give it one more shot and buy new boots with FantaykCo. Jamie spent TWO days helping me with new boot fit (that's before I even skied witj them) and was very patient, dillegent and attentive to detail. I will probably be back to have them tweaked a bit more as the season goes on, but without these guys and their fitting expertise, I wouldn't be able to ski at all. Thank you Jamie, for all your help. Come ski near Smithers some time! :)
Wednesday, Dec 13 2017 1:54 PM Solid
Great personal service. Genuine, knowledgeable crew. I’ve got problem feet and these boots are going to let me enjoy skiing. Thanks, Kevin! Only thing missed was boot care & cleaning etc. These are my first boots so in hindsight I should have asked about caring for my investment.
Saturday, Dec 09 2017 12:34 PM Boot Fitting
Always great service from Fanatyk. Third pair of boots I have bought from them. Skilled boot fitters and good service.
Friday, Dec 08 2017 10:20 AM Thanks Fanatyk Co Staff
The staff at Fanatyk Co excels at what they do and they always go way beyond what good customer service means. I will always come back to Fanatyk Co for the best products, service and information. Thanks Fanatyk Co for always making my feet so happy!
Thursday, Nov 30 2017 6:50 PM Great service, great knowledge, great result
I brought in pre-bought boots for fitting. They gave me a very honest opinion, took 2 hrs with me, fit them perfectly, made me feel at home and the end result was perfect. First time that my first day on ski boots was completely pain free.
Tuesday, Jan 24 2017 8:31 PM Best Boot Fit Ever!
Thanks so much FanatykCo for making me and my feet soooooo happy! Everyone in the shop is always friendly and helpful. You guys provide an amazing service! You are definitely the best! Thank you!
Tuesday, Jan 24 2017 4:01 PM New foot beds - heaven in ski boots
My old foot beds had completely disintegrated. I had forgotten that my ski boots were once so comfortable. Shayne was great. Friendly and very professional and now with new foot beds my boots feel amazing.
Friday, Jan 20 2017 11:03 PM Exceptional Customer Service
Rather than sell me a ski boot that wasnt appropriate, the team at Fanatyk assessed my feet, and spent a fair bit of time with me explaining the issues with me feet, the challenges associated in finding the right boot, and referred me to another store and fitter who could possibly help me. Great bunch of guys, absolutely recommend a visit to Fanatyk if you're after ski gear, especially boots, they know there stuff.
Wednesday, Jan 18 2017 6:17 PM Boot fit
Had a boot fit with Scotty this afternoon. He was extremely friendly and on top of it at all times.<
