    North Shore MA Ski Shops?

    Just moved to the North Shore and am looking for a new ski shop. Previously I used Ski Stop in Canton/Westwood and I was very happy with their service (awesome boot fitters), but it is way too far from my new location. Live along 1/1A closer to the NH seacoast than to Boston so looking for somewhere good in that area of MA or Southern NH if anyone has any recommendations.

    Thanks.

    I had a good experience last year with Sun and Ski in Woburn. They set me up on some demo Line Sir Francis Bacon's that I tested during the blizzard last year. Dick Stillson is the manager, I think. He used to run Snow Wizards which I think was up near Magic Mountain.

    I know a lot of people who shop at Putnams' in Portsmouth. In the past I've gone to Buchika's in Salem.

    If you're willing to make the drive to Nashua, Proctor's is by far the best around on prices. The owner, Jeff, is always willing to negotiate and cut a deal.

    Ski Haus in Burlington or Salem. Ask for Steve and tell him I sent you. Call ahead and find out which store is at though.

    He should remember it. He has posted on here before when I told him some woman was slamming his store.

    You recommended the Burlington store for boots before...who is their bootfitter? I work right down the street and I could (unfortunately) use some work to help snug up my boots.

    Steve is the owner and does the fittings. Call ahead and make sure he is there first. Tell him Jamie sent you.

    Most the staff at Ski Haus in Burlington does not know their ass from their elbows. They hire a bunch of kids, presumably for cheap wages.

    I have, however, run into one guy there who knows his stuff. He did a great job on a boot fit.
