    Question for shop people

    When are the new boots pretty much fully stocked up? I'm thinking mid October, right?
    Want to have a good selection in my size. I've always waited too long.

    You've already waited too long. Try again next year.
    Doesn't mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.

    Depends on the shop and geographic location and their terms with the manufacturers.

    city shops = now

    resort shops = Oct/Nov (depending on when the local hill opens)

    I'd say early October. I work for a large online outdoor retailer and we are just starting to get this seasons ski gear.

    A novel idea would be to call the shop which carries the boot you are interested in

    I've done that. Last year, too. You don't exactly get good phone attitude from pre season shop rats, if the boss is not there. Except for Hal at Northern Ski Works at Killington. He is the best.

    Most brands receive winter stock in August- our retailers have orders set to ship in September (usually mid month), so you'll typically see it available at the end of the month, depending on location (I'm sure some local shops are still trying to milk the summer business)
