Vail Daily letter: Great ski shop

Women looking for comfort and performance skiing:

Last year I purchased a pair of skis from Jeannie Thoren’s Women’s Ski Center. Both Jeannie and Tom worked tirelessly with me to ensure that I would be purchasing the perfect pair of skis for me, considering my height, weight, center of gravity and skiing ability. I had a wonderful ski season on my new skis.

This year I went to Jeannie Thoren’s Women Ski Center in Lionshead Village with the intent to purchase a new pair of ski boots. They tried many types of boots on me until they found the right ones. I have some issues with my feet. I have neuropathy and bunions. Tom developed a foot bed that would take the pressure off the sensitive areas. What I have found through this experience is that both Jeannie and Tom will work with you until you are completely satisfied with your equipment. Their knowledge and expertise has given me the opportunity to find a pair of high-performance ski boots that are comfortable and allow me to ski a full day without pain or discomfort. Their desire, dedication and determination to provide women with a positive ski experience beginning with the right equipment is extraordinary. I could not imagine ever having as comfortable skiing experience as I am now having without Jeannie and Tom. I cannot express my gratitude enough to the Women’s Ski Center for giving me the opportunity to ski all day pain free.
