Best ski shop in Bozeman. The owner is a great guy, and the quality of their work is excellent. So many beautiful skis on the wall!

I took my boots in for some type of boot fit because I could not ski another day in their torture. Phd skis was extremely helpful and had a quick, reasonably priced fix for my situation. Service was knowledgeable and friendly.

PHD knows their skis and equipment. Stu and Kevin are worth the trip to make certain I have the right equipment and my boots fit. You couldn't ask for better service or folks who truly know skis.

After seeing some of what was written, I had to add my two cents. I've bought skis, boots, bindings, and had them mount bindings on skis not purchased there. Nothing but positive to say. They are professional and friendly as can be. When I call, it's on a first name basis. As far as I'm concerned, they're the best outfit in the valley. I moved here in 1996, and wouldn't trust anyone else. PhD is legit, and when people mention Stu, understand how long he's been there, which is a long time. I have nothing but thanks and respect for PhD. I wouldn't shop anywhere else in Bozeman.

Great local shop with tons of knowledge about new gear, boot fitting & ski tuning. Stu runs a great shop. From beginners to local shredders this crew has you covered. Thanks for the great fit and stellar tune!!


Great local shop, really know there stuff. Very knowledgeable.

Today was our first time in the shop. I'll never go anywhere else! It was SO NICE to finally have a shop that respected my daughter.
In our experience, with the other shops in town, we have come to find that they are sufficient, but our experience today confirms that we have had crappy service at ALL of the other shops in town.
Kevin treated my daughter like an adult, broke down our questions without making us feel stupid, and didn't make us feel like we had to buy anything. He offered straight-up help and guidance without any expectation of us. AND he was a totally sincere! ( I swear to god, if another tech talks to me and my daughter with a sense of machismo, I'll... I'll... but this isn't the point. PhD. Ski's and Kevin treated us like skiers. They made us feel a part of the crew.).
All in all, I'm so grateful for todays shopping experience! Stoked on the quality gear! Stoked on the new knowledge! Stoked on Ph.D Skis!

Stu and the guys at PhD always treat us right. They do a good job of not pressuring you to buy and focus more on making sure that you're going to be happy with your purchase in the long run. I just got a new pair of boots from them only 2 years after buying Black Diamond boots at another shop in town. The BD's were poorly fit and I should have gone to PhD in the first place, I won't make that mistake again.

Really knowledgeable sales staff, asked me about my skiing and guided me into a great pair of boots. Also let me demo the potential skiis to make sure I got the perfect set.

Stu custom modeled some boots for me today. He has great attention to detail; examining the contours of my feet and was able to produce a great fit. The doctor and Justin were working, laughing and having fun. The team creates a low pressure environment to learn about equipment. Highly recommended!

A solid choice if you're looking for a range of choices for skiing at a resort. Excellent boot fitters, including custom work.
If you need backcountry or cross country gear, look elsewhere.


Very knowledgeable! I have really weird shaped feet and never managed to find fitting ski boots. Kevin worked hard to get the boots to fit. He got close, but in the end it didn't work out. He refunded the money. Such good customer service that I didn't end up with a boot my feet are not happy with. Thank you!

First time buying ski boots. Kevin (the owner) explained the difference in flex, etc. and the mistakes that other retailers make when getting people into a pair of boots. They really know their stuff here and want to make sure that the equipment you purchase from them is the best for you.
