Elissa DeGolyer


Elissa DeGolyer gets about 50 days in per year and is one of the bootfitters at our Inner Bootworks shop in Stowe. This is Elissa’s second year testing skis with us, and we appreciate her skiing skills as well as her analysis. She’s a pretty aggressive skier, as indicated by her 11++ self-rated level. Having learned to ski at the modest slopes in Swain, NY, Elissa has a tremendous amount of respect for the sport of skiing. Her favorite skier is Benny Wax, manager at Inner Bootworks, and a role model to many. Elissa shreds the snow on her Nordica Santa Ana 100’s and her Enforcer 93’s. Her high-energy approach to skiing doesn’t quite jive with her wanting to be a Sloth, but we’re willing to let that discrepancy slide. You’ll find her making Vermont beautiful during the summer at her gardening gig, and when she’s not doing that, she loves downhill mountain biking.
