About Gravity Jones Ski Werks and Orthotic Fabrication
Founded by Adam Greenier in 1998, Gravity Jones Ski Werks is a full service ski shop located in the heart of Vail Colorado at the Vail Transportation Center. We have a full range of ski and snowboard gear for both sale and rent. We stock clothing and accessories as well.
All of our team here at Gravity Jones are top professionals, even outside the shop. All of our employees are ski professionals… some are current Vail instructors and all of us have raced or coached.
We KNOW our sport and are all fanatical about skiing. We ourselves test the equipment we rent, to make sure it meets our own rigorous standards. On the mountain, we also test our waxes, which helps us fine-tune our waxing techniques so that you get the best ride possible. That’s the ski side of the business.
There’s nothing worse than an uncomfortable ski boot. More and more, people came to us with boot fitment problems, or foot pain issues. We started creating custom footbeds for our customers to alleviate their foot problems and improve their skiing performance.
In 2001, Adam Greenier, Gravity’s founder, decided to study pedorthics (the study of foot mechanics and foot appliance construction). He became board certified in November of 2001 and soon after, Gravity Jones Orthotic Fabrication was formed. Mr. Greenier has trained many technicians and professionals since then and he has given lectures around the country at universities and athletic organizations.
Gravity Jones has the only Board Certified Pedorthists in Vail Village. We now produce some of the finest corrective foot devices and appliances in the country. While we do in fact still make many, many custom footbeds, our orthotic fabrication is contracted through physicians. They examine you, determine your needs and write a prescription for your specific appliance, which we, at Gravity Jones fill, just like a pharmacist, by creating the specific appliance they have prescribed.
