Local Business Spotlight: DRY-X Boot Dryers


One of my favorite things about living in Park City is the thriving community of local independent businesses. I love supporting these businesses whenever I have the chance by shopping local and spreading the word.

From time to time, I highlight some of my favorites on the blog through Local Business Spotlight, whether it’s a coffee shop, an art gallery, or locally-based global companies like Backcountry.com.


Business: DRY-X Boot Dryers

What DRY-X Does: Produces custom boot dryers so our feet stay warm and dry all winter long

Established: October 2000

History: Owner George Fox first came up with his concept in the winter of 2000 while working at a local ski shop in Park City. “People kept coming in and asking if anyone offered a custom boot drying solution,” he remembers.

It took Fox about five years to research and design his products, which range from individual units to large commercial systems. But the design process isn’t over yet. “To this day, we are still designing and perfecting our products,” says Fox. “It is a constant evolution of perfection.”

Why I Love DRY-X: Every single component of DRY-X boot dryers is totally customizable. From how it’s mounted, to size and color, the customer gets to design their ultimate product. DRY-X will amp up any mud or gear room. Of course, I ordered mine in my favorite energetic color: Racer Green. Fittingly, it arrived and was installed on St. Patrick’s Day.

What Fox Loves About Park City: “I love all the physical outdoor activities that I can do in and around Park City. The weather is great and the views are awesome!”
