Ski Gear Dryers

At Williams Direct Dryers, we offer specialized ski gear dryers that are essential for maintaining the performance and comfort of ski and snowboarding equipment. Designed to effectively dry ski boots, ski gloves, and other gear, our direct dryers help ensure that athletes and enthusiasts can enjoy their time on the slopes without discomfort or equipment issues. The ski boot dryers we offer are engineered to provide even and efficient drying, preventing the buildup of moisture that can lead to unpleasant odors and potential bacterial growth. By thoroughly drying ski boots, our dryers help maintain the integrity and longevity of the footwear for optimal performance and comfort during use.

In addition to ski boots, Williams Direct Dryers also excels at drying other winter gear like ski gloves. Our ski boot and glove dryers help ensure that gloves are completely dry. In doing so, they help eliminate the discomfort of damp gloves and reduce the risk of cold hands, which can hinder performance and enjoyment on the slopes. For snowboarders, our dryers offer the same level of efficiency, quickly drying snowboarding boots and gear to help ensure that equipment is ready for the next run. The overall design of our ski gear dryers prioritizes ease of use and reliability, making them an indispensable asset for ski resorts, rental shops, and individual enthusiasts looking to help keep their gear in top condition.

In Locker Dryers


User selected gently warmed or ambient temperature air is delivered to the hardest and furthest part of the garment to dry first then spreading throughout the apparel. Drying air is generated via a blower situated in the lower manifold of the dryer. Drying air is warmed about 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit as it is passes across a user controlled finned stainless heater. When selected, the warming technology delivers drying air up the vertical risers, out the drying arms and into the garment(s). Drying arms are optimized and specific to apparel. For example, boot drying arms can be used for gloves but are optimized for boot/shoe drying.

Customer Reviews

We went full force with the dryer (a Williams Direct Dryers model WS5) the other day after an incident and my staff is just absolutely amazed at the ease, the operation and the speed of your unit. I can't thank you enough. Again, we love the unit. Enjoy your day!

Staff Line Coordinator Jervis

The Model RM8 that we purchased is of the finest quality and workmanship that I have seen in a long time. Desmond Mayne was very helpful and courteous in answering any and all questions we had regarding this product. The unit is very "User Friendly" and effective in mask drying. Keep up the good work.

Lt. Scott A. Clifford , East Putnam Fire Dpt, CT

This unit is doing a fantastic drying job. The gear feels like it was naturally dried which leaves it soft and pliable. After our washing and drying you would think the gear was new right out of the bag.
