Bootfitter recommendation in Beaver Creek?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Can anyone recommend a great bootfitter (or more than one) in Beaver Creek? 

 

I have a pair of boots I bought when skiing Snowbird at the end of last season.  I've now put enough days on them that I think it's time to get the painful issues attended to.  And I'll be in Beaver Creek all next week with my kids, so I'll have the time to ski on whatever adjustments are made.  Is there someone you would recommend in Beaver Creek village (or Avon, even), or do I need to head to Vail?

 

My feet are a bit of a wreck (flat, pronate, etc), but should be well within the norms of what a good bootfitter is used to.

 

Thanks for any advice!

Let me finish off this thread by following up with my experience:

 

I took everyone's advice, and while Greg couldn't give me an appointment, he hooked me up with Chris Wiberg who is also at skibootfitting.com in the Vail Village.  I cannot say enough good things about Chris -- he is absolutely a miracle worker.  I've been skiing with pain in my feet ever since high school at least (20+ years).  The pain would usually be really bad by lunchtime, especially if I skied a lot of bump runs.  After getting my boots fit by Chris, in one day I skied 32,000 vertical feet (gotta love that Epic Pass tracking) of bumped out blacks and double-blacks with no foot pain whatsoever.  And, no knee pain and no lower back pain.

 

Chris also hooked my wife up with a new pair of boots and did her fitting.  She, too, skied pain-free for the first time ever.

 

So, EpicSki folks, thanks for the advice -- and anyone reading this who goes to Vail should look up Chris.

Yeah I heard about your fall from Little Stevey Cohen. Saw him at Loon/NSRA.
