My brother is flying in to SLC to ski at Snowbird, and has convinced me to go with him and try skiing again. I stopped skiing years ago because my boots started hurting my feet, and I didn't have the money to buy new ones. Rentals hurt even worse than my old boots. My brother says with new ski boots, and a good boot fitter, I'll ski pain-free. I have wide feet, bunions, and fallen metatarsal arches. With orthotics, I can run with no problem and have no problem standing on my feet all day. I'm guessing I'll need a footbed for the boots, as well as modifications done to the shell.
That being said, how do I find a good bootfitter in the SLC area? We'll be skiing at Snowbird, but I'm willing to go wherever to get boots and a good fit. I'm really excited about getting back into skiing, but I know close to nothing about how and where to start. I also don't want to spend more than $600 or so. Any suggestions?
