Since I live in a non-ski town (Chicago) but take a couple of 3-7 day ski trips a year I was wondering where would be the best place to buy boots. Do I go to a local shop that has a decent reputation at the beginning of the season and try to take advantage of the year long fit guarantee and possibly suffer if something is wrong when I get to my destination resort? Or get the boots at a resort at the beginning of a longer ski trip with an expert, well known bootfitter, get the adjustments made during the trip and hope all the kinks are worked out during the trip? What have you done in the past and what have your experiences been?
