Bootfitters in Austria (preferably in Serfaus-Fiss-Laudis)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

We (wife and 2 kids 8 and 4) are currently living in Germany and will be headed to Austria for a ski week.  I was thinking about buying boots for my wife and I.  We don't ski much, maybe only 1-2 weeks a year but I figured I'd spend the money on boots to get that nice comfortable fit that I've always been jealous of :)  Of course, we're not looking to spend a fortune as we really don't ski very much.

 

We are both recreational skiers - probably a 7 on the rating scale.  We are mostly interested in comfort rather than the ultimate performance as we stick to the groomers and rarely go onto the black runs.

 

2 questions

 

1) Any recommendations for boot fitters near Searfaus - Fiss - Laudis?  This is likely where we will be skiing for the next few years so I thought it would make sense to buy from a shop near here.

 

2) What is a reasonable budget for a comfortable boot and boot fitting?  I'd like to keep the budget to around 250 Euro per person but don't know if that's even in the ballpark.  I have no idea how much these things cost.

 

Thanks for any advice all!

 

Russell

Buy ur boots in EU. Right now the AU dollar is strong and ski and boots are very expensive. In fact it cheaper for AU folks to buy the skis in EU and pay for the shipping.  If you still need a bootfitter log on to Bootfitters.com and check for the Aussie connections.

Jeffrey,

 

I think you might have mis-read Austria as Australia ;)

 

Unfortunately I checked bootfitters.com and there are no Austrian bootfitters listed.
