looking for bootfitter in Snowmass

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am currently in snowmass for a few more days and my sister in law is having a problem with her boots.    One issue that she has is that her foot and legs are very small and it pains her to ski more than 2 hours. 

 

On the lift today a ski instructor mentioned that maybe she needs shims or the boot and bindings might not be leveled properly.

 

Any rec. on a bootfitter locally  would be appreciated.

Thanks for the advice, Jack was awesome!  I cannot believe how detailed he was in making sure the boot fit properly and then tweeking them the following day. In total we spend about 3 hours for the 4 of us.  

I was not surprised to find out I was skiing on 1 size too large boot but my brother and sister in law were skiing on boots two sizes too big.  No wonder why she had pain in her lower leg.

 

I was surprised though how skiing on properly size boots took me a few runs to get used to.  At first is wasnt comfortable and I had to stop half way down a green run and take my boots of for rest.  But after that they felt much better and I noticed the difference in the ski response.

 

Unfortunately I purchased the boots late in the trip and only had one day to use them.

 

So if you are in Snowmass looking for a boot fitter check out Jack.  He is in the building next to Venga Venga and works as a sub contractor aspen snownmass (I believe)
