Any good bootfitters in Oregon?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Anyone know of a good bootfitter in Oregon? I already went to someone who played around with my cants, which didn't help. My left foot points outward about 30 degrees, while my right foot points outward 10 degrees, and my left knee is knock-kneed (right knee is fine). It affects my countering movements and how much I can pressure the left ski, as well as inside ski tracking. Anyways, if anyone has the name of a good bootfitter who understands how to correct anatomical problems (rather than just put someone neutral in their stance via plumb) I would appreciate their name!

Try Bob Olson in White Salmon, WA or come to Seattle and see Jim Mates.

Second on Jim Mates. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] The guy knows boots and understands human biomechanics. Tell him the Rat sent you.

Thanks, Rat, for not changing your tag line to whatever it was the Maddog suggested last night. That was fairly nasty, as I recall dimly.

Scott Holmer, The Race Place in Bend. This is according to the list of master bootfitters lcoated on this web site.

Nasty? Nothing nasty has ever come from my "pure as the driven snow" lips. But as to bootfitters in Oregon, Portland sure could use one!
