Any "alignment specialists"/great bootfitters you'd recommend in the Mid-Atlantic?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, as I progress further and further into this great sport we all love, I'm getting more and more convinced that I may need some work done on my boots (and some feedback on my stance, etc).

 

When I walk, my right leg foot points diagonally out, as does my left. (If looking straight down, it looks like my right foot is aimed at 2 o'clock, and my left is aimed at 11 o'clock.)

 

I'm at the point where I am extremely proficient going to the left, I can carve the hardest turn that way and stop on the dime, whereas my right turns are...less proficient. I understand what it is I need to do, and I try to visualize doing it when on the slopes going right, but once I put a great deal of weight on my left leg, it's like I just can't get my right leg to follow and put weight on that outside edge. (Hard to describe, will see if I can post a video...)

 

I'm sure there's an underlying anatomical problem as my knees are definitely not great, and I'm wondering if some time with a great bootfitter may be able to pay off.

 

I checked America's Best Bootfitters site (http://www.bootfitters.com/) but there's nobody near me. 

 

Anyone have resources to point me toward?

 

Thank you!

walking toes out and needing alignment work on your ski boots may not be a 1:1 ratio.
