Going to ski center in DC. This is basically my first season skiing, and my first real ski gear purchase. Is there anything I should know about what I'm looking for before walking in? Obviously the fitter will make sure the boot fits properly but is there anything I should be able to tell him about the type of boot I want/need?
Getting fitted for boots next tuesday
Wiki? I read the fag/terms and glossary if that's what you are referring to.
I guess I just want to know if I need to be prepared to answer any questions or if the boot fitter will just know and take care of everything. Oh, and should I bring my own pair of ski socks?
bring your own socks, and a REALLY thin pair, bring any footbeds that you use, or like
dont go in with ideas of what will, or wont fit you. see what fits.
Well I own a new pair of boots (and "conformable" footbeds). Lange RX110 in 25.5 (my first pair of rentals were 28.5, after which I moved to 27.5). The right boot feels great. In the store, the left felt uncomfortably tight in the forefoot, but he didn't want to adjust the shell until I wore the boots for several hours and "broke in" the liner to see if it went away. What I didn't notice in the store is that the bend at my left ankle (between the lower vertical buckle and the top horizontal buckle) is also uncomfortable/painful after wearing them for a long time (30+minutes). Also appears to be the case with the right, but nowhere near as bad. The toes on my left foot also seem to get a little numb after extended periods. I believe I've done my best to make sure I'm not overtightening, and I don't think it is the case. I haven't gotten to ski in them yet, but the next time I'm skiing will be a 5 day trip to Canada in 2 weeks and I really want to get them locked in before that.
I've worn them around my house for probably 10 hours at this point, should I go ahead and take them in to get adjusted?
Oh, and thanks for the help :D

I can but I'd just as soon drive, it is only 25 minutes. I guess I just want to know what the problem is/how easy of a fix it is before going. And also if I should allow additional time to pack out the liners. I'm going to Mont Tremblant. Thanks again, you've been helpful.
