Over the past 20 years I have seen 4 different bootfitters to get ski boot alignment issues resolved. Each bootfitter has tried something different. Nothing has really fully worked.
For my most recent attempt, I purchased new boots, had new orthotics made, and had some boot sole planing done. We started gradually with the boot sole planing and worked our way up.
With no boot sole planing, I was totally on both inside edges and could not get the skis to run flat----the skis were in a wedge and each of the turns was not happening symmetrically. Different canting chips were used and I was asked to go out and ski and report back. With 1 degree high on the outside for both boots, there was little difference versus nothing. With 2 degree high on the outside, the right ski flattened out but the left was still tracking heavy on the inside edge. By altering just the left boot with additional canting chips, this forced the right boot to work its way back on the inside edge. At 2 degrees on both boots, right turns were a little difficult. When 3 degrees heavy on the outside canting chips were used, the turns in both directions seemed equal and easy but the right boot was tracking slightly on the inside again and the left boot was slightly heavier on the inside edge---this seemed like the best set up so I had the boots planed this way---3 degrees heavy on the outside of both boots. 3.5 degrees was counter-productive when tested.
While skiing with this new set up, I notice that on left turns, the downhill right ski will shake. I did not really notice this during the on hill canting chip test.
I mentioned to the boot fitter that I may have a leg length discrepancy but this issue has not been addressed yet. If my right leg is slightly shorter than my left, can this be a reason for the right ski shaking after I make the left turn?
Any suggestions as to other issues that may be going on?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
