Customized bootfitter in colorado needed for daughter with severe leg length discrepancy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi. My name is Marci and I am the mother of Maya, who was born with a rare genetic disorder that caused one of her legs to be much longer and bigger than her other normal leg. She is completely normal in all ways except for her leg length discrepancy (whatever normal means😊). Her older brothers ski and snowboard and now she will be seven and is ready to learn to ski or snowboard. I am in need of a bootfitter who can either build a boot with a lift or build up a ski for next season. She has about a five centimeter difference. For her regular shoes we have a lift made at children hospital in Denver. The lift they add to her left shoe is about 3 centimeters. Any contacts or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

might be better to snowboard, as the leg length will be more of a forward/back balance issue then a front to back? (and maybe you can just ignore the LLD)

if she is skiing, then 10mm inside the boot, and another 5mm in boot lifter, and then lift the bindings 10mm too.

 

No idea where to send you for this work in CO.
