So my buddy has size 30 boots. In my opinion they should be around 27 - 27.5, He agrees they're too big, but new boots are absolutely out of the budget for this season. What are the techniques he can employ to get a bit more snug of a fit? Tape on the liner? Double socks? Advice is appreciated, thanks.

with a boot which is potentially 3 shell sizes too big there is not an awful lot which is going to make them better, you could chuck the kitchen sink in there and he probably wouldn't notice volume reducers, liner padding, double socks might take up a bit of space but will give a really woolly feel to the whole thing.... is there a second hand ski sale at a local ski club in the near future, maybe he could get something real cheap there to see him through, or even rent if he does not ski much.... pretty much any boot in the correct size is going to be better than trying to do anything with this
Colin covered the issues pretty well, but I will add that this person is compensating for all this extra room--------
and the definition for COM-PEN-SATE is: to make up for (something unwelcome or unpleasant) by exerting an opposite force or effect.
That does not sound like fun to me----- and skiing is supposed to be fun, isn't it??? Just saying.
