Richard did my boots and footbeds and He was very thorough At the time , he was skiing Sundays at Seven Springs and would bring his wedges with him and do an on hill assessment to see if he dialed you in right

His business is now named Peak Ski and Snowboard . HH trained . No doubt knows what he is doing and cares a lot about it too.

I would certainly use him again

I am a huge proponent of checking alignment.  I do want to add a couple qualifiers.   Alignment science is a little like medical school,  "Half of what you learn is wrong, you just don't know which half".  It's easy to measure anatomy,  it's way more difficult to measure physiology and predict ideal function.   I do not believe any alignment work is finished without on snow evaluation by a "qualified" observer.  I also know it's sometimes difficult to predict the perfect solution for everyone's issues.  That said, for anyone whose natural alignment is less than ideal, which is probably on the order of 85% +/-, it will pay huge dividends when significant correction is achieved.   YM

Mud Sweat and Gears. Ask for Pat. Tell him Greg sent you.

 

I'd recommend Richard in Pittsburgh [can also tell him Greg sent you] over Pat though. It isn't so much that Pat is bad... Richard is next-level good [skied and talked with him quite a bit... he's the real deal]... and would probably do an on-snow session, possibly in Ellicottville.
