Here's the scoop. After getting in only 6 days this season, my shin splints are starting to act up again. I first started noticing pain last year and quickly replaced my boots with a newer, less stiff option (Rossi Race 1). The new boot was fitted at a very reputable boot fitter, SureFoot in Park City, and was very expensive (footbeds the whole deal), and time consuming (3+ hours). Initially I thought that it was the stiff boot that was causing the problem, now however, I have learned that it is just a common ski injury. Is this a bunch of crap? I am in pretty good shape, and have no prior history of shin splints. How do I get rid of this annoyance? Do I go back to the bootfitter, work out more, or what? I'm starting to walk funny and it hurts to flex my boots when I ski.
