really, there is only 1 bootfitter in vermont in the who's who?!

I even used the wayback machine to check that list in years past. It has not changed. I thought there was a good guy at stowe-inner bootworks - Benny?

or how about northern ski works in killington - Matt, Dave?

or how about bootpro in okemo?

 

Does anyone have experience? How are people selected for inclusion in the who's who?

Bwana.

 

To be on the "Who's who" list, we have to be willing to put in the time to answer questions on the forum,  the pay is kind of minimum wage ;) ---at the present, only  one fitter is doing that in Vt, that does not mean there aren't any other fitters there---where are you looking to go in VT, perhaps we could suggest someone.

as mike says that is the list of fitters who are on the panel to answer questions  the problems of getting the right people are interesting, we want all those answering to be at a level where they actually do this stuff day in day out, and doing it right (we we hope we are) so some criteria were set up to stop the Saturday boy from being given the keys to the castle.... add to that that it is not minimum wage, it is no wage, all the fitters are doing this to promote good boot fitting and to educate skiers about good boot fitting, with a bit of luck they all pick up a little business from it but it certainly isn't much.

 

the guys at GMOL are great, or Benny at inner boot works or race stock sports or a whole number of fitters that i don't know about (i am in the UK answering )

 

good luck getting sorted, we would love more fitters to be involved but those that we have had apply in the past 12 months have all been in it to self promote rather than educate
