Why ski here? Blue Mountain is probably the best value in Eastern Pennsylvania. It has two high-speed, top-to-bottom lifts. That means you can get a ton of skiing in. At nearby mountains like Elk...

This is a great mid week mountain. Plenty of corduroy and no lift lines. They offer mid week deals depending on what state you live in which saves over 30 dollars. Nothing here that is called a...

Bootfitter in Washington DC area
I got my first pair of boots from Brian Deely at Pro-Fit in Leesburg a few weeks ago. I only got to use them twice before my season was out, but I was very pleased with working with Brian... he seemed to conform to everything you'd read on here about getting a properly fitting boot from a good boot-fitter.
We tried several models, shell fit them, talked about how they should feel, wore a couple of models for 15-20 minutes to see how they felt, tried different footbeds... all in all took a couple of hours.
After my first day skiing in them, I got different footbeds, and he also measured/checked my canting and put a tiny shim on the left foot to get my legs positioned better (I have knee issues). He suggested making very minor changes to get things dialed in as I ski in them more.
I only had one more day after that, but so far they're great - we'll see about it more next season.
Have read good things about Brian Eardley at Ski Center for a number of years.
I know at Pro Fit, Brian, who is also the owner, is the guy to deal with. He used to have 2 other great bootfitters there who worked under him but they are out west now. Jeff Harper works with Greg Hoffman at Vail and Derek (can't recall his last name) is in Steamboat at Steamboat Ski and Bike, if I remember correctly.
