Hi new to the boards. I'm journeying into actually getting passes and my own equipment this year after sporadic bits of skiing over the years. I had a mid foot fusion last December and I'm looking to get back to the slopes this season. (Taking advantage of the Epic Schoolkids pass for my kids). The trouble is that of the 7 screws in my foot, one of the screw heads is very close to the surface of the top of my foot. You can see and feel the bump it makes on the top of the first metatarsal (the foot bone leading into the big toe). Thankfully I can get my foot into my Salomon Quest Access boots however that pesky screw creates quite the pressure point.
I'm looking for some advice on how to relieve a pressure point that doesn't involve buying new boots or getting the screw removed. I'm an extremely casual skier and this year will be mostly focused on teaching my kiddos to ski. I'm hoping that heat moulding the boots will help but wondering if there are any other suggestions. TIA
