Anyhow, I'll be scheduling an appointment with somebody soon, so I'm open to any thoughts on who I should call. Thanks.
I recommend you go to GMOL. Greg is one of the best bootfitters in the country. IMO a great bootfitter is not a guy who grinds and punches the shell of a boot. He has to be an alighment specialist. He must master fore/aft balance issues. Greg knows these things. You would be surprised to know that some things are not what they seem to be. For example, how many bootfitters would choose the Tecnica XT over the newer Tecnica models? Not many. And believe me they have their reasons. Another bootfitter like Greg is Jeff Bergeron. He also likes the XT more than the new Diablo consumer and true plugs.
it is your choice but one ski day can be important, especially at the beginning of the season.
