I am looking to buy my first set of skis and boots. I have several good candidates I am looking at for skis and may post about them when I narrow them down a little bit farther. However, what I am really having problem with is finding a place to get boots. It's a little different to buy skis without trying them on then to buy boots.

I am looking for a ski shop in the Central Indiana area. I live in West Lafayette - Go Boilers! - but I am willing to travel to Indianapolis/Noblesville/Carmel area to get my boots. I really don't want to have to get them at Dick's or any generic place. I went to the Rusted Moon in Broadripple and was going to get boots there, however all they had in my size was way too much boot for me (their sale right now is ridiculous if they have your sizes). Unfortunately my main ski reference is in Utah and hasn't lived in the area for over 15 years.

In case it makes a difference I am a solid type II skier. I don't do bumps. I am 6'1" 245. Can someone please point me in the right direction - this is the only forum I have seen on-line that gets any traffic.
