Cdn national team Boot Fitter in Canmore

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone could tell me who the boot fitter is in Canmore that works on a lot of the national team boots? & what shop they work at.
Thanks,
Mike

His supreme blowhard has left the area. Never was sure how much work he did for any nat'l team members he actually did and how much he just spouted about the one or two.

LOL
So you are in the area then?
Do you know any good boot fitters in southern alberta?
Lou comes highly recommended but as I understand it, he doesnt sell many brands and would thus have to order something else in - you would likely pay retail for the boots & fitting on top of that price i guess - whereas normally fittings are included in the retail price @ stores with the boots in stock but marginally qualified boot fitters.

Lou's brand selection is a bit slim and you're right about the boot then fit costs. It was the same in Canmore mind you, he carried no boots at all. Brian at GS can take care of you but you should hurry if you want it this year. Ultimate is winding down but Dave should be there a bit more once he gets back and there was another fella who should do alright by you if he's still around (at Ultimate as well). I'm pretty much out of the game now and live in Cochrane now. You're nearby or just coming for a visit?

WOuld you happen to know which of those stores carry atomic?
I have obviously not been in the purchasing scene for awhile and only ever bought through technosport and ski cellar - what stores are the GS and Ultimate that you refer to?

I live in Calgary so pretty much anywhere in southern alberta will work for me.
Thanks for the help,
Mike

GS in Banff has Atomic and Brian works there. I'm not sure how deep they carry the line though. Which boot are you looking for? Monod's has a wider selection of models but don't really get into the bootfitting so much.

i am interested in the RT models - would like to try them on before picking between Ti & CS though. Are you aware of whether they carry these 2?
