Recommendation for boot Canting/Alignment shop in Breckenridge

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I need a great boot shop in Breck. I am always dealing with right boot issues and here in Pittsburgh Pa I have been to all the "experts" who all suggest I need to see the real experts out west. I am heading to Breck in February and would appreciate any recommendations for a good boot shop to possibly help me with canting,shaving,alignment issues.

My problem is that my right foot/boot never feels good and I am always feeling out of alignment and I can never transfer power to my edges. Basically my my foot constantly is asleep because I have to keep the boot tight to get any bit of response out of it. If I loosen the boot at all, I lose a tremendous amount of power and responsiveness. In addition my boot and ski are never aligned properly and my right ski is always chattering and I am constantly adjusting my ankle/foot position to get my right leg on track. I know there is a real problem because my left foot is excellent in all categories and I find myself relying on my left leg 75% of time. I essentially cannot get any better at skiing until I resolve this problem.

I am 32 and have only been skiing for 3 years but have picked it up quickly and can ski just about anything at Breck and Copper Mountain. I have never sustained any acute injury to the leg, ankle, foot that is giving me issues and I am in a Technica Diablo boot with K2 PE sticks. Also I am in my 2nd boot in 3yrs. I know there is a break in period but the shops back here have tried to get me into a more advanced boot and the techs have put probably 4hrs into my current boots that I have been in for the last 2yrs.

Many thanks, all comments appreciated!

I take offence to the notion that the "real" experts are only out west, there are some great boot fitters in other parts of the country/world. However in Breck I reccomend you see Jeff Bergerion (sp?) at Boot Fixation.

No offense but the guys here that call themselves the experts told me to go see the real experts. I am not throwing you or anyone else under the bus. I am using the comments made to me by several ski shops in my particular location. Take it easy and enjoy your christmas

All BS aside, go see Jeff he will do right by you. You should make an appointment though he is pretty booked.
