Moving to aspen in Dec and gonna buy my first pair of new boots. I hear he is one of the best but it sounds like it is going to be around $1000 possibly including the custom insoles. I have only been on skiis for 25 days or so but am hooked and while I do not have much money, I do not mind paying for a great service it pays off. Gave him a call and he seems very honest as he suggested going to a discount store to buy the boots and bringing them to his shop to get fitted. My question is if it matters who sizes you up for the initial boot that much if you are going for custom insoles anyway. In other words, are there advantages to buying your boots at the place that is going to fit them to give some cohesiveness to the whole operation. I will not have a car when I move up there so I may be out of luck when it comes to finding a bargin on the shells in Aspen in Dec anyway so I may be better suited just getting it done in one place. Also, is there any other bootfitter in Aspen/Snowmass area that has as good of a reputation as bootech. Sorry for the ramble, any help would be great, I am completely in the dark here.
