Sorry for the double post, but I just remembered my boot fitter's name... Chadwick

He was outstanding and knew the fit details for every boot in his inventory. He offered 3 pair, and I ended up with the first one I tried on (Salomon xPro 90), but was still in the store for about 3 hours dialing it in. I was so over the moon that my wife went back the next weekend and had him fit a pair for her. She has been equally happy with his expertise.

Chadwick was amazing, but everyone in that department is highly skilled. An instructor at Sierra-at-Tahoe recommended the place and it was perfect. I've had trouble with boots before, but not this pair. One tiny hotspot the first day, but it was gone the next. I've never loved a pair of ski boots before, but these are the perfect boot for me and a perfect fit. I'm a firm believer that as your boots go, so goes your skiing.

UPDATE: Bud Heishmann - Snowwind Sports- has moved to a new location in the Reno area.
17025 Mount Rose Highway
Reno,NV 89511
(775) 323-9463

About 15 minutes from Mt. Rose and 15 from downtown Reno.
I highly recommend him. I just had boots done by him and he is also a national rep for boot doc liners which are the reason I went to him.

I want to give a massive shoutout to Alexis over at Start Haus in Truckee, CA. I went to see her after my boots (which I got from CalSkiCo only 3 years ago) completely padded out and became horrifically big. She was able to diagnose the issue immediately and set me up with new Nordica boots which fit me like a wonderfully firm handshake! Highly recommend.

Additional Comments: I don't know about the shop downtown, but the one on Bogus Basin Road. Any one of the team there and you're in good hands. If they are stumped, or your foot needs something a little extra, they get Chuck. Chuck's amazing, and he's got a great crew!

Additional Comments: Start Haus has three boot fitters that made the nations top 10 list two years in a row. They have a full staff of bootfitters on and a crazy busy boot bench beginning in September through the winter.
Call if you want an apt with someone specific, or stop in and see who you get. All of them are great fitters, some with certain expertise (recreational, race, backcountry, tele, ...)

Claude Swonger, Master Bootfit certified
Ski Net Sports

11378 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, Ca
(818) 505- 1294

Additional Comments: Just got new boots with custom footbeds. He schedules only one fitting per two hour window, so you get his complete attention. (skithesierras)
I am thrilled with his attention to detail. He has an “if you don’t love it, you don’t own it” 12 month guarantee. On the first fitting, he spent an hour on assessment and measurements, fitted me in a boot I love, molded intuition liners, and made custom orthatics. I skied them for about 8 days, then went back for tweak. Claude couldn’t have been nicer! He took his time, adjusted the orthotics, fixed my heel slop, and now the fit is great. (mustski)

Additional Comments: Go during the middle of the day on a weekday for the best service. A major bonus there is you can DEMO their boots with the rental amount going towards the purchase of boots if you do buy some. Try to see Corty or Kevin, who is a pedorthist. (Contesstant)

Additional comments: John owns the place and per his website, they have "a trillion years" of experience. Quite a cheeky bunch. My husband and me purchased boots last year and it made so much difference in our skiing. (SkiBee)

Trillion years could be close! They tweaked and modified my boots in 1988! Ditto DS. That's 22 years ago. (MSL)

Additional Comments: Robbie and Ollie…can't recommend them highly enough for ALL gear. Ollie works the US season as well and BOTH are qualified fitters. If you Do go to Ollie, tell him an Aussie Ski Diva sent you. He MAY recall me as I came into Ajay's all the time.

Loveland Ski Area

Exit 216 Interstate 70
Georgetown, CO 80444
303-569-3203 ext 117 (upstairs sports shop)
Additional Comments: Trina and Sue fixed my boots and greatly improved them, and I now have the footbeds that I knew I needed. An added bonus is being able to have tweaks made through the day, as the sports shop is maybe fifty steps from the end of the two main runs. (If you're going to do this, I'd suggest going on a weekday so you can be seen pretty quickly when you come back in. They get busy on weekends.)

In the Colorado list, the master boot fitter and owner at One Stop Ski Shop is John Kole. We've been going to Steamboat for 20+ years and were so glad to find John and his team. He's helped my guy find the right fit with ZipFit liners for his somewhat problematic feet (narrow heel, high instep, hot spots) and put me in boots (Dalbello boss) that I still love and almost never have to adjust. Over the years John & his team have continued to work with us, tweaking the fit as much as necessary. Tip: Bring them a six pack at the end of a day. :-)
