Edit: since it's not exactly new technology, I wonder how many resort shops are still ill-equipped to replace a boa system? It seems as if every major resort would have the parts and knowledge by now.
None of the shops or resorts around here know anything. But replacing any of the boa parts is really easy. Best to simply buy a spare cable when you buy the boots (if they don't come with a spare).
