Anyone know any good shops in this area? I need some new gear and would like to see a reputable boot fitter if possible
I live in Boston and ride in NH/VT. In the Boston metro area I can't think of any awesome bootfitters. East Coast Alpine has a TON of selection though (they're main store is on Commonwealth Ave near Boston University). Prices are high, buts they're right in the city so thats to be expected.
Darkside is a good store - there's a few of them around. Killington, Stowe and Okemo. They cater to snowboarders, its pretty much a snowboard-only shop. They'll probably be your best bet for boot fitting.
NOTB in Burlington MA and Salem NH are also supposed to be pretty good outfitters, I've bought gear from them before.
I should clarify, I was up at Killington this weekend and one of the local coaches pointed me to Surefeet, right down the road from the mountain. Excellent service. They added a "moustache" pad to my boot - my heel was slipping a bit.
