So we see a lot here people asking for advice on boots but more often then not the best respomse we can offer is go see a good fitter. But how do you know who is actually good and who is just in it for the money.
I would like like to compile a list of currently working fitters who people have had great succsess with. Ideally we can create a list which can help people locate te best fitter in their area easier.
If you have had good experiences post them up. I will update this thread with names and locations. You can give bad experiences too as obviously these can be useful but I don't think it's right to hav a list of bad fitters.
So to start off I will do the uk an whistler as these are the areas I know.

Jules is one of the best fitters in the world. He is a qualified podiatrist and knows more about feet and boots then anyone I know. He does not fit often these days but you will catch him at the London ski show and if you contact his clinic you may convince him to work with you.

I worked with eddie for a few years at cas. He is an ex pro and has a lot of knowledge. If you are in the north go see him.
i have worked as a fitter for over a decade now. I specialize in custom foot beds toachieve the best fit possible And minimize the amount of shell and liner work required. I have worked with some of the top pros but I'm more then happy to help anyone with issues they have. I enjoy a challenge and enjoy helping people get back to skiing who have had potentially skiing ending injuries.

I worked with ernie for a for a few seasons and he is an awsome fitter. He is an olde dude by don't let that put you off he knows his stuff. His footbeds are good and he knows his boots. has some awsome stories too.
Well that is my start. I would love you guys to post up fitters who have gone above and beyond. I'll edit this post to update with more people.
Hopefully this this can become an awsome resource.
