Cade2They will probably rape you with prices, I'd go to a local ski shop instead
lwgpGive them a call and ask the staff?
lwgpAlso true. I work at a shop and the most we'd charge for that would be like 10 bucks.the fact is my local ski shop charge me more than REI, last time they want to charge me $90 for binding installation so i brought them to REI and had it done for $60 or 65
OregonDeadSpend some time doing the research and find an expert boot guy with a good reputation. I finally did that and had my boots worked on and it is awesome. I'm so much more comfortable and I feel like a pro since I have a real pro boot guy that has real pro clients. Going to buy some shells he recommended and get him to make me custom boots now. Really way less expensive than I ever thought it would be and less than REI will charge to f up your boots. If you are around Mt. Hood let me know and I'll give you his # otherwise just use the google and find out who the real pro WC guys go to and find their cell number and just slide on in to their schedule.
on99thanks for your opinion, my local boot fitter isn't really good imo, and i don't want to give them a second try, i did some google and didnt find any reputable boot fitter around my area, i live at brooklyn ny
OregonDeadYeah. I have not had good luck with guys at retail shops either. Sounds like the shops in your area are lame and overpriced. $90 for a mount is 2 to 3 times what a good shop charges here. REI might be your best bet but I'd try to scope out the tech doing the work to make sure he seems like he knows what's up.
