Default Looking for a good ski boot fitter in van/nvan

Hi there, just wondering if anyone knew of a good boot fitter in the van area, ive just made the transition from snowboarding to skiing this winter and find the rental boots not too my liking, im not looking for AT boots as im not at that level yet, just looking for a good pair of boots for the beginner skier. I dont mind shelling out for a good pair of boots and buying used skis.

Thank you, much appreciated.

Intuition liners have an awesome boot tech I've heard. Drop them a line. You're going to spend a lot of coinage on boot fitting but it's worth it when you're able to spend a full day with no pain in your feet. If the bootfitter doesn't take off your socks and do a pretty in depth exam of your feet I'd walk away. It's all about fitting the shell to your foot so don't get tricked by fancy liners, foam or vacuum fit; those all work great as long as the hard shell is fitted to your specific foot.

Paul Gardiner fitted my tecnica demons at the Swiss sports haus and I'm three years into the boots with no complaints.
