    Hi all!
    I have friends at Falls right now who are contemplating buying their own boots.
    Anyone have any recommendations for me for boot fitting at Falls? Or should they leave it to Feb in Hirafu and hit up Boot Solutions?

    Do you have wonky feet or special requirements eg orthotics etc?

    I got my previous boots at Yogi's (in the Hub) but otherwise you could try Winterhaven. Had to get the shell ground out & heated to fit my wide toe but no issues until they died.

    Yogi's daughter Renja has taken over the reins. She just fitted my son up for a pair of boots last week and I was very impressed. She's a great lady and I think has spent a lot of time learning from her Dad's vast experience.
