    So... I need some shell work done in Zurich. Where do I find a proper bootfitter near Zurich that is doing punches, stretches, etc. and familiar with all the tools and techniques? I understand that they don't do this much in Europe.

    The liner work done by Ruedi-Bergsport was a great suggestion, but I need a little more custom work done, some punches and stretching (and it doesn't look like they do that type of service?). I should have just kept using my old liners, which were a little packed out but seemed to work, but figured I'd start with new liners out here. Should have gotten that sorted back in the US!

    Not that close to ZŁrich but Michael Rieble at Arena Sport in Buochs can get you sorted. You'll need to make an appointment and it will not be inexpensive. Speaks a bit of English if that is a concern.

    Even further from ZŁrich, heierling.ch in Davos should be able to do all you need. Same disclaimer: reservation needed, not inexpensive.

    MIchael Meier at Stoked in Zermatt does superb work on shells. Interesting shop that carries boots without their liners and only uses Zipfit and Intuition liners. Not expensive. Also, NIck Hammond at Mountain Air in Verbier is excellent. I've had major work done at both shops. Both are by appointment.

    I would be shocked if you can't find a good fitter in Zurich or the area. Look for whatever shop is catering to the suburban race kids.

    Oh well there goes my weekend. Yesterday I had to work. Today I'm still too sick to go touring. Well at least I have to "work" Tuesday and Wednesday in a ski area where my students go for "ski day."
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    Thinking about going on a road trip next week. Where should I go? Iíve read snow and weather reports but nothing beats solid local reports. I was thinking through northern Switzerland to France and back to Bayern

    Iím out with a ruptured Achilles, but hanging around Klosters this weekend, Iíd be surprised if there wasnít some nice powder if you tour to some north faces. Biggest question is how windswept. Also, Zurich school holidays means lots of people around...

    Amazed and saddened by how quick I hit melt/freeze crust in Verbier today.

    (I was having a stinker tho.)

    Any suggestions for Zurich? Not that they don't have good bootfitters here (obviously they do - the race scene and all). Just heard it wasn't very common for recreational skiers to get bootwork done, so asking around amongst the random shops and skiers won't be very productive. Maybe that's bad info though.

    Give them a try. A friend who is in a club in ZŁri says they work with them. No idea as to their competence though.

    Yes, basically. If Iím really lucky and the snow sticks around, I might get to go touring in May/June? Going to talk to doc about sit-ski or ski bike to see if those might be earlier options.

    Just kidding. Heal up bwp. achilles is annoying, but after 10 weeks I was climbing again. And get surgery asap. It heals a lot better if they fix it right away !
    But train your calf. Mine is still smaller (9 years) than the other because I'm lazy... .

    I have a bud who is still struggling 4 years after injury. Despite 3 x a week gym sessions, he can't really get one of the muscles to fire properly anymore. He came back too early and the other muscles took over and still limps a bit, so really listen to your physio bwp!

    Snow for the Euros.

    Hoping this is an ok place to put this..

    I am flying into Zurich this Friday morning and meeting the rest of my group in Bevar on Saturday night for a week of skiing St Moritz.

    I have from Friday morning until Saturday on my own and looking for any suggestions on how to best spend my time. I currently have a room booked in Chur for Friday night and plan on checking out the Giger bar (which I found on one of the thread on here).



    As Iím packing Iím second guessing myself and wondering if I am missing out on something or a more scenic/cool town I should stay in instead of Chur for 36ish hours. I see itís been dumping in St Anton, so I could go there for a day.

    Thanks for any input, Iíve packed and repacked a few times and geeking out until my flight in the morning. Havenít done any Euro skiing in 10 years.

    I would would also love to buy anyone a beer or two as Iíll be rolling solo and would love to hang out.
