    His philosophy is to stabilize the heel rather than posting the arch. He molds them non-weight bearing so if your philosophy is that they should be fitted weight bearing go somewhere else. I've had Cosmo's and Olympics and they seemed very similar to me. Cosmo is gone like the man said. Now someone post some more pictures before this whole thread gets moved to tech talk.

    Yeah, Cosmo is gone. Buck (Olympic Bootworks owner) used to run the little ski shop in Soda Springs (Java Summit) for those who remember.

    Sako (Bestfit Boots) used to be up at Sugar Bowl but this year moved to Truckee, next to Paco's in the factory outlet area. I've been going to him for a while (as well as sending others) and have always had good experiences.

    This pic is awesome, but from the pic it's hard to tell who did your custom footbeds. Give us a clue

    OFFICIAL TAHOE 18/19 STOKE, CONDITIONS, WEATHER THREAD

    Btw, good slushes at KW today. Started firm and lapped some groomers. Moved off piste. Highlights of the day.

    “Dad follow me. I see a way into the Drain.” Then we ski Waterfall.

    When I asked if we could take two laps off 6, instead of one, before calling it a day.

    “Only if one can be Chamiox.”

    Had a blast skiing with my kid today.

    Rain/snow came in around 1pm. Snow line was top station of chair 11.

    Just turned over to snain and maybe snow over the last half hour at 7750’. Hope we continue on that trend.

    Thanks man - that day screamed out for a better camera than my phone! Appreciate the kudos, but man, it's only a shadow of how awesome it was in person. Gotta get some better gear and more importantly better skill! (appreciate the kudos huck and o-t-t-yeah-you-know-me)

    But you raise a good point - the punter in the photos (telek not me) doesn't even use footbeds, much less custom ones.
    sproing!

    Had mine molded at Olympic Bootworks on Sunday, picking them up this weekend. I'm REALLY excited to get them into my snowboard boots and TLTs. Been riding with custom orthodics from my podiatrist, I think the Olympic Bootworks approach is even better than how my podiatrist made my molds.

    Curious why you don't use the orthotics made by your podiatrist?

    since this is the custom footbed thread. when i got me tibial plateau surgery done it ended up slightly misaligned which i'm guessing means my foot is not aligned the same as the other. is that something that can be corrected with a custom footbed?

    Don’t be an idiot powdork, you know the only way to truly fix it is to cut off your foot, rotate it back to the correct position then reattach.

    I’ve got a lot of experience with aqua seal and super glue and can assist in that operation. Also handy with a cleaver.

    3” on the railing.

    They're worn out and current insurance doesn't cover replacements. The ones from Olympic Bootworks are easier on my pocketbook and worth a shot.

    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Plus the ones from the podiatrist make it hard to sideslip the whole way down a chute. ;--)

    Skied KW like it was side country. Dropped the kiddo at ski school at 10:30 and skied untracked until I picked him up at 3:45.

    Snow was fun. Fairly decent about 8800’, heavier below that. Improved as the day went on with dropping temps. Plenty of snow. Like I said, like side country. No remnants of skier tracks until about 8500’.

    For a wet spring storm, it sure was fun at KW today. No one around.

    Worked coin-op @ squaw today. Didn't ski much but what I did was fun.

    Heavy Sierra cement, rain line was about at the bottom of headwall. Probably 6 to 8 inches at gold coast in the am, and another maybe 6"+ during the day. Soft slush underneath. Upper mountain lifts (-gold coast) went on hold for lightning through the day. Tomorrow if the light gets better skiing will be good, but unless temps drop tonight it will be dense pow. Also sounds like the possibility of lightning tomorrow as well.

    Holy thick snow out at Squaw Batman

    But what makes that mountain so amazing is the ability to find fun new spots regardless of snow. Something is always good. Steeps were sluffy mush, but the kind of snow you could absolutely hop and shut down speed through if needed. Fun

    Anyone know the all time record base at squaw?

    Just checking the snow report, and yeah 670 inches is a lot!
    But 240 inches of base? That is mental. 20 feet?

    Will I find any chutes or is it all one buffed out bowl this year?

    https://ski-resort-stats.com/Squaw-valley/
    Last year was huge by the chart in the stats link, but peaked around (only) 480cm (189 inches), and now they are at 559cm!

    Burried. Haven't you been keeping up. F'n North*Star is leading the pack.
    Good 2 - 4 feet of base at the lake. Although the Solar*Star aka Death* is starting to win and the Rain is helping down low.
    Sh*t be BURRIED do

    I'm cool with this, as long as you Kirkwood Bro Brah's stay away from Heavenly when 88 closes- TahoeBc
