    SLC bootfitter with Grilamid experience?

    Going to be spending a couple of weeks over Xmas and new year in SLC. Can anyone recommend a good bootfitter with Grilamid experience? Need to get a pair of salomon MTN touring boots fitted and probably also some custom footbeds as well.

    One of the few, if any, complaints I've heard. Maybe sportsloft? They do a bit of touring so I'd imagine they can work grilamid.

    Hard to to imagine a bootshop not experienced with grilimid at this point. It’s heavily used by pretty much every manufacturer.

    Zo no longer at DPH, Colby at the Motherlode is good. Problem with DPH and Motherlode is you never know who is going to be working.

    There's nothing terribly difficult about working with a Grilamid shell that an experienced bootfitter can't figure out - you just don't use as much heat and you normally can't grind because the shells are thinner. The MTN Lab/S/Lab MTN gives you a pretty obvious visual clue (it turns shiny on the surface when it's getting too hot). A few ultralight boots require a very light touch, but the MTN is not one of them. Typically on width punches the open scaffo of the MTN will drop lower and you have to go back later and push it back into position.

    I live in SLC and have always had Surefoot in Park City do mine, work has always been excellent. For me it's worth the drive over, I just arrange something else to do while I'm there to double up on the trips. It's only 30min drive.
