I am building out my AT ski set up this year and would like to get boots fitted in person. Are there any ski shops in Colorado Springs or in the resort areas south of I-70 that deal with backcountry gear? I am located near FairPlay so would prefer to avoid driving to Denver.

Just don't get your boots like your climbing shoes, no matter what the hard core people say!
