    Sorry if this question is in the wrong location, but… Can someone email me a list of recommended boot techs in the Roaring Fork Valley that can modify or punch out a shell. I have Garmont Radiums, largest size possible and still having great toe pressure issues on the left foot. (right great toe was cut off years ago, frosbite of course :-))
    Thanks in advance.

    Ha Ha, It’s obvious… Just cut off the left great toe. Sorry, somebody had to say it.

    My brother and I refer to Steamworks in Durango as The Office when we are in town. I think people are catching on, though…

    This is off-topic, but as there doesn’t seem to be any topic except the beauty of the dolomites (which is certainly worth a post, mind you), I’ll try to ask here…

    Is there a possibility to improve the Wildsnow search function? As the useful content in the comments equals if not exceeds the actual blog content itself, a search covering the comments would be great. Or at least an option to extend the search to the comments.

    I’m pretty sure someone commented about this already, but I couldn’t find it through the search function, which only highlights the problem. 🙂

    Lou is most probably out enjoying the fresh snow that has started to cover the Southern Alps and the Wildsnow search function is the least of his worries now, but maybe someone could keep the thought in the back of theirs heads and tackle the problem over the snowless months of the year (also known as summer).

    Have fun Lou, can’t wait to here some fresh Dynafit news…
