Well, that escalated quickly! I'm slightly overwhelmed by the response to my question. But I'm still not convinced I need to see a bootfiter. I've been skiing for a LONG time and I never had major issues with boots right out of the box. I asked a simple question about boot flex and you guys gave me alot more to consider. You brought up some questions pertaining to fit like "last" and stuff and I don't really have those answers. So I will probably try some boots on before I buy anything.
There are not many skiers on this forum from Long Island, but I guess I was hoping someone would chime in here with a recommendation for a good local shop. I don't want to go into the city to see some overpriced foot doctor. Even the ones mentioned in Ski Country seem to be far and wide. I'm certainly not traveling to Salt Lake City! Those recommendations do not consider the wants and needs of a >10 a year skier.

If you can make it to Wayne, NJ, Greg Pier, previously of the now closed Heino’s, is an excellent boot fitter now associated with Ski Barn. Here is a link with additional info: http://www.heinosskiandcycle.com
