Here are your personal picks, with some obvious standouts in states such as New Hampshire and Vermont. Check out the original Facebook post that started the conversation, where you can add your own top-shop choice, and have a great time skiing and snowboarding all the powder.

Oh My God, The Boot Pro in Ludlow, VT. Stands a ski length above them all. There are only two shops I would trust my feet to. Five different highly rated Vermont shops couldn't get it right. Boot Pro did. And, in Colorado, I would go to Larry's in Boulder. For a tune and repair, Randy Haskell and the boys downstairs get it right every single time. In Wanaka, New Zealand, it's Racers Edge because some of Larry's boys head there in the summer.
