John has been skiing since the age of nine, starting with the rope tow at Heavenly Valley. By having bowlegs and flat feet John had to learn how to adapt and modify both skis and boots to be able to ski. On one occasion an Instructor commented after watching John make a run….. “I counted over twenty corrections you made to complete a turn. Anybody else would have quit skiing and started golf or tennis”. John taught skiing, done some minor teen racing and has been boot fitting for twelve years – nine years at one of the best shops in the bay area, California Ski Company.
He has attended numerous ski boot fitting seminars, Masterfit Masters program, Masterfit Dark Arts course, Superfeet boot fitting, Soze boot fitting training program and Korich Biostance System.
