The guy at your shop is an idiot. I have Anthems and they are fine for all mtn. but the chronic will be better. I use my Anthems in park and in anything that isn't deep (got Bacons for that). The anthems are a very fun soft poppy ski and they are really easy to ride switch on because they are symmetrical.
Also why would he recommend Dalbello boots, have you tried on any boots yet, just get boots that fit, might be Dalbello, might not be.
