onenerdykidBoots, far and away, are the most important part of your set up. The proper boot will give you far more control, balance, and comfort than you previously thought. In order to find out what is the best boot for you, go visit your local boot-fitter and try on/get what he recommends (not what others recommend for you).
BogsThey don't make you a better skier, but they can certainly help you ski better.
I personally like my boots tighter, because the more closely a boot fits to your foot, the more responsive it's going to be when skiing.
The best boot for park will be the boot that fits your foot the best and is comfortable for you to ski in all day.
Could be keeping you back from your potential, but it's impossible for us to know without seeing your foot and the boot you ski in.
frankcolderboots are far more important than anything in your setup. definitely go to a bootfitter, the right boot will make you a better skier, guaranteed
whenever i sit back in my boots my shins come off of the front of my boot.... should i tighten them down more?
