So long story, short.
I used to ski, but have snowboarded for the last couple of years, at the start of this season (southern hemisphere) I picked up some cheap park skis and boots and thought i'd give it a crack again. Turned out to be a lot of fun and I've probably skied more days than boarded this season.
I've heard the argument that I should just go out and buy good fitting boots, and I'll probably do that when I ave the money, but after spending a fair bit on new outerwear and board boots this year it wasn't really an option.
So in the short term I reckon this is a pretty good solution.
