NegromancerThey will be fine as long as you have reasonable ability.
For the first few days of skiing they may feel a bit overwhelming and hard to control but you'll get use to them quickly.
Exactly. I had a women boot the year before and switched to Full tilts party because they are fairly light and they were a lot heavier than the women. I thought they wouldn't work but about a week or so I adjusted and now they seem lighter than the women boots I was skiing.
