SteezMcGeeI ski the Salomon Ghost and it feels sooooo good. Stiff enough to be responsive but not too stiff to the point of being uncomfortable. Soft enough that its forgiving and playful but not too soft that its sluggish and not supportive.
CaptainSpeke14I used to ski Rossi boots too. Those things sucked so bad. I was able to find a super good deal on a pair previous model Full Tilts. I have skied on Rossi, Nordica and Salomon boots. I ski park but its not the only thing I ski, I ski some back and side country. I hike a heck ton in my boots. I have been extremely impressed with my Full Tilts. I have a #6 flex tongue which is perfect for an all around riding boot. I know though that full tilt boots can be a bit pricey. I have never skied Salomon Ghosts but the ghost FS 100 looks like it could be a fricking good boot. So many park riders and skiers think they have to ski Full Tilts but thats just simply not true there are so many other good boots out there. I recommend going to ski shop and try on some different boots. Don't let the boot fitters try and make up your mind. Look for something in the 90-100 flex range see what you like in terms of fit. Cool looking boots come secondary. Full tilt boots are very narrow and can take awhile to get used to also. Find what feels right for you. I also recommend looking at thrift stores for used boots. Yeah I'll get crap for saying that but if you can find one that hasn't been heat molded and there just for one season or so until you make up your mind it can be a cheap option. Don't make the mistake I did and buy boots that didn't come with a power strap. Worst year of skiing because of shin bang. You can also make a cheap crappy boot ski so much better by just buying some booster straps to replace the old factory straps. Hope I could help.
.MASSHOLE.Go to a bootfitter.
Your foot is different than everyone elses. They'll be able to help you.
dolanbrasserThanks a lot preciate it homie
Dont listen to the thrift store thing. Go to a bootfitter, get fitted for boots. You will have the most comfort and control if you get fitted. from there, you can scope deals online. bootfitter is always #1, cant stress it enough.
dolanbrasserDo they do well in the park?
