jbeck69Thanks for the advice. Found a pretty sweet deal for these boots, but I guess a more resort focused boot could be my best option.
If you’re spending most of your time spinning lifts I’d go with something with more substance. Depending on your foot, the best 50/50 boots going right now IMHO as a fitter are the Lange XT3, Salomon Shift Pro and K2 Mindbender. These all ski pretty much exactly like their downhill counterparts (Lange RX, Salomon S/Pro, K2 Recon) while touring better than some of the other options out there (Tecnica Cochise, Dalbello Lupo). I’d check those out if I were you. If you’re doing an equal amount or more touring than lift skiing, then you could look at a boot like the Maestrale RS or the Dynafit Hoji Free.
