I just purchased a new pair of 2011 Salomon Mission RS 8 boots. I ski on a pair of 2010 172cm Dynastar Contacts 10's, with PX12 Bindings and consider myself a level 2 skier. My previous set of boots were the Technica and they were at least 10 + yrs old.
My question is when I had my new boots set up on my ski's and it was literally my 1st time in the boots on the slopes, I found myself having no control on the slopes.
I found turning and carving next to impossible and stopping was at one point hazardous !!
It was like I had never been on ski's before and did not know how to ski .
Is this common for new boots to ski's?
Like I said above my old boots were about 10+ yrs old and my previous ski's were a set of Atomic 205's ( obviously not parabolic )
I feel like a total spaz on these ski's with new boots , what am I doing wrong ?
or is this common with new boots ?
hoping you can help
