This is where the business is at for us in Chamonix at the moment. Very little change or movement in the Alpine Ski Boot Market.
The war (sic) seems to be between the Alpine Boots being able to tour ok and the Rando Boots being able to Ski ok. There are a multitude of shapes, types, fit and models. Given the different liner options and generally higher stand of bootfitting worldwide, we can almost say there is something that will work for everybody, whatever your bias.
For me right now, the Randonnée companies, Scarpa, Garmont, Dynafit are winning this war, their products tour and ski better than the current bunch of offerings from the Alpine companies, Salomon, Nordica, Technica, Atomic. Next year however Tecnica have the most interesting offering, for me it's the first time Tecnica seem to have got this stuff right. All said we are pretty much as close as I can understand we can be to bringing these two different disiplines closer together. Of course, there is a comprimise always, but it's becoming marginal, as is fit, your bootfitter should with the right tools be able to make any of the offerings, fit, ski and tour better, find someone who knows the market inside out.
