Background: I'm going skiing (Vail, CO) for the first time in like ten years. Looking at my old Lange Xri (Pink Panthers) racing boots, I'm guessing that boot designs and materials have advanced since then (1989). Since I don't know how often I will ski henceforth, I'd prefer to rent demo boots at Vail? I'm assuming I can do this. Any recommendations?
Background: Prior to gap (see above) vacation skier since age 4, achieved expert level comfortably skiing steep and deep, and going off-piste in Utah and Chamonix, France.
Fitness: Excellent condition, workout regularly, long-distance runner.
