Anyone having a problem clicking brand new (not scuffed) boots into the toepiece of a binding at 5F or below?
(Particularly interested in Tyrolia and Marker owner responses).

Snow and ice can stick to the bottom of boots when it is really cold. That can cause a problem, but never felt it was the binding's fault with the exception of the brass Spademan butterfly plates screwed to the boot soles that used to be required for that particular brand.
This is with completely clean boots (scraped clean of snow and double-checked).
The toe lug simply does not want to go into the toepiece at any reasonable, (i.e humanly achievable with a foot in the boot) insertion angle.
It NEVER happens once the temps reach 15F and above.
