Lange XT LV questions.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Lange Freeriders , about 5 seasons old that need replacing. I am 53, male,5 ft 7 , weigh about 155 lbs have  small feet t (25,5 and the last would need to be narrow, so the 97 should suit). I was interested in getting a boot with more flex than the old orange Freeriders. I removed both bolts in the back and manged to get the boot working once the temperature got above minus 20. I am still trying to work on technique rather than hurtling down the slopes...


I ski about 30- 40 days a year and will try for my Level 2 PSIA soon mainly for volunteer work with Adaptive students.


Question 1:  I would like to try some BC skiing, but about 90% will be Alpine . IS the new XT as 'good' as the last seasons RX for Alpine. 


Question 2: Since it has lace up liners, I assume that the absolute agony I had with getting my Freeriders on in the morning will only be amplified ?. IE I have to shove my liner encased foot into the boot ?. Or is it actually easier. ? I needed a hair drier to get into my boots most mornings, but once in I was - generally- happy .


Question 3. Recommendations for a Lange bootfitter in Frisco/ Dillon / Keystone. Greg Hoffman is a little too far , as I will be based in Dillon/ Breck for the 2 months I am in the US.

1)  yes,  if it fits you right.   sounds like you wont over power a boot, so most will be fine. 

2) liner on foot,   then liner in shell.  keep stuff warm, and that should help

3)  no idea who is in that area.

Greg is about 22 miles from Frisco---we have folks come in from distant states to get boot problems sorted out----22 miles isn't very far in the scheme of thingssmile.gif.

Understand Mike. I will be coming from Sydney to get it done so the distance isn't necessarily an issue. smile.gif  I don't have a car , so getting to Vail is a little more problematic than Keystone and Breck with the Summit Shuttle at my door. 

My last set of boots were done by the Boot Doctors at Telluride whilst I skied there for a month. So it was GREAT to walk off the slope and have tweaks done whilst I waited.


I guess it means I will have to make sure I ski Vail for the first week or so if I use Greg, which is a small price to pay for a decent fit.
