Snowboarder converting. Got a deal on a pair of K2 Silencer 2011. Settled on PX12's. Now, which boots ?

Title says pretty much all!

 

I only skied for one year then switched to snowboarding. I love snowboarding, but I'd like to ski this season. I am planning on hitting the park a lot, but also I'd like to have the flexibility of being able to freeride comfortably.

 

I got a decent deal on a pair of K2 Silencers. I am settled on Look PX12 bindings. All that is left to decide is the boots. What do you guys / ladies recommend ?

 

Thanks !

Welcome to EpicSki.  Nobody here can recommend a boot or even a brand for you.  I can however tell you that a lot of park skiers like Full Tilt boots, but that is pretty meaningless if they don't fit your feet.  Boots are vastly more important than skis so you should try to do it right the first time around so you don't have to repeat the process again next year.  Read this article, http://www.epicski.com/a/ski-boots-the-most-important-piece-of-gear-you-will-own and then visit the "Ask the Boot Guys" forum and read the wikis about fitting and terminology.  Then check the "Who's Who" to see if there is a boot fitter listed near you.  If there is, make an appointment and get some boots.  If there isn't one listed, ask and someone will be able to recommend a fitter.  The "Who's Who" is only a list of fitters that are at least a bit active on EpicSki.  There are many others who aren't.

 

Good luck and let us know how it all works out.
