Hey everyone, I am wondering what other sled-skiers are using on their feet to ride their sleds and then shred the POW!! Do you put something on your typical alpine boots? Or do you use AT boots with a grippy bottom/rubber bottom? Or make a change once you are out there?
Sled Skiing Boot Solution?
Yeah, I have a set of Garmont Shoguns (AT boots) but I just find them to have to much flex for my liking. The alpine boots are stiffer and more capable for driving the big boys through the POW.
Itd be nice to find a set of rubber slip-ons or something you could slide over the bottom of the boots. The running boards destroy boots pretty quickly and you still slide around a bit.
I have both. Used cat trax for years but now upgraded to the yak version. You do have to be sure that you have them completely snapped over your lugs. I almost lost one awhile back noticing I 'threw a shoe" but was able to back track a couple hundred feet and find it.
