Hey guys, so I've taken the advice of some here on the board and started looking for my first pair of ski boots. I went to the local ski shop (which is the ONLY ski shop I have within 110 miles) to see what they had in stock. There selection wasn't large by any means, but they seem to have some decent boots. The ones that seemed to work the best for me were the Rossignol Alias Sensor 120.
The main "boot fitter" was occupied at the time so I didn't get to talk to him much. The boot seemed to fit well, but I don't think I was used to the stiffness of the boot. I have always rented my boots, and I am assuming that rental boots are generally not this stiff. I tried to find reviews online of this boot, but I really couldn't find any personal reviews.
I have two separate questions. 1- Has anyone heard anything about this particular boot (good or bad). 2- Would it be a bad idea to buy the boot without getting properly "fit", and if I do that, would I be able to get "fit" once I get out west?
