Snow in my boots

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Tecnica Damon 110 boots. I had a problem last week with the liners getting wet. I thought maybe it was normal due to the number of posts regarding boot drying. Well I skied Saturday on groomed conditions and after a couple of hours I could see snow/moisture between my boots and liner. As the day went on my liner and socks got wet. I have the buckles as tight as possible to keep my circulation going. When I got home and pulled the liners out I dumped quite a bit of water out of the shell.

 

I can't believe this is normal. What do you think? I think I'll take the boots back to the ski shop to see what they say.

 

I never had this problem with my old Nordica rear entry boots!!! :D

I highlighted the sentence I thought was interesting---If you over tighten boots, it usually will cut off circulation---it will also distort the shell, perhaps this opened the overlap and allowed snow/water entry.  Check with your ski shop and get there read on the problem.

I didn't word that right, what I meant to say is that I tighten the boots as much as I can stand, which isn't very much at the toe, I have bad circulation and am worried that the bottom buckle might me too loose.

 

Sorry for the poor grammar on my part
