So i have been having boot problems for a while now. Last year was fitted to something for comfort (full tilt, 29.5), and when it packed out it was wayy too big for skiing hard, this year I sized down in the same boot(28.0), but the calves still were way to large and were moving around when skiing hard. So i sold that boot, Now im in a completely different boot (salomon ghost 27.5) and though it feels alot better, im still having pain. Im positive im not skiing backseat, and I have less pain in untracked powder or groomers, compared to all variable conditions off piste which isnt doable for longer than an hour. I hate skiing easy, so I have only been able to ski for two hours before my lower leg muscles cramp up and have intense pain with any sort of bump, mogul, chop or crud.
Whats wierd is that its not even cramps because the muscles are fine, I can go to the gym and squat and do calf raises and run a few miles on the treadmill with no problems. Its only when skiing, or only when im in my boots, since I can feel it right when I put them on to go skiing and then start walking. Its like the boottop is putting pressure on my fibulas or something. I thought I had stress fractures, but had an xray done to the worse leg and its fine. Im pretty flabbegasted, and angry, because my season is going down the drain.
I have 60 days so far, so maybe I just need a break. But im asking you guys to see if it could be a boot problem. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
