I work out with weights and do cardio 5 days per week so I thought I would be in good shape to ski. I am a big guy 6'2 " 260 lbs. someone told me yesterday I might be in the backseat. I tried to purposely lean forward but they still hurt to the point I don't want to ski. Any ideas on how to fix this? They hurt from the first to the last run.
My ideas are that packing out my new boots hurt my feet causing the pain to my legs. Somehow the symmetry of the boot ski combo is off like I lean too far forward in the boots all the time. They do seem to lean forward more than rental boots
. Thanks. I'm here skiing vail this week.
The packing out idea is questionable. Sounds like it's a forward lean issue, front support issue. As markojp pointed out, the xmax 120 isn't exactly super stiff.
You didn't have this problem with the quads in rental boots?
You should stop wasting your vacation and go to the boot shop immediately. Quad burn blows. I've been there with a new boot that wasn't right.
Wow, didn't know that Greg was at Beaver Creek these days.
