I bet the OP found a lawyer. :-) who told him no more posts on the public forum.  No posts from the OP (xray....) for 3 days.

Or, like a lot of people who join forums to rant and vent expecting a sympathetic response, didn't get the answers he wanted to hear, got generally scolded, so he left

I doubt he will find a lawyer--Head will indemnify whoever else is sued and I'm sure they have a pretty airtight defense filled out and deep pockets to defend with. Howver, if he does manage to find one and they use some of the irreresponsible posts in this thread to win a settlement or a judgment, the cost of skiing will be just a little bit higher and we will only have ourselves to blame.

How did your lawsuit against Salomon go?

We settled out of court for an amount that rhymes with "racon ramwich"

Even if you have some idea it is tough.  About 10 years ago I had an unplanned opportunity to ski with no equipment, so rented everything.  I thought I had picked out the right size.  Halfway up the stairs to the exit, I realized they were hopeless and turned around.

I went back, expecting just to trade to a smaller size, and told the tech my feet were swimming.  To my surprise, he poked around in back and came out with a pair of non-rental boots.  (Green translucent Langes.) I don't think I ever thanked him properly.  They worked great for skiing, but had so much forward lean that standing around was painful.  ... and I couldn't get them off at the end of the day.

Sounds like banshees, and langes can be a bitch to remove when they're cold.
