It does. My boots are canted outward 1 degree out of the box. Its one of the reasons I chose them. They also have cuff alignment screws on both the lateral and medial sides.

I chose my AT boots as well because of the built in stance. They weren't the boots I thought I'd be in, but were a much better choice for my particulars.

That is pretty neat. How did you determine you needed 1 degree outside?

I'm not saying people can't benefit from it. All I am saying most of the general skiing public A. have no clue what canting is and how to even ask about it at the shop, B. will not drop the money for the service and C. Is becoming harder and harder to find a shop that will grind soles. It is easier, faster and cheaper for a shop guy to drop in a foot bed with posting to HELP not fix alignment issues. I am not taking about top end skiers, I am speaking of the general 10 day a year guys and gals that are just having fun sliding on snow (shocking!)  

I agree with your post completely. Hopefully more instructors will point this out. Skiers who never take lessons and fight their skis due to a alignment problem hurt the sport but probally many of them do not care to ski better.
