Ski Boots for a retired snowboarder

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Skied east cost a few times as a high school kid and few days in my mid 20's before converting to snowboarding. I have been snowboarding now 14 years 6-7 days a year. A few more days when I lived in Montana. I am wanting to return to skis. Two reasons. 1) My daughter is learning and it seems easier to ski with her if I am in skis. 2) With 40 approaching I am beginning to tire of sitting down to strap up on an incline, etc…I have never been a trick guy, always just a cruiser. 

 

I spoke with a certified Boot Fitter in my area at 6'1 235 he suggested Solomon XPro 130 so that I can have them heat molded to my needs. Is that to much boot for a ski newbie? The price is high but I hope to ski another 10-20 years so it doesn't seem that bad if you look at in those terms.

have you read the post "what boot will work for me"??    Best place to start.

 

120 flex is fine for a bigger guy that has slide around before
