I'm 60 years old, 163# 5'6" tall and consider myself an advanced skier. (Comfortable with everything I see here in New England except for mogul runs, happiest with groomers.) Bought K2 AMP 82xtis last year and love them. Time for new boots though.(Old ones were Tecnica TI10 (I think) and are 14 years old and packed out.
I haven't tried on anything yet (aiming to do that in the next week or so) but the local shop I first visited is talking about a 90 flex for me. Reading on this site seems to indicate that everyone is skiing stiffer boots than that.
Any recommendations as to what I should look for as an initial flex level?
Almost all of my skiing is here in the Northeast and on groomers tham may be hard but there are some rare powder days.
Since it's been so long since the last boot purchase, everything is new to me.
Thanks in advance, David
