Recently I went to a local ski shop to pick up a pair of boots and skis. After talking with the shop workers I ended up with a pair of Tecnica Mach 1 90 Flex. I must say the boots are extremely comfortable, but after reading a bunch of threads on Epic it seems like I should be in at least a 110. On a related note, the shop also put me in some 180 in lieu of 187 Bonafides. I guess what I'm really asking is does my local shop seem to know what they're talking about based on my background? How would you have advised a similar customer based on only the information given?
Secondly, if I decided to spend some more money and become a gear whore, would you say I should sell the boots at a ski swap and get into a stiffer boot, or should I add a pair of skis to the quiver?
I'd love to hear any and all opinions.
P.S. Anyone going to be @ Vail/BC Feb 12-15th and want to grab a beer or make some turns
