Trying to become better skier, should I buy new boots?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I just started skiing a few years ago and am solid intermediate. Skied about 25 days last year and should be same this year. Mostly in MI. Went out to Snowmass and Copper last winter and skied with level 7 group lessons. Mostly groomers will venture off piste when available to me. My boots are Tecnica Inferno Blaze mondo 27.5, 315mm. Bought mainly because they were in stock at the local shop, seemed to fit, were on sale. Bought Surefoot custom footbeds a year later. Do not notice any issues with fit. Wear thin socks and rarely get cold. Feet do not hurt.

 

Keep reading about importance of fit and boots. Did I just get lucky and get the right boot? or if I get a real fitting from a good place will I notice a difference? Reason I ask is that I am going out to Beaver Creek next week and then Vail a couple weeks later and could make a trip to a good boot shop if would be worthwhile.

Thanks

Scott

sounds like they might be OK.   usually, as you get better, you demand more from the boots, and issues (boots too big) will appear.

Greg Hoffman is there and he would be on the list of country's best fitters.  You have no frame of reference for what is possible so why not get one.  See Greg, if won't be a waste of time.  You'll either find out your boots are great or you'll leave with better skiing ahead.
