I'm travelling to CO in a weeks time for a ski trip and am planning to buy some new boots at the start of the trip.
I fly into Denver Sunday evening and have the chance to buy the boots in Denver Monday morning before departing for the mountains. Planning to stay in the Greenwood/Englewood area.
Our first week will be in Steamboat Springs.
I'm looking for a few suggestions on the following
- Buy in Steamboat or Denver?
- Recommended stores to get a well fitted boot?
- What boot to buy?
On the 3rd question, I've read in a few posts buy as expensive as you can. I have to balance that with the fact that I only get to ski once a year and the travel etc tends to be quite expensive, so the piggy bank ain't all that full.
My ability is around the Intermediate/Advanced Int level.
I see Sports Authority for example have boots in the $200 - $300 range whereas others such as Christies start at the $300 mark and go way up from there.
Thanks in advance for any help ....
