Atomic Hawx Prime 100 Ski Boots · 2022
Anyone wanting to escape the long line nightmare at the rental counter and invest in a superb boot for all-mountain skiing. This boot focuses on shedding the weight by starting with the slimmest possible profile and then building up reinforcement in key zones around the foot like the energetic backbone at the heel, and extra cushioning at the tongue and toe box. This one is ideal for lighter-weighing skiers and those who like to get rad in the air at the park.
The Hawx 100 is an all-mountain ski boot perfect for the intermediate skier with a medium build! The Thermo moldable liner will ensure that you can get the perfect fit with an easy heat mold appointment at your local shop. These boots are comfortable and manageable to ensure that an intermediate skier gets the most out of every day without any foot discomfort!

The gripwalk sole combined with the walk mode make these great to get around in, but you will love them when you are heading downhill in comfort.
Dalbello Panterra 100 GW Ski Boots · 2021
The three-piece (aka cabrio) design allows for really consistent flex throughout the entire range of motion as you apply pressure to the front of your boot. It also makes for a really comfortable boot. A regular boot will be made of 2 pieces, the lower "shoe" and the bootcuff, whereas this design has the lower "shoe", a partial cuff around the back of your calf and ankle, and a plastic tongue piece, which really makes these boots adjustable. In boots, adjustability = comfort. These also have a walk mode, which makes the boot flex/hinge very easily when you are walking around in the ski lodge or to the parking lot.
100 flex is perfect for intermediate to advanced skiers! It has a walk mode to make life easier when you aren't skiing. Great 4 buckle design for precision and power! Micro adjustment on the buckles. 100-102 width for average feet.

This boot comes with a ton of great features. The boot has a walk mode to make walking around the base area and lodge easy and comfortable, and the grip-walk soles keep you from slipping. The toe buckle can be adjusted for different widths (width of the forefoot). The liner is designed to keep you comfortable and warm, and the cabrio design gives you a more progressive flex pattern for power transfer to the ski. Buckles are micro-adjustable to dial in fit.
Dalbello boots are almost always the best-fitting boot out of the box. The shells are already stretched in most of the places where there is often tightness, like the toes and the ankle. The three-piece shell also makes them very easy to get in and out of, without sacrificing any sort of performance. These are 85 flex (this determines how easy they are to bend). Great for enjoying the mountain without worrying about blisters, cold toes, or bone spurs.

These boots have a great true-to-size fit with 3M Thinsulate to keep your feet dry and warm all day on the hill. there is 13 degrees of forward motion in these boots and they have a bit more of a narrow last at 98mm. These boots can also take GripWalk soles if you eventually wanted to add those to the boot it would be just a few simple adjustments on your bindings. The liners can even be molded for a better, more comfortable fit!

A 70 flex index is a perfect blend of performance and comfort for a new skier. 100 last is great for average size feet. Fleece liner helps keep your feet warm even if it get a bit chilly out. A heat moldable liner allows you to get that custom fit, thus adding to comfort and performance. An easy step in makes getting the boot on and off that much easier. This is an excellent boot to get you started and will be at your side as you progress and find your self exploring more of the mountain.
The bottom 3 buckles give great retention to the skier, while the top buckle has a sliding buckle ladder to accommodate for the calf muscle if it attaches lower - a common difference between women and men's anatomy. The result is a boot that still gives a snug fit, but isn't constricting the leg or cutting off circulation.
Has a women's specific Perfect Fit HD liner that'll make you feel like you're walking on clouds!! Also heat moldable like the other pair which means you can adapt them exactly to your foot shape and size. Did I mention ultra warm? Never worry about damp feet ever again!

Nordica Sportmachine ST Ski Boots · 2022
Lange LX 80 W Ski Boots · Women's · 2021
With a flex of 80, this boot is stiffer than a rental boot (better performance), but not as stiff as many boots on the market (better comfort). In other words: it's a perfect middle ground for the leisurely skier. The LX80 has a "last," or width at the forefoot, of 102mm. That means it's on the wider side of an average fit. Lange has made legendary boots for decades, so hop on the Lange train and we'll see you at the bottom of the lift!
K2 BFC 80 Ski Boots · 2023
SUUUUUPER killer new line from K2! BFC stands for built for comfort and I can confirm that they are! They're an insanely comfortable boot that is still geared toward performance! These don't have a walk mode, but they're a very comfortable boot and that does not exclude walking to the chairs from the parking lot!

These boots are recommended for skiers who want a high-performing boot that still has good comfort.

The four buckles and ankle adjustment mean it's fairly easy to get the fit of this boot dialed. Atomic calls the way their Hawx boots feel "legendary," and once you get your foot in, you'll feel why!

Fischer My Ranger One 110 PBV Ski Boots · Women's · 2020
More of an intermediate to advanced ski boot with a fairly aggressive 110 flex. A really solid boot for a great price. Lightweight and stiff for more aggressive skiing. This boot was designed for lady freeriders looking for a boot to ski hard in. It comes with a walk mode so it's comfortable to walk in and is lightweight so it will keep you feeling light on your feet and skiing hard all day long.

This is a really good, wider boot that can be adjusted to fit a variety of foot widths. A great option if comfort is a priority for you (It sure is for me). Comfortable, warm, and easy to take on and off.

Roxa R/Fit 80 Ski Boots · 2022
Lightweight but durable plastic is utilized for consistent and energetic flexing, while the BioFit tech allows the shell to be heat molded for a custom feel, making it a boot fitter's best friend. The new overlapping shell and cuff design deliver consistent flex for better power transmission as you drive into the boots. Expanding the circumference of the cuff is made simple and helps avoid any pinching or uncomfortable areas along the cuff that could be happening. The added liner is constructed with super soft foam for maximum comfort and can be heat molded for further adjustments.
