Dalbello DS MX 90 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Great choice for skiers hoping to improve their technique. Lightweight, easy to step into, and has GripWalk soles for easy walking to and from the car or the lodge. Good for a newer skier who is hoping to get to intermediate level gear. Still a comfortable boot with a 104mm last so you won't have to worry about aching feet.
With a 104 last this is great for a wider foot and has a heat-moldable liner to make this a super comfortable boot. Great for all-mountain skiing, they have a 90 flex that's a little softer allowing for a lot more forgiveness. With that heat-moldable liner you can get it customized to your foot.
Dalbello makes high-quality boots that are known to last a long time. These ones come with four buckles and a Velcro strap up top to get a perfect fit. A wider fit makes these comfortable too.
Dalbello Panterra 100 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Someone who wants comfort with performance. The three buckle system provides a snug fit, with the 45 degree buckle holding the heel and ankle comfortably in the boot, without having any pressure. A custom heat moldable liner gives the boot a super custom fit right out of the box, and helps skip any break in period. Adjustable last and gripwalk soles, as well as a walk/hike feature on the boot makes this a perfect match for anyone looking to spend a day on the mountain.
Salomon S/Pro 120 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Recommended for advanced/expert skiers looking for a performance boot. Has a medium last (width) for average-sized feet. Elastic liner in the toe area to keep them snug and warm. The liner is pre-molded and has no stitches or seams for added comfort and warmth. Micro-adjustable buckles to get that perfect fit right out of the box!
Marrying warm all-day comfort to reliable and precise all-mountain performance. The custom 3D pro liners have eliminated the annoying seams in this years model to make them even comfier - this equates to a more snug and warm fit. The 2-position sense amplifier cuff gives you a quicker rebound out of landings (sort of like boosting the camber on your skis it gives more "pop" underfoot). GripWalk soles give you the power to walk around the parking lot and in the lodge with these without feeling like you're constantly on the edge of eating it, very grippy. I think these are one of the best boots to hide seasonal wear too, they come in more of a subdued matte black that is a very clean look.
These are stiff, ultra-responsive all mountain boots with a 120 flex that gives advanced skiers plenty of control and a wider 100mm comfortable fit for average feet. The seamless liner eliminates friction at common uncomfortable rub points. The Custom Shell HD is heat moldable for a custom fit for enhanced sensation. The new Coreframe Construction adds carbon reinforcement to deliver precise terrain feedback and power transmission underfoot.
Dalbello Boss 110 Ski Boots · 2023
These are notoriously comfortable and super easy to take on and off with their three-piece shell design. They have a heat-moldable liner that can adapt to your unique foot shape and help with flat feet. I would certainly recommend a footbed for any purchase you make as it will definitely alleviate any pressure points you may experience by keeping your foot supported and locked in while flexing the boot.
The Cabrio design built from three pieces rather than two, eliminates overlap and the pressure points associated with that. Also gives you a more consistent forward flex and power transfer. A heat-moldable liner allows you to dial in the fit. The extra buckle location on the forefoot is another added feature that will also help you customize your fit.
Dalbello DS MX 75 Ski Boots · 2023
Anyone that prioritizes comfort when they're first starting out! The DS super liner hugs your foot with plush comfort and the 2-piece Hyperlite shell design offers a consistent and a reliable flex that powers a good energy transmission into the bindings.
Head Edge LYT 90 Ski Boots · 2023
These are the perfect ski boot for the ambitious intermediate. They are high-quality boots that won't break the bank, and will last you forever. They come in a progressive 90 flex that is reactive and elastic. The more pressure you apply, the stiffer the flex will get. This will give your turns more power than ever!
Featuring Form Fit technology, this boot can also be heat molded to gain more space if required. A graphene infused shell that has very thin shell walls, gives a responsive flex and nearly unmatched weight to power capacity!
K2 BFC 100 Ski Boots · 2023
A perfect blend of comfort and performance. These have one of my favorite liners of all time with a cushy plush open-cell foam that is as supportive as it is comfy for all-day laps on the mountain. Another unique feature I really like in these is the powerfuse spine in the back that effectively eliminates the chatter and vibrations on variable terrain and really smoothes out your ride!
Salomon S/Pro 100 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Great 4-buckle downhill boot with power, precision, and a fully customizable fit. 100mm last (width) is great for an average width foot. The S/pro is a top of the line boot from Salomon. These have seamless liners to eliminate potential hotspots, and can be fully customized with heat molding for the perfect fit to your foot. GripWalk soles for comfy walking around the lodge and base area as well.
Recommended for intermediate/advanced skiers. 100mm last (width) for average sized feet. Also has a 100 flex - a medium flex for intermediate skiers to give them quick rebound and better snow feel. Micro adjustable buckles to get that perfect fit right out of the box. Seamless line to make sure you are comfortable through the entire day on the slopes!
Super warm, seamless liners keep you comfy and happy all day long! The 100 flex is a great spot for slower, relaxed skiing and hard charging skiing! The oversized pivot point on the heel aslo allows for an easier yet poweful flex to get the most out of your gear!
Head Edge LYT 100 Ski Boots · 2023
Lightweight, easy entry and progressive flex to keep you comfortable while getting the most out of your skis! Head's new liners called the "perfect fit" liners fit amazing straight from the box and can be heat molded for an even ore precise fit.
Tecnica Cochise 110 DYN Ski Boots · 2023
New to 2022, it is a complete redesign. They reduced the weight, made the fit and customization better while retaining the performance and versatility. The C.A.S tech shell and liner will let you fully customize this boot. Overall a top choice tour boot with a mid-range flex that will be perfect to be part of a hybrid set up.
Fantastic performance boot that's powerful and comfortable - 98mm last for a narrower foot, this boot crushes inbounds and out!
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!
An 80 flex is very forgiving, allows for maximum comfort and performance on the slopes. A great choice for someone looking to get a good deal on a boot, these are an awesome option. Grip walk soles and a cushfit comfort liner to really seal the deal here!
Salomon Select 90 Ski Boots · 2023
The S/Pro line are fantastic boots that fit a variety of foot shapes right out of the box, making them a great choice for intermediate skiers looking for something comfortable but with good performance. 90 flex is solid without being overbearing and the new 2022 model is lighter than ever before.
K2 BFC 120 Ski Boots · 2023
With a 120 flex these boots are for faster skiing. They are less forgiving in the bumps, but give greater support and stability on groomers and icy runs. They minimize fatigue when cruising steeper terrain. Recommended for solid skiers that are aggressive in style and want good ankle support.
Lange RX 120 GW Ski Boots · 2023
The Lange RX 120 is a high-performance ski boot made for the all-mountain skier. This boot feels stiff, and skis like an absolute dream because of it. Though stiff, it still offers a forgiving flex and can be used to ski inbounds laps all day. With the easy-to-use traditional 4 buckle design and performance-specific design, this boot is an absolute tank that will take you from groomers to chop to pow without skipping a beat. The 3D-liner and dual-core technology will create maximum comfort, warmth, and control. The rubber sole will reduce chatter and a low profile design increases sensitivity in the boot, keeping you aware of your feet. They are also great for days bouncing back and forth between terrain because they have micro-adjustable buckles, so you can tighten them up when it's steep and deep, or loosen them for a mellow groomer day. This is a good intro to high-performance boots without being overly stiff/aggressive like the 130 version.
Lange RX 100 LV GW Ski Boots · 2023
Highly recommended boot for beginner skiers who are scratching that intermediate level and have a narrower foot shape. These boots sport 3D dual thermo liners that are 60% customizable to really dial in that perfect foot wrap with their soft density foam and a precise soft tension fit. The Duo-port injected shell reinforces the most important areas like the spine, heel, and lower shell with a tougher plastic to improve rebound performance and overall give it sturdier durability for the newer skier who will probably see more impact starting out. Meanwhile, the softer plastics are redirected to cushion the ankle and wrap around the lower leg for increased comfort. The best of both worlds!
Dalbello Panterra 120 ID GW Ski Boots · 2023
The Panterra 120 is a perfect blend of comfort and high performance. The Panterra utilizes a Cabrio 3-piece design, as opposed to the two piece design most often seen in ski boots. The Cabrio design lays the middle buckle right over the ankle joint, securely and effortlessly placing the heel into the heel pocket of the boot; no more heels lifting slightly at every turn! THe Panterra also has fully thermo-moldable ID Liner that also has a roomy and comfortable toe box, and the cuff can be adjusted for different calf volumes. And to top it all off, the Panterra design makes it much easier to get on and off than other two-piece boots.
Cabrio shell makes this a bit different form your traditional 4 buckle boot. GripWalk will make it compatible to most every binding. The 120 stiffness will keep you in an aggressive stance. Buckles pull from two different directions on the bottom for higher level of adjustment.
Comfortable without sacrificing performance, these stiff boot with a three layer construction AND a walk mode from Dalbello. And they have a user-adjustable fourth buckle that lets you adjust the width of the boot, from medium to medium wide.
Atomic Hawx Ultra 100 Ski Boots · 2023
These have a narrow last for narrow feet or for someone who wants a performance fit from their boots. Completely heat moldable, allowing for a custom fit. Great power transfer with a 100 flex for lighter advanced skiers or someone who wants good control over their skis without losing some comfort with a higher flexing boot.
For the intermediate skier who wants a boot that won't hold them back as their skills progress. Atomic's memory fit technology provides a personalized fit with a moldable shell, liner, and cuff. These are a medium stiffness boot that provides a comfortable ride all day long.
The Hawx is a really sturdy boot that fits most average-sized people really well. These liners have enough stiffness to support the shell but also provide a good bit of comfort as well as customizability to each foot.
Tecnica Cochise 120 DYN Ski Boots · 2023
For 2022, they built up the already incredible Downhill performance of the Cochise that actually boosted it's Uphill performance too. How did they do this? Taking some T.Ride technology which is injected carbon to build strength while shaving off grams. Mobility of 50 degrees, the Cochise will feel as if it's a snow boot while touring uphill. And as always, Tecnica included the C.A.S. for the Liner, Tongue, and Shell to make sure you get the best fit possible!
The Cochise are an aggressive boot made for advanced skiers that will drive a 120 flex rating. This is perfect for you! Tecnica makes some of the best boots on the market as they are always a step ahead with innovative materials and nuanced performance adjustments. The Cochise is an example of that thanks to their lightweight shell and carbon spine. This carbon spine provides a firm skeleton of rigid material to drive the power from your leg directly through the boot and into the binding and ski. These liners and shells are also fully customizable/moldable!
This is technically a hybrid boot - can be used for touring and resort skiing. You do not really need that....but it *should* be the best fitting boot.
Nordica Cruise 120 Ski Boots · 2023
A slightly wider fit but with anatomically shaped liners and shell, these offer incredible performance and response, especially at higher speeds. Strategically placed soft plastic on the shell allows for easier entry and exit for comfort. The adjustable cuff is made to fit any calf for the most precise fit possible.
Dalbello Il Moro Ski Boots · 2023
Are these Vans or is this a pair of Dalbellos? No one will really know. But, what you'll know is that you are in one of the most comfortable boots that you can get. A three buckle system comes together with a Cabrio design to make this boot responsive and have the best power transmission from you, to boot, to ski. Great for intermediate skiers who like warmth throughout the whole day on the hill and liners that can be heat molded to fit the bed of your feet. A comfortable boot that will stay comfortable all dang day long.
A performance boot that has the stiffness to hold up to steeper terrain, and the comfort to allow you to ski and perform at slower speeds with the same accuracy. This boot, new for 2021, has an upgraded look, with the same performance as past models. The heel buckle gives you a secure heel hold and the wrap liner, gives you a warmth factor that is awesome to have in colder conditions.
Rossignol Alltrack 90 Ski Boots · 2023
An intermediate level to advanced level skier that is looking for slightly softer, more comfortable boot at a great price. This boot is a 102mm last, so definitely not something I would recommend if you have a narrow-foot. Rossi makes some of the warmest boots out there - it's really crazy how big of a difference their toebox makes!
Dalbello Lupo AX 120 Ski Boots · 2023
Perfect for downhill and uphill skiing, making them the best of both worlds! These have one of Dalbello's best liners that are 100% heat moldable for a perfect fit from calf to toe! A strong 120 flex for an intermediate to advanced skier!
Crossover ski boot for freeriding and touring. Its vast area of use ranges from the piste in ski resorts to deep powder in the backcountry, only accessible after the climb. The large, easy-to-use ski/hike buckle and removable tongue allow for 67 degrees of movement!
Alpina R4.0 Ski Boots · 2023
These provide great comfort for a beginner skier and are easy to put on and take off with the rear entry design. Not very stiff to allow a beginner skier to get some flex out of the boot.
Very soft flex! These boots are the most affordable option available in your size! They're good for getting you out on the slopes in no time and saving you some $ in the process!
This will improve your comfort throughout the day!
Atomic Hawx Ultra 110 S GW Ski Boots · 2023
Nice stiff, strong boot. Prolite is used to reinforce key structural areas. Includes an added rear spine to increase power transmission to the ground. GripWalk soles make walking more comfortable. Asymmetric collar, tongue, and toe box fit better to the foot and leg.
Tecnica Mach1 HV 120 TD Ski Boots · 2023
The Mach1 was developed with a CAS (Custom Adaptive Shape) Liner and Shell for easy customization to get your exact foot shape in the boot. Asymmetric Power Transmission has a thicker shell on the inside of the forefoot to help drive your energy. Between the 4 buckles and the Power strap this is a boot that will keep you foot snug and increase rebound with every turn!

This is a top of the line boot from Salomon with all of the ideal features. Fully customizable, heat moldable shell and liner for the perfect fit, and GripWalk soles for comfy walking around the lodge or base area. It doesn't really get better than this for high quality boots!
Salomon S/Pro HV 130 Ski Boots · 2023
Great stiff, 4 buckle boot for a larger or more aggressive skier with seamless liner. Can be customized for a perfect fit. High-performance all-mountain downhill boot from Salomon. Another great HV (high volume) option from Salomon with a 102mm last for a wider foot. Slightly stiffer at 130 flex if you want something you can ski on aggressively as you improve. Seamless liner reduces friction and customizable shell for a perfect fit.
This will be the stiffest boot option available for the Salomon S/Pro. It comes in a 130 flex if you are looking for an aggressive, stiff, expert level boot.

An all mountain boot for hard mountain charging! This is a really stiff boot meant for advanced skiers, but includes a wider, 102mm last for your foot. This includes a seamless liner as well as a moldable liner for a custom fit. These are Gripwalk boots.
Lange LX 120 HV GW Ski Boots · 2023
The lightweight design ensures efficiency, quick response and power transfer all while having a very versatile boot. Lange created this boot for wider feet in mind and the boot is fully customizable with both liner and shell being moldable. If you go with this option I highly recommend getting them custom molded.
Nordica HF 100 Ski Boots · 2023
102mm last best for wider feet. These feature a handy instep volume control that allows you to give more or less room around your mid step. Good for those who need the easiest boot to get into. These boots feature rear entry technology
