  1. New boots!

    By the end of last year I was cursing my boots and suffering my third consecutive year of black toenail. On my last trip I believe I had half a dozen sessions with fitters trying to make the pain stop and it was during one of these sessions that I was told that my feet were just about perfect for the Fischer Soma last. I also had the chance to try on the new Dalbello KR2 which is an update of the boot I've been in for the past five years or so and said updates pleased me very much.

    Skied Mary Jane, Winter Park

    Skied with (a different) Bill
