  1. Softboot carver and soon-to-be hardbooter in Flagstaff Anyone get a pass for the 20/21 season? I'll be up there on some weekday mornings for an hour or so.
  2. Agreed. My soft boots are a US 10. I used to wear 27.5's when I skied so I went with a 27 in the 325's. Thanks! I'm 160 lbs, so it sounds like I made the right choice with the 325's.

I'll be up at AZ Snowbowl on weekday mornings this season, hoping to avoid the weekend crowds (especially with COVID restrictions). I'm also hoping to do a UT/CO tour in January if it is safe. When I'm not snowboarding, I am an endurance runner and a climate scientist. I've always ridden a softboot setup but I've been interested in hardboots for a looong time. My dad even got his ha
