...Funny how that seems to happen like that!! (...I wonder, do first time skiers do the same thing? Run right out & buy a shiton of gear before or after their 1st-2nd time out??) Welcome to the "Addiction" is Right!!

If you read around this forum a bit, you'll discover that that issue, is pretty common even among folks without the special fit issues you had! Don't worry, I went thru 3-4 pairs before finding ones that fit comfortably for me! (...Oh, FYI, you want to watch just how tight you are synching the boots & your bindings. NooB's like me & others sometimes go WAY too tight on both at first, and that will cause a LOT of foot pain problems! If you're doing the same, that may NOT b a boot fit issue!!!)

Thank you all for being so supportive and awesome. I had a great time and will be heading back up next week.

...Only fell 3 times?? I think anyone here would count that as a BIG win!!!
AWSOME JENNIFER!!!!! after my first time, inside of my thighs hurt S-o-o-o bad!! Couldn't lift my legs to put on pants! Had to flatten them out on the floor & step into them!! (...won't tell you what I had to do to get the socks on!) Next time out you won't be as sore afterwards!!!

WAY TO GO!!!! Seeya on the slopes!!!!!
