I live on the west coast of the USA. I ride mt. Baker, mt. Bachelor, Crystal mt, Whistler mt (BC canada). I have size 13.5 boot and my foot is still growing, cuz im only 15 years old
Also i the only one i can demo is probably the ride highlife ul. But i dont really think it make that much of a difference if i demo or not. I've hear good things about the nidecker but i dont really know since it is not made in the usa.
