When we got back to the condo we checked it out and due to the binding type I can't bring them back anymore - they are already as far back as they can go without messing with my stance (by turning the binding plates) which I can't change due to the problems with my right knee and the weird angle I have to have to alleviate the pain in my right knee. And I don't want to change the highbacks which I know would bring the foot back. I'm not into carving at my age, just want to get down the mountain having fun and didn't notice my toes digging in on the diamond runs. I've been guys in the lift lines where their toes are almost 2" hanging over on their toeside - so thought maybe it wouldn't be a problem with me. I'll see how it goes tomorrow - but I'm superstitious and don't want to jinks anything by changing something after my great day today!!
