Why buy a Burton hail (a 250 dollar boot) if you are new to the sport? Go with the Moto with the speed laces. Much more reasonably priced. Then invest in some insoles, I ride Hail's myself (and love them) but I need to replace the insoles. Burton Hail's are a relatively soft boot and while they can definitely ride any terrain, the airbag setup is somewhat designed for park riding. Gear won't make you a better rider. Save the 100 bucks and go buy more lift tickets.

*edit* this is IF you are gung ho about Burton Boots. As mentioned there are plenty of great boots to be had.
