how to test for heel lift?

I just got my Salomon boots, and I was wondering how to test if there is heel lift?

If I just lean forward like I am on a snowboard, its very secure, Im assuming this is the right way to test. I was just wondering because I was able to get my heel move a tiny bit if I put a lot of pressure on my toes trying to get it to lift which I would assume is normal?

thanks

IMO that sounds fine.. personally i use to tie up really tight b/c of everyone talking about heel lift. recently i have been loosining my boot since i have an understanding for the mechanics of riding. My heel doesn't move much but its tottaly immobile/ but thats just my personal preferance
