Driving in snowboard boots, tried it?
 
Just wondering how much suck it does to drive in snowboard boots. I got a big SUV so got plenty leg room for boots.:blink:

I've driven from a friends house north of Rutland to Killington (about 25-min) and it wasnt terrible. Once you get a feel for the gas and brake its just like driving with any other shoe/boot. if you have them tightened up and ready to jump out the car and hit the slopes it may be a bit more difficult for ankle movement.

I don't know..... maybe put your boots on and drive? Let us know how it goes! If you could write a review that would be great as well, possibly a GoPro edit if you have time??

It sucks, like really bad. That being said I still do it quite a bit... If you don't lace them up it helps but make sure you tuck your laces in if you do this. I've had them snag on a hook of my other boot while trying to stop and that was no fun.

So can someone explain to me WHY you would even want to drive your car in snowboard boots? Does everyone not own a pair of regular walking boots or something? LOL

You nailed it. Whats the purpose of a boot if you can't snowboard in it :dunno:

Yeah it does suck especially if you drive a stick. I've done it in my old golf and only because we parked at a lift that decided they are not going to open. I had my gear on and only had to drive a few minutes so I kept them on. It's not impossible but I wouldent want to drive the hour it usually takes with boots on.
I imagine a big automatic truck would be fine tho.

Yup I drive a tiny manual s10 pickup. Playing with all the pedals in boots is a little like Russian Roulette but it makes the drive interesting right? :laugh:
