Default How often do you have to purchase boots?

What is the average life span of a boot for someone who maybe makes it up to the resort 30 to 50 times a year? I am all of the sudden worried that once I get into this I will have to shell out $$$ for new boots every year.

I get about 2 1/2 seasons out of a pair. averaging about 45-50 days a season. Somewhere after 100 days is where I expect the clock to really start ticking on the life span of the boot.

You should probably mark your days on a calendar to see how many you are putting in. When I say 100 days I do mean 100 full days. Not going for a few hours, but all day beat on your gear riding.

When your boots are all packed out, mushy, and your feet hurt as soon as you put your binders on, it's time for a new pair.

Yeah I get about 40-50 days in a year and I'd say 2 seasons of that and it's time for some new ones.

I go 2-3 seasons before they become so beat up and worn in that I need new ones

I started keeping track 3 boots ago and I'm over 100 days on each pair with the exception of a pair of 32 lashed that lasted 82. My fault though.

I ride pretty hard, although not nearly enough days as I'd like, so I get a new pair every 1-2 seasons.
