Cool Seriously no idea!!!

So recently got out of the military and looking to board again. I have my union force from 2010 I believe and leaning towards the capita mindblower ltd (ultra fear) no idea what boots to get. I am a size 9.5 to 10 (us) and about 5'9" 170lbs. I used to ride a full burton kit from a burton rep deal but looking to go elsewhere this year anyone have ant ideas what boots go well for my current kit?

Try on boots and find someone who knows how to fit them properly for you. Brands fit everyone differently.

I'm a 32 slut (flat wide feet), who can't wear Nikes(tend to run narrow, havent fit a Nike my whole life), maybe ur the opposite, same or competely different. Burton makes some good boots, so does k2.


Mammoth (over 5 hours) and Tahoe (3 1/2 at best)are the best major spots within reach with a spattering of smaller resorts in the central sierras there a little closer like Bear Valley or Pinecrest.

SF bay is really not comfy driving distance for daytrips unfortunately.

Get a Kirkwood pass, you can avoid the busy road and approach from the other side of the Lake. They are under 400 I believe. You can also get an epic pass which lets you ride at all of the vail resorts (including Kirkwood). The wood gets tons of snow, epic riding there.

I also have a wide foot and can't fit into Burtons. My 1st pair were a set of Van's. Very comfortable, but they are a bulky boot. I got a pair of K2 last season. Love Em !! Got the boa, smaller profile, super great fit and didn't break the bank.

Like mentioned above go try them on and find what works for you.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the input guys. I too have a wide squishy foot ha so shoes are always tough to find comfy ones especially boots. I'm not actually in the sf bay I'm outside it in Fairfield/Vacaville area if that narrows it down. Buddy of mine has a cabin in Tahoe it's about a 3 hour drive. Not familiar with the other resorts that were named but will def look them up. I'm new to the area so looking for people to go with as well. Hopeing to find some good riders in hopes I can learn a thing or two ha. Boarded really well years ago but it's been a few so I'm rusty. Pm me if your in the area maybe we can plan a trip and get going this year.
