Default Out with hails, in with k2 ufo's

Well I listened to some solid advice from my bud and a number of people on this forum. I spent a couple hours trying on at least 10 boots over the course of 3 nights. Final decision was the K2 UFO with the double boa system. What a night and day difference in comfort between the two. As discussed by members of this forum, I am sure the Hails are the bomb for certain people and certain feet. The K2's are just dreamy. I have had them heat molded and on my feet for the last 2 hours. Wow. What a great boot. When I used to ride back in the day my setup was a K2 Fatbob and clicker system. Both were great. K2 continues to improve on quality and I am very impressed. Can't wait to get them on the mountain. By the way....it snowed in Calgary last night. Booyah!

Did you check the web cam footage from Sunshine or Castle today?.... Nothing, just dirt.... Depressing.

How can I be depressed when I am sitting here with a Samuel Adams in hand and wicked comfortable boots on my feet. Life is good! Now I just need some of those snowboard vids you have at your fingertips.

They've got the guns going at Nakiska. Should be open first again this year...



Oh yeah, congrats on the boots! I was thrilled when I finally put the time into trying on a million pairs and getting ones that actually fit.

Thanks man. My bud and I sipped a couple pints tonight at Brewsters McKenzie Towne in celebration.....lol

I am so stoked. We should meet up for a quiet pint before the season is in full swing. We just won't talk politics.
