Waterproof Boots?

Just curious what kind of boots you guys wear to the Mt.? I usually just wear my work boots or some hiking type boots but they aren't waterproof.

Today I was walking around in the east coast slop we were hit with this week and my boots and socks were just soaked. So, I'm in the market for a new pair.

Let me know, thanks.

I dont wear boots. However I wear Etnies Highrises which are water resistant and have a guessed tongue to keep water out. They are really comfy and have done a really good job of keeping snow, slush, and water off of my feet and they are more comfortable than boots

These North Face snow boots that I got for a very short notice snowshoe trip. I'm pretty sure they're waterproof, plus they're plenty warm and comfy and feel great after having my feet imprisoned in snowboard boots all day. I expect I'll love them even more once I start skiing

i usually wear Sorel. most of my buddies that work at the mountain usually wear the Sorel Caribou. that boot is a beast and a bit overkill unless you're working all day in the snow. I use the Sorel 1964 PAC T...they're not as big/bulky and you can buy different liners

+1 on the Sorels. I have the Caribous and those fuckers keep me warm and dry.
