Yes, )(ood speaks of the truth.
Even get those little elementary school gloves, you know the ones. Buddy does it all the time...then again, he's a skier

onji To be honest it was actually a piece of metal, that I think broke off the ankle of the pants, that got stuck in the boot. It's the first time anything like this has happened and I tried searching for the foreign object at the bottom of the mountain, couldn't find it, then started digging into me again. Normally I'd just wait 'til I got to the bottom again but there was a good wait on the lifts and I wanted to enjoy my ride down the rest of the mountain.

Yes, I was using rental gear, one of the reasons I'll be getting my own kit for next season.

The lacing system at the top of the Salomon F20 looks nice, I might try on a pair when I'm at the shop.

john doe Pro tip: Put your glove inside your jacket when you take it off to keep it from getting cold. Then your hand is cold for a shorter time.

If I had to take a boot off on the mountain (something I've never done, and will do my best to avoid ever doing), I'd be a lot more worried about getting snow on my foot than my hands getting a little cold.

Anyway, although I always put my boots on before my gloves when I'm getting ready, I'm sure I could reverse the order if necessary. My Salomon F20s have a powerlace system that has a little handle for the laces -- easy to pull even with gloves on. And nothing needs to be threaded.

ecks Impossible, it like trying to sneeze while peeing.

Get BOA's. I got my K2 Darkos and lace them once and adjust the ankle as needed. Like Tachypsychia, I just lift my pants and tighten with gloves on.

I do like the look of SL and BOA systems, but I'm paranoid of having BOAs break on me during a powder day.
I have a pair of DC BOA boots, and they're amazing. If the boots feel a little loose after a run (usually after the very first run of the night, getting everything adjusted) I just pull the pants up and give it a few twists. As for the breaking, These boots have seen 3 seasons of boarding, and don't look much worse for the wear.

mojo maestro Maybe ask your "mommy" to tie them for you!

mbesp I wear mitts and obviously cant do any lacing with them on but how often are you getting stuff in your boots? Once I get mine on they normally stay on pretty good. maybe your boots are a problem.

YouDork Specific product. Running gloves would work well too and they're usually < $10
02-04-2011 05:22 AM
onji Glove liners of course! Is this a specific product or can I just wear my thin cottony gloves underneath?

On the other hand I suppose I could harden the f**k up...
