So in my opinion, your best bet is to cut-out on your own and hit the slopes/trails that are within your riding ability. Be super happy about it, eager to meet back up in a few hours at the lodge,...

Anytime I've had my boots heat molded I had to stand in them for about 10-15 minutes and then they had me walk around a bit. It sounds like you got the outcome you wanted though, they're comfortable...

I use a lighter glove for everything above 25-28F. My Burton gore-tex gloves for colder days. And if it is really cold (single digits or below) then I'll switch over to my Burton mitts.

I had been riding Burton boots since the original Burton Comp boot, circa 1989 maybe? Then 3 years ago I decided to try a different brand. I went with K2 and the T1 DBs. Super comfortable, the...

Thanks. That is what I was afraid of. Over the last two years, my local shop has stopped carrying almost all Burton boots so my only real option is to buy online now. Fortunately, there is an REI...

A blaze of mediocre glory! :D That's hysterical and pretty much what I'm expecting should I get back on a skateboard and start riding my buddies' mini-half. Lots of mediocre glory!

Nice! After 20+ years, how difficult was it to pick it back up? That's about the same for me, I probably haven't been on a skateboard since my early 20's.

I agree with others, you'd be good on a 158. That said, don't get too caught up on it. I'm a lot bigger than you and I ride everything from a 154 to a 168. I can't rail on the 154 at top speed but...
