Well after ten years of skiing on used boots my good friend Pete over at Backdoor Sports here in the ski town of Steamboat Springs Colorado tempted me with a great new boot that I just could not pass up. The Garmont Endorphin alpine touring boot.
I ski Steamboat exclusively and if you have ever skied here you know that Steamboat is known for two things, champagne powder and tree skiing. Unfortunately, when the mountain is in full season and the tourists are all over it the best runs are a hike out to the very top where the chairs don’t take you. The Garmont Endorphin MG makes these hikes a pleasure to deal with. The liner is heat molded the day you purchase them to fit you perfectly without pain your first day skiing them. They have a stiff feel while freeriding and a tremendous amount of comfort while in hiking mode. One lever to flick and the boot becomes soft and compliant hiking boot. The bottom line is.. If you hike out when you alpine you want these boots. Thanks for hooking me up with an amazing boot Pete!
