Never ending boot saga continues

Today was a conpletely different experience after messing with cuff alignment. I felt like I could tackle anything, and had zero pain. Zero.

Before I messed with the cuff alignment, I realized that I was getting outer calf pain on my right leg because I was trying really hard to get on my edges on that ski and my leg was taking the strain. Once I turned it to the + on the inside and the - on the outside to an equal amount, it changed everything in a good way. I know that is not the ideal way to do that, but hey.... I had an Allen wrench, some pain, and a hypothesis. Lol it worked.
Nothing wrong at all with easy little tweaks like that just to see how it affects things. If it doesn't work, you move them back. Bonus is it DID work. :thumbsup:

Do the boots still feel too stiff? It sounds like not.

There's a lot to be said for DIY bootfitting and on-snow-trial-and-error. I'm all for it.

Not anymore since getting all the other issues taken care of. My edging was fixed by the cuff alignment, so it wasn't the boot stiffness at all.

I plan on calling him when I get home to let him know and possibly planning a day trip to Jack frost (if still open) to bring him cookies and beer lol.
If you find yourself at Jack(son) Frost in the next weekend or two, let us know. Maybe we can all take some runs together. We're more often at Montage, but do go to Jack Frost a few times a season.

Welllllllll, last day is ending a bit early. DH had a mishap. And literally broke his snowboard in half on a tree. Didn't make it to the peak. :(

He is okay, thankfully. It could have been way worse.

Oh no! Glad he's OK! We had a friend break one of his skis out west a few years ago. Broke it hucking a very small cliff/jump. Landed weird or maybe on something buried in the snow and RIP ski.

Wow, definitely better his board than the tree! That's a bummer, but overall, a good trip it sounds like.
