    Hello everyone,

    I was hoping I could get some feedback from those who use hard boots on what types of boots you choose to ride in.

    I live in AK and do some quite long approaches. I’ve been considering switching over to a hardboot setup and, with my Drivers now blown apart, I was thinking now is the time.

    I’m planning on setting up my splitboard with the dynafit toepieces and adapters from Spark and then using the splitboard binding from Bomber. However, I am a little clueless on what types of hardboots folks like.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Please look at the following posts:

    I ride in a stock Scarpa F1, Dynafits toe pieces and the Bomber Sidewinder Bindings. See:
    Scarpa F1 and F3 and New Bomber Splitboard Binding

    I particularly like the comments made by Barrows concerning the Dynafit TLT 5 Mountain AT Boot, WOW!

    Also good information in “Why use hard boots and plates? One view”. See

    The Garmont Masterlite is super light, but the liner is really thin. Not sure but I wonder if this boot would be warm enough in Alaska. I use to live in Juneau and Anchorage, Alaska, so I know it can get real cold…. Also, I would also look for a boot that works well with crampons for use on glaciers in Alaska, since long approaches could include glacier travel.

    I’m not sure what AT boot to recommend for use with crampons or visa versa.

    The boots mentioned above all flex in the toe-box, so they are more comfortable than other AT boots, such as my Scarpa Spirit 3s.

    BTW: Jeremiah Johnson is one of my favorite movies.


    Thank you for directing me to the relevant posts on this. As I’ve never been down the hardboot road before, I’m kind of looking at what other people are using for guidance on what to buy.

    There’s still quite a bit of snowboarding to be done here in AK. So, we’ll see if I can pull this setup together before the season is over.

    Thanks again.
