The Alpina Alaska 75 Backcountry Ski Boot is for individuals who know the pleasures of untamed nature in extreme conditions. The sturdiness of their construction allows skiers to overcome challenges such as ice and steep slopes. The front part of the boot is strongly reinforced and can cope with the most unexpected conditions. The Thinsulate insulation and superior Alpitex membrane additionally protect the foot from snow, water, and crazy cold.
I bought these for touring and turning around the hills in the front-country of the east Cascades with a pair of waxless backcountry skis. I did not buy these to be my big hill telemark boots. With that in mind, they fit the bill. Not too heavy, not too stiff, and easy to put on and get out the door without much fuss. They are stout enough to handle low to moderate slope telemarking and flexible enough to tour with in medium duty tele bindings. They are fairly comfortable out of the box, but do need some breaking in for comfortable flex. So much easier than all leather boots. I appreciate the high proportion of leather in these boots for longevity, but paired with Thinsulate and a liner for comfort.
