The perfect fit

By Maria Wyllie Explore Big Sky Associate Editor

Finding a ski boot that’s comfortable and gets the job done can be tough, but look no further – the Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring boot offers comfort, power and versatility. For skiers who plan on riding both at the resort and in the backcountry, it’s the perfect choice – and fit.

The warm Intuition liner is molded with the shell for a seamless fit, making long days feel shorter and meaning numb toes are no longer an issue when the mercury drops.

With a 120-flex index, this boot offers increased stability and has great boot-to-ski power transfer, allowing you to really give ‘er. And at 3 pounds, 13 ounces per boot (size 27), it’s still light enough that you won’t feel weighed down when skinning or boot packing. The system to switch from skiing to walk mode is easy to use, and the interchangeable Vibram sole grips nicely on rocks and scree, giving you the confidence you need before you click in and send it.

If you’re skiing in Beehive Basin or Big Sky Resort’s Headwaters Cirque; hiking the ridge at Bridger Bowl; or heading to Cooke City for the weekend, the SL Freedom may be the answer you’ve been looking for to make your powder days complete. Although the price tag is a bit hefty, your wallet can rest easy knowing this is the only boot you’ll need.
