You're day consists of big drops under the tram, trenching turns on the way back to the groomer, pow laps off the backside, and a dusk touring mission to cap it all off. Your boots better be prepared for much of the same, and the Tecnica Men's Cochise 130 Pro Ski Boot would be an excellent choice. This is Tecnica's cream-of-the-crop, mack daddy, highest-man-on-the-totem pole boot, for touring or big mountain skiing. The Cochise 130 offers a 130 flex, a shell with gobs torsional rigidity, a ski/walk mode that locks into ski mode like a traditional, fully-rigid alpine boot, and the sole blocks are interchangeable. By now you should have some hint as to why this boot rocks a 'Pro' in the title. Tecnica reinterpreted what an big-mountain, AT boot could be when it created the Cochise line. You'll find heaps of power on tap and all the little details that make the difference when you're touring to a secret stash or hammering laps off the tram. The ski/walk mode is a metal-on-metal affair, the cuff locks completely into the lower shell in ski mode (there's no drifting or sloppiness), and the sole blocks are interchangeable between DIN alpine blocks and Tech/Dynafit compatible blocks. The Cochise offers a medium-to-high instep and a medium-width forefoot fit on the inside. Unless you're used to race-stock alpine or plug product, the Cochise 130 should be all you need to get as close as possible to a 'no compromise' AT and big mountain boot. Slide your foot into the custom-fit liner, micro adjust each of the three buckles, wrench down the monstrous power strap, and get cranking into the backcountry or at the resort.
