But, to be more specific, we’re also stoked about accolades this month for the Hurricane from Skiing Magazine’s testers.
In this year’s Skiing Magazine’s Annual Gear Guide, the boot section opens by preaching the gospel of skiing with this nugget of wisdom: “as the interface between you and your skis, boots are your most crucial piece of gear.”
So, winning a 2011 ‘Tester’s Choice’ Award in the boot category has us pretty excited, especially because we weren’t just up against other manufacturers of backcountry boots, but all the alpine boot makers as well.
According to the review, the Hurricane “earned tester praise for their downhill power and ability to drive big skis over challenging terrain — inbounds and out.” Need we say more?
No, but we might anyway: did we mention they’re also four pounds a boot?
OK, now we will — as our own sticker suggests — shut up and ski.
