Pull on the Orions and aim for the stars.

my feet are happy campers
Feb. 27 was an epic snow day in North Idaho. I chose Silver Mt. to play. That resort has some serious issues with lift mechanics. As I waited for lifts to be restored, I hiked a blue run called Silver Belt in my Ride Orion boots. It was no easy task, but even afterwards my feet were happy campers all due to my boots. I was able to continue to ride deep powder and groomed runs when that mountain got some of its *#$% together with no fatigue. I have permagrin just thinking about my boots and playing in them again soon.
Super comfy and even after a hard day of shredding my feet have little if any fatigue or stress points from the boots. As long as my bindings are adjusted correctly, my feet stay warm even in subzero temperatures with just 1 pair of smart wool socks on. They also give plenty of support for riding black runs and skier made moguls. They are cute but who cares about that because you can't see boots much under bindings and pants.
whats the difference between the ride orion...
whats the difference between the ride orion and the ride sage? is one better then the other?
The sage is a better boot. It has a lacing system that is easy to use as opposed to standard laces.
Unfortunately we are artic cold and have only a few bunny runs open at the local resorts, but just stepping into them feels like slippers. I have done a little indoor training with them and they still give a lot of support. I will update as I get out for some serious rides.
last years beauties
I have the orion boots from last year! And freak'n love'em! They have these sweet little metal nautical stars on the side of the boot (sad they are not on these, cuz these are sick too!) They are super light and comfy! Not too stiff either! They held up under aggresive snowmobiling and snowboarding!
