Round 5 – Boot Selection, Resort Choice, Pick 13For a hard-charging big-mountain boot that also works up the bootpack and on rocky ridgelines, it’s hard to find anything like the Tracker 130. Built around a 98mm last and Atomic’s burly Enduro Chassis, the Tracker is all that anyone but a World Cupper will need for skiing big mountains in any condition. It’s definitely not an AT boot, as it’s geared more toward performance on the descent. But the walk mode, called Power Control Release, means that it doesn’t work against you on a climb, and a grippy rubber sole ensures confidence on sketchy scrambles. If you have the extra coin and spend lots of time in your boots, throw down for the version with the Intution liner. Your feet will thank you.
