    I thought women's feet were narrower than men's feet, and thus a woman trying on a man's boot would probably find it too big. Can ski boots that are too big or too wide cause pain?

    Thanks 406 for your kind offer.

    To the guys that thought I was trolling: don't go into detective work. :)

    Started taking ballet lessons today. That will help with much needed conditioning.

    WENT TO FIRST MEET Tuesday, and met the team captain and some teammates, and looked over the race course. It's a black diamond.

    I plan on being real careful. If I don't think I can race safely, and I already know in the beginning I won't be able to, I'll tell the captain. My plan in the meantime is to show up for the...

    It's for real, when I signed up for the team I thought telemarking was cross country skiing, and your right.

    Actually, I exaggerated. I alpine skied once at Mt. Snow in Vermont 45 years ago, which was mostly about falling; and then skied the Thursday night special at Mt. Vernon/Great Gorge in NJ three...

    Oh. I looked up the skis and they were about $350, and the bindings were about the same, so I thought I was getting a pretty good deal. I paid $100 for the setup, and they look almost new. They...

    That's encouraging.

    I bought the bindings mounted to Atomic TM-22s. I'm not sure if I mentioned that in my original post and you saw that but then edited it, or if you are referring to foam...

    Interested.
    I'm 12.5 US wide. According to the Mondo chart, that's my size.

    I could use the skis also, if they don't cost too much to ship.

    Thanks a lot.

    I would have started my own thread to ask that question, but I can't find the way to start a new thread.
