My son is going into his 2nd year of ski racing; he has grown out of his old boots, so I'm on the hunt for a new pair. Any suggestions?
Does anyone have experience with Herr Vaughnster Snowboards??
I am a ski racer also, and I have Tecnicia Pro 90 boots and I love them. It all depends on the athlete. If your son is an aggresive skier you should go with a very stiff boot, if not then you should go with a flexible boot. Make sure that when you buy the boots, you don't get a size even a little too big, because they will stretch out. It might be a good idea to go to a race boot fitter, they will know exactly what you are looking for.

The only suggestion I would have is to go to a ski shop. They carry what you need, and the shop people will point you in the right direction. All major brands make junior race/ski boots, so if you don't find what you are looking for in size, fit, or appeal, then keep shopping around.
Depending on his age, you will be buying a pair of ski boots every year, since a good race boot needs to fit fairly exactly, you can't really go a size big. Which is what I do with my kids, but we don't race, we just ski.
My whole family (including me) used to race...it gets tiring fast, although some people really get into it!
