Tring to figure out where to buy my first pair of ski boots at. I'm looking to pay somewhere between $300 and $400 for a good pair of intermediate to advanced boots. Should I look to these two places or are there others I should conisider.

I just bought a pair of Atomic Izor 7:5 size 168. Should that influence the type of boots that I buy?

No ... you foot should !
Go to the Ski Center. Tell them: "I need a pair of boots - here's my feet"...and let a profession boot fitter do his job. My biggest mistake was telling them WHAT I wanted. They played hell trying to make my choice fit - they never did. I asked for some specific Lange's, but didn't realize, Lange's are made for the man used to high heels. LOL Pro skiers know what I mean. My wide American foot was more geared toward Tech's or Rossi's. A professional boot fitter can match you with a brand (if you want a pair that fits).

This time of year, you can find high end expert boots for around $275-325 (regular $550-650). For intermediate boots, shoot for the $150-200 range if it's 05/06 gear. The shops should be cutting deals about now.

Make an appointment with either Brian Beaumont or Brian Eardly at Ski Center. They are both very knowledgable and excellent boot fitters.

They guarantee the boot fit and any subsequent alterations will be gratis.
