The Scarpa Wasatch is what telemark boots used to be before everything got huge and plastic and sick, bro. They’re finally back in the American market, thanks to a quiet trend in the backcountry skiing world toward simpler, lighter gear, exemplified by the growing popularity of wide, single-camber, metal-edged skis with fishscale bases. (Madshus Annums, et al.) Made in northern Italy by Scarpa, this is one beautiful ski boot. With their high, stiff cuff and stout five-pound-per-pair weight, they deliver more turning power than any nonplastic boot on the market. If you know what you’re doing, you can slay serious backcountry lines with them (and look mighty fine in the process). Once they’re broken in—which takes several trips—you can eat up the miles in the kind of comfort that plastic-boot-wearers can only fantasize about. $370; scarpa.com.
