Another Happy Customer

We love getting letters from our customers and this one we can’t help but share!

Dear Full Tilt,

I am a 79 years old, my wife 77.  We get a lot of comments on our boots, especially from young freestyler types who think Full Tilt’s are only for the young.  NO WAY – we love the easy on and off, the adjustments, the comfort and warmth, the readily available replacement parts and everything else about Full Tilt Boots.

















The photo above was taken at Empire Canyon Lodge at Deer Valley.  You can see legs of lamb cooking in the fireplace behind us for the evening fireside dinner.  I was wearing my High Five model and my wife has her new Drop Kick model boots.  We each also have an older pair of Full Tilts, so we can alternate them.  We ski about 65 (me) or 45 (her) days a season.

Best Wishes,

Jan and Judith

UPDATE:  On Friday April 19th, Jan (pronounced “Yon,” in the Norwegian manner) skied his 80th day of the year at Alta, thus skiing his age!  Congratulations and Happy Birthday Jan from everyone here at Full Tilt.

Oct. 30. Cutting the Ribbon.

Went for a hike last Friday at Alta. My roommate/primo photog Adam Clark and I dusted off my gear and made a lap on High Boy. I was definitely a bit rusty, but it was great to get some turns in.
The video is my POV starting at mi casa, then heading up Little Cottonwood Canyon and then trailing Adam up the mountain. Original plans were to switch to my helmet cam, but it decided to have dead batteries, so I made due with my point and shoot.
And apologies for the sloppy upload. Not too sure what happened with Vimeo…
