Snowfield Touring Boot

Spend snow-filled days in the backcountry with your Nordic skis attached to Alpina's Snowfield Touring Boot. This touring boot balances between burliness and comfort for long days in isolated territory. Its durable leather upper contrasts with the soft lining with Thinsulate insulation to keep your feet warm and protected from terrain and harsh winter weather. A moderate flex makes the Snowfield supportive enough for long days on rough terrain.

The Snowfield styles Alpina's wide BC last that allows your foot to splay naturally for even more comfort on the track, and the TX-Loop Lacing assures a snug, secure fit from toe to heel. Underfoot, this boot boasts an anatomic footbed to improve stability, and the BC III sole accommodates NNN BC bindings.

Hurt my feet

I've used it several times

The boot is fairly warm and felt ok when I first tried it on, but I have used it 3 times and each time it hurt my feet. The problem happens when the boot flexes, the thicker rubber material deflects downwards and lands on top of my foot. After hundreds of ski glides it gets pretty painful. So far, I have had to cut all of my trips in this boot short due to feet hurting.

Nice boot but not waterproof

I returned this product before using it

I wanted a new boot that would fit like my old Alpina's so I bought this boot. The tongue looked like it would leak so I tested it. It isn't even water resistant. Snow under a gator would easily get into the boot. That isn't what I want in a XC boot. I don't understand why a Nordic Boot wouldn't be made to keep your feet dry.

All Day Comfort

I've used it several times

I have these paired with the Rottafella Magnum BC Bindings and than the Alpina Control 64 and these boots have exceeded expectations. This have a great amount of insulation which keeps your feet and toes plenty warm, with the leather upper and burly plastic toe piece offer great protection from the elements. The fit and feel of these boots are superb, and I have never got a blister or even the slightest hint of one. The ankles are tight and supportive without being overly cumbersome. I was surprised by how light these were for being so burly and could not be happier. I would recommend these for any looking for a good BC boot that is not to burly but provides great support and comfort.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I don't have much to compare these to, as I'm new to cross country skiing, but my initial impression is that I'm impressed by the amount of comfort they offer. The inside is soft and plush, and they offer enough support without being super rigid.

A good boot.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is an initial review (Jan 19th, 2017). I am writing as a customer who recently purchased this boot, and has used it. It being winter now, I am sure others are looking for ski gear, and want to offer some initial impressions following my first time out on these. If the review isn't updated, take it as I have remained pleased with my purchase. First, I don't think the initial description on this item is clear enough, but these boots are for NNN BC bindings. I bought this for backcountry skiing in Colorado, when laying out timber sale boundaries in deep snow. Skis have proved a quicker method of travel than snow shoes, especially at the end of the day when the truck is back downhill. I was able to use these boots for the first time this past week. My first day using them I was on skis for 6 hours straight, save for a half hour lunch break. Pros: No blisters! Feet were warm. I was wearing Darn Tough socks, and I was keeping a consistent level of activity. Temperature was in the mid to upper 30s (Fahrenheit), so not too cold. My feet didn't feel overheated either though. Even once out of the skis, the boots are still comfortable to walk around in. Soles have a medium flexibility, so I am still able to give a slight kick, but not over-exert my toes. While my legs were certainly upset with me, my feet remained happy. Cons: I think a stiffer tongue would be nice, as the soft tongue on these boots tends to bunch up when tightening the laces. I would prefer a slightly wider toe, but that's just me. I am just slightly wider than a D width for standard shoes. Also, there is no ring for attaching snow gaiters. This is not a huge issue, as I think I will probably fix a key-ring to the center lace loop at the bottom of the tongue, but I feel backcountry ski boots ought to have this feature built in. Final thoughts: I think this is a good buy. Especially for a novice backcountry skier such as myself. If you like the NNN-type binding, and want to go off trail, you can't go too wrong with these.


I just ordered these in a 41. I usually wear a 40.5. Any idea on Alpina's fit? Big/small?
