After decades of producing high-end boots for world-class athletes and comfortable boots for devoted recreationists, Alpina created the ASK Skate Boot as an in-between option for skate skiers who are seeking a happy medium between comfort and performance. Borrowing from both Alpina's Sport series and Competition series, the ASK boot combines a stiff boot flex and adjustable ankle support with an Anatomic Racing footbed to create a chassis that delivers power to your ski and gives you precise control without punishing your foot with a crushing race-oriented fit. Since you want to improve your skiing but aren't into chasing podiums, the ASK gives you the stability and performance you need to perfect your form little by little until you're ready to move to a race-ready boot. The NNN R3 sole means that you can step right into an NNN binding, and the plastic cuff and heel counter provide support and stability that let you push the pace without making you deal with overwhelming stiffness. Perhaps best of all, Alpine lined the ASK with lightweight Thinsulate insulation, so your toes won't freeze when temps are dropping into the slightly sadistic range.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
