Magazines, movies, and the interwebs would have you believe that frontside skiing is a shameful act on par with double-dipping shared French fries and cutting off grandmas in the lift line, but they've got it all wrong. Huge cliffs and neck-deep powder might make for great photos, but tearing up perfect corduroy in the Rossignol Pure Elite 120 Women's Ski Boot is just as fun, and the best part is everyone else is too busy being cool to enjoy it. The Pure Elite was inspired by race boots. Rossignol designed it with a snug 98mm last and stiff, but light, Sensor Blade shell to serve up a snug and precise fit without weighing you down or crunching your toes into dust. It comes with a 120 flex, but Rossignol built in a flex adjuster in the cuff if you want to dial things back a bit, and also included a removable spoiler and canting adjustment to let you change your forward lean and ankle alignment, respectively. Four micro-adjustable buckles provide near-endless volume adjustment, and the 40mm power strap locks the whole package down for a powerful, responsive feel when you're laying your skis over and milking those carves for all they're worth. A snug, high-performance boot needs to be comfortable, too, which is why Rossignol hooked the Pure Elite up with a heat-moldable Women's OptiSensor T1 liner. Not only does it provide fully customizable comfort to keep your toes, anklebones, and other foot bumps comfortable, but it has a layer of merino wool to provide killer insulation, moisture management, and odor resistant, so your toes stay cozy, your socks stay dry, and your boots stay fresh as daisies even after a season of hard riding. Rossignol also topped the Pure Elite off with removable soles, which can be replaced with available WTR rockered soles to make hiking and walking easier and safer.

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.
