Luxury resorts, chairlifts, hordes of tourists, and a total lack of wildlife aren't the sort of things that make you want go up in the mountains during winter. You're up there to blaze your own trail through the deep snow, spot a moose or two, and enjoy a little peace and quiet away from the chaos of modern life, and it's adventures like these that require the Alpina Wyoming Touring Boot. This backcountry offering from Alpina is built for off-trail adventures deep into snow-covered woods thanks to its natural leather upper, Thinsulate insulation, and protective rand and heel counter. The Wyoming is a medium flex boot that will excel on the kind of rolling terrain you want to be Nordic skiing on, but it still has plenty of give to keep it comfortable when you're digging a snow cave or un-burying that remote cabin you periodically stay in during the course of winter. The boots are compatible with NNN BC bindings, and sport an anatomic footbed, so you're feet will remain comfortable, even when you're forced to travel across bulletproof ice and sastrugi.
