Scarpa T1 Telemark Boot
As Scarpa likes to call it, this is the one and done telemark boot. The T1 has basically been the standard for telemark boots for a handful of years now. With the simple to use walk/ski mode and yet all the support of a fixed cuff boot, the T1 will help you keep your turns tight in and out of bounds. The T1 is a four buckle boot with an active power strap to drive any board. The Intuition Pro G Liner will keep your feet comfortable and warm day after day. The T1 is also made with 100% RNew Pebax, keeping down the Carbon footprint for Scarpa and you.

Very stiff and make my feet go to sleep. Cant' wait until the break in period is over. I have better control of my ski then with my old Scarpa boots of 14 years that are worn out.
In my experience, the Scarpa T1 is "the standard" in high performance telemark boots. I have been skiing this boot and previous versions for 15 years. It's a hard charging tele boot for both serious tele skiers and those that just want to get into it because the support is solid, the flex action is just right, and they are comfortable. After break-in, I seriously call these boots my slippers and I can ski all day in them.
I have skied the T1 for almost 20 years now and my new boots are no exception to the rule of "Scarpa makes great boots". The bomber buckles and walk mode initiation are super easy! Also really stoked on the intuition liner. General point- if you're still tele skiing, you should be extremely thankful that this is still being produced! Best tele boot of all time!
