Here's the perfect boot for a good skier who doesn't get too aggressive. It has only one top buckle, helping to give the boot a soft forward flex for a 120, and not much heft (just 4 pounds). We found it forgiving through bumps and crud, and when we screwed on the treaded sole, it made easy work of a 30-minute hike. [$799; salomon.com]
