We’re hearing form a lot of skiers using their Dodge carbon fiber ski boots for Alpine Touring.  And why not?  The Dodge Boot weighs about a pound less per boot than a typical AT boot and, when combined with a plate touring binding system still weighs about the same as a dedicated AT boot/binding setup, but with superior downhill performance.
