Best All Mountain Snowboard Boots 2024

Updated December 7, 2023

All mountain snowboard boots are the jack-of-all-trades in the snowboarding world. They’re designed to handle any terrain you throw at them, offering the perfect balance between stiffness for speed and flexibility for tricks. Plus, they come with just the right amount of dampening to cushion those landings without sacrificing the feel of the board. Here are my top picks for 2023:

The Ride Lasso has earned its reputation as a top choice for snowboarders, thanks to its versatility and innovative tech.

Read my full review of the Lasso ->

Features:

  • Best-selling boot in the U.S., known for its adaptability.
  • Tongue-Tied Lacing System with nylon cables.
  • BOA Lacing System that ensures a snug fit.
  • Heat Moldable Intuition Liner for a custom fit right from the start.

There are lots of boots on the market with this kind of dual Boa, but I’m loving the switch from steel to nylon for the Boa cables in for the 2023 model; there is a little amount of give in the nylon that eliminates pressure points and makes the boot even more comfortable.

What I liked:

  • Versatile and suitable for all types of riding
  • Fully heat moldable for a custom feel
  • Excellent heel hold

What I didn’t like:

  • Price point might be a bit steep for some
