For winter sports enthusiasts, spending countless hours pouring over gear reviews to find the latest and greatest for the upcoming season is par for the course. For those gear heads, it's unimaginable to think about using the same skis or boards we used just five seasons ago. Let's take a trip back further than your 2009 Salomon ski boots that you have hidden in the back of your closet to a time when gear just looked, well, funny.

Those ski boots from 2009 are starting to look pretty high-tech now, aren't they? Thank goodness for innovation! 

For those of you who worry about having nightmares about using any of these ancient contraptions, put your mind at ease by heading over to the Telluride-based Wagner Custom Skis & Snowboard site and give yourself something amazing to dream about!
