I searched the various threads and didn't see exactly what I was looking for, so hopefully I didn't miss something. I'm looking for recommendations for good, winter/snow rated hiking boots suitable for moderate to extreme winter conditions. My husband is set on getting full on mountaineering boots. I see the advantages and benefits of those but I just think they're going to be overkill for less strenuous trails. Am I wrong?
