Home / Skiing / Top 10 Things You Should Never Be Without On The Ski Hill – Number 7: Good Socks

A good pair of socks will complete your setup. Ski/Snowboard specific socks are designed to wick the water from your skin to the next layer. This keeps you dryer which makes you warmer. You should put your socks on right before you hit the slopes, in a warm environment, insuring that you are starting off dry. If you put your socks on at home and drive to the hill, that trip can cause you to sweat and add unwanted water to your boots. If you are someone who sweats a lot bringing a second pair to put on after a break is a good idea. If you have followed all our tips and have a good base layer, a warm, good fitting pair of boots, you have dressed appropriately with winter specific clothing, all your extremities are protected from the elements, you have fueled up, you put your socks on right before you hit the slopes in a warm environment, you are participating in an active sport and you still have cold feet, you have cold feet. Don’t worry; we have things that can solve that. We stock heat packs that are good for one time use and once they are exposed to the air they heat up for several hours. They work great and are an outstanding option for those really cold days, however they only work for a day and can be fairly bulky. A second option is a rechargeable, battery powered, electronic boot warmer. This option is more permanent, but its minimalistic design allows the user to adjust multiple settings to pick the perfect level of warmth and with a short recharge you can be ready for the next day.
