If we could offer a simple formula for guaranteed success doing any snowsport, the formula would include the simple variable called Socks. Even though the technology and insulation has improved in downhill ski boots, snowboard boots and cross country ski boots, a good pair of socks is still essential. One pair of lightweight or medium weight socks works best for skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. Socks are made from a variety of materials, including polyester, silk, merino wool, traditional wool, bamboo, and more. Socks designed specifically for snow sports have wicking properties similar to thermal underwear, meaning your feet will stay drier and more comfortable. The most important thing to remember about socks is “DON’T WEAR COTTON!” Cotton does not wick, absorbs water, is not insulative and stays cold when it is wet.
There are many snowsport sock companies out there and we have tested and researched most of them. We offer for sale, versatile, warm, durable socks for all snowsports at a very reasonable price.
