Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Portable boot dryers

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi guys!

All the times I went skiing I had a ski room where I could dry my boots during the night.
This time I booked a chalet that doesn't have that, so I'm thinking about buying one of those portable boot dryers.

1 - Does it work as good as the big ones in the ski rooms ?
2 - Do you recommend any specific one ?

Cheers!

We use Thermic Boot dryers
Work fine for us.
There is even a 12v version so you can have your boots nice and warm when driving to the slopes.

I was about to recommend the excellent Hotronic Snapdry which I have used for few years. But I just checked and it appears they stopped making it Sad

It was the only one I found which works on 110V as well as 240V, for use in USA/Canada and Japan.

Reviving this...
@Awdbugga , does this kind of dryer really works on wet boots ? I saw many reviews of those kind of "slip in" dryers and many people said that they only make it warm, don't really dry it.
Did u have any problems ? Also, how long does it take to dry ?

I have an old pair of Dampire silica gel packets that aren't too bad, however these Drysure "extreme" re-boots are now kicking around....

@AndreSilva, I guess it depends upon what you class as "really wet". My boots are damp at the end of the day. I leave the heaters in over night and they are bone dry in the morning. I take two pairs of gloves and have the heaters in yesterday's gloves during the day whilst I am out skiing.

I bought a pair of the drysure for my daughter’s ski boots as she sometimes suffers a little bit if they get damp. Had a few trial runs on her fleece lined wellies (which are a pain to dry out inside, especially at the toes) and they worked really well. I can’t compare to other devices but can vouch for the drysures.

I decided to go for the ones @Jonpim recommended, it is something in between those slip-in dryers and those big ones, let's see how good it works Madeye-Smiley

Just an update here... it worked like a charm! A few hours and the boos were dry, same for gloves, thanks for the help!

I have the Hotronic Snapdry one, visible here

at 1:42. It cost about 80 euros. It works great and better than any ski locker driver I have seen. But it does make a bit of a noise so you need a separate room for it.
