Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Ski socks

Agree, I tried some SK2's, too thick for me, so the SK4's should be ideal. Current boots were done in my thin ( worn out) smartwools,

I can’t wear wool - Colin sells some Monnet socks (black and orange) which don’t have any wool content. Can’t fault them.

I have 3 pairs. As does the Mrs!

You can sometimes pick them up in TK Maxx.

You are right. They are not that important. Just use orinary socks

I suppose it depends on your feet and boots. My old ski boots were a bit too big for me, and any pair of socks worked really well. I used Bridgedales. My new boots are a much closer fit, they're fantastically more fun to ski with but my socks were too thick - my feet always felt pinched, cold, and uncomfortable. My bootfitter asked me to try new socks before they would blow out the boot - I switched to Smartwool Ultralights and have been in boot bliss ever since.

So what counts as "not that important" really depends on you. Skiing is (for me) a very expensive hobby, but in the grand scheme of things the £20 I spent on a pair of good socks is not that important.
