IMPORTANCE OF PROPER SKI SOCKS
What is the most important piece of ski gear? Ski boots, of course. However, don't overlook the importance of your ski socks. Your ski socks act as the base layer for your feet. The function of a sock begins with its fibers. Ski socks that use natural fibers such as wool or silk will have properties that regulate heat, manage moisture, and provide a comfortable fit. Most socks use a combination of synthetic and natural fibers.
