A. Ski socks are designed for skiing so they are a really good investment. Ski socks/tubes are usually longer in length with slight padding on the heel and shins for added comfort inside your ski boots. Ski socks come in a variety of thicknesses so if you find that you do not necessarily need or want a really thick pair there will still be a pair to suit you.
You should not wear cotton socks skiing. When your feet get hot, which they will when you’re working hard on the slopes, they will soak up all the moisture and retain it, making your feet cold.
