As a full-time ski instructor my gear sees 100+ days of skiing per year. I know that something is performing when it never enters my steam of consciousness, leaving me free to focus on my guests. Point6 socks are in that realm. I have four pair of the Ski Carve Light and a new pair goes on every day. After three seasons on the same four pair they are as fresh as day one, and for me strike the ideal balance between power transmission, absorption and warm while being in my boots from 0830 to 1630. If you are serious about your skiing take a serious look at these socks. If you need more volume in your boots Point^ makes this sock in a range of weights.
