Men's Ski & Snowboard Socks

Men’s ski socks and snowboard socks built for nordic, alpine, and backcountry snow days to keep your toes warm and dry run after run… after run.

We knit our Merino Wool ski socks for men in three weights. For spring skiing, race days, and that foot-sock-boot connection, our ultralight ski socks star our finest yarns, more like a second skin than a sock. You'll ski light and fast in the high performance Pennant RFL.

If you still want thin ski socks but a tad extra warmth, our lightweight socks strike the perfect balance. Many include pro-level tech features, like the Backwoods’ segmented padded shin. The targeted cushion was developed with pro snowboarder Jake Blauvelt, for a men's snowboard sock with the perfect balance of moisture management, impact protection, and breathability.

If you're looking for a pair of ski socks to keep cold feet toasty warm, our Over-the-Calf midweight ski socks are for you. Midweight socks with cushion are our warmest snow socks, for days when the cold weather won’t keep you off the powder.
