Women's Ski & Snowboard Socks

Women’s ski socks and snowboard socks to keep toes and feet warm and dry, whether your preferred venue is nordic, alpine, backcountry, or backyard.

Durability, breathability, and adaptive warmth – just three reasons Merino Wool makes the best ski socks for women. Merino Wool balances natural insulation with temperature regulation and moisture wicking to keep your feet comfortable for a long day on the mountain. 

For extra in-boot comfort, choose one of our Midweight cushioned sock styles – some have padded shins, and they're comparatively thicker socks. If you prefer a lightweight, next-to-skin feel, our high performance ultralight snow socks are a top choice of serious skiers and snowboarders alike, ideal if you ski light and fast. Still a thin sock but with more to it, a Lightweight pair of socks let you pick a jersey knit or specific to so ski targeted cushion that wraps the toes and reaches up the Achilles.

When your boots do come off, Merino’s anti-odor properties mean the socks don’t have to. So go ahead and style those polar bear socks (or the yeti socks – we can never pick our favorite) around the lodge.

The best women’s ski socks are made from Merino Wool. Darn Tough ski socks keep feet dry and select styles are knit with terry loop cushioning in the shin for added comfort in ski boots. They’re also naturally odor resistant and reinforced around the heel and Achilles for multi-season durability.

You only need to wear one pair of ski socks on the mountain, but we recommend bringing at least two pairs if you’re going on a trip. Darn Tough Merino Wool ski socks are engineered for multi-day use but having an extra pair will make switching socks after a long day a soothing reward.

Darn Tough ski socks are made from Merino Wool, with Nylon and Lycra Spandex strategically added in for the right fit and extra durability. The inherent qualities of Merino Wool – like being able to wick moisture – with its lightweight composition make it the best material to knit ski socks with.

The warmest ski socks are Midweight and have terry loop cushioning in the shin and supportive cushioning underfoot. Darn Tough Merino Wool ski socks are designed to keep you warm in the coldest conditions. We test our socks in Vermont’s coldest winters to ensure they keep you warm wherever you ski.

Your ski socks should be thick enough to keep you warm but not so thick they limit range of motion or restrict circulation in your legs. Darn Tough knits ski socks ranging in thickness, with our Midweight socks being the thickest and our Ultra-Lightweight being the thinnest.
