    Snow Boots

    Hi Friends,

    I'm going to try mono skiing for the first time and I need to find snow boots. I have no leg or foot movement, so I can't wiggle my feet into most snow boots. Any suggestions for gear from those of you with similar experiences?

        Yeah, I would go for a boot that laces so you can loosen them up good to slip your foot in. Buy the size a little bigger so you can wear a good wool hiking sock and they'll be easier to put on. We usually go one whole size. These are a really good deal if they have your size:

          Also get the hot hands foot sole warmers. They peel and stick to your socks. I use them almost everyday at work our doors are constantly opening so my feet were frozen when I would get home even though I had winter boots on. My toes were the worst so I stick them on going over my toes a little. I generally take my boots off mid day to reactivate them. They just need some air. Being in Minnesota it has been horribly cold. My daughter in law .works outside on the air strip at the airport and she loves them also. The are better than the plain hot hands since they stay wherever you stick them. My employee wore some when she went snowboarding and also loved them. Only about a dollar each when you buy then on Amazon.

            Be careful on insensate feet. I have seen burns from these.

              This is very important to remember. Had a friend use battery socks and end up with second degree burns. Use wool socks inside your boots and change them at lunch or more often if possible. Keep your legs, especially calfs warm and this will help warm your feet.

                I use them all the time when hunting. I stick them on top of my toes but I have never experienced any problems with burns.

                    I've been using these for deer hunting in MN for 15 years. Go right over your regular shoes. They're also what I used skiing in Bozeman. Feet have never once gotten cold, even in subzero temps.

                      Here are the boots I have been using for about 5 years now and I live up in balmy Canada. I know they look a little dressy for skiing and sporting activities but they are good quality leather and the high quality sheepskin definitely helps keep the feet warm. The zippers allow you to open the boot to get your foot in easier and they are a bit higher so the help keep the ankle/lower calf warmer.

                      This sheep farm is actually located near here so I am a touch biased but that being said, they really are kick ass boots!
