I’m a dirtbag at heart, content to wear ratty second-hand clothing covered in duct tape—but one thing I won’t scrimp on is socks. Warm, comfortable feet are a must, and the new Ski Light OTC from Point6 is just what the ski doctor ordered. Premium-grade merino wool provides softness and warmth, and Point6’s compact-spun yarns make for a more comfortable and durable sock. A special Achilles pad holds your heel in place for a superior boot fit. The Ski Light OTC also has minimal cushioning for support where it’s needed without bulk where it’s not. $21; point6.com.
