Cold feet while skiing can ruin the whole day.
You can avoid this from happening, however, if you purchase one of the best ski boot heaters. These products are ultra useful and there’s plenty to choose from.
By the time you’re done reading this post, I’m sure you’ll see a heater you want to ski with this year.
Let’s get into it!
Hotronic S4 Universal Boot Heater
Our Rating: 4.9/5
Hotronic is one of the most well known companies when it comes to ski boot heaters and heated insoles. Their products are high quality, well made, and universally loved. One of their top heaters is this one, the S4 Custom (read full review here).
If you decide on the S4, you’ll love what you get. Many heaters only come with 3 heat settings but this one comes with a 4th. This 4th heat setting runs for 3 minute intervals and pumps a high amount of heat into your boot – this gives you more control over the exact warmth you get and keeps you comfortable at all times.
- 178 degree on highest heat setting: This is more than enough heat to prevent any foot from getting cold. Don’t worry if this is too much, though. On the lowest heat setting you get 84 degrees of heat and there’s plenty of options between that and the highest.
- 21 hours of heat on the lowest setting: Most people won’t need to run the highest heat setting all day long and will switch between high to medium to medium high and to low. If you keep on low you’ll get a whopping 21 hours of heat. On medium low you’ll get 10 hours of heat. On medium high you’ll get 7.5 hours of heat. And on high you’ll get 2.5 hours of heat (or you can run it at 3 minute intervals).
- Installs in all footwear: Another aspect you’ll like is the S4 can be used in all footwear. So if you plan on going for a hike you can take this heater out of your ski boots and put them in your hiking boots!
- One size fits all: You won’t have to guess when it comes to sizing either. You can trim the insole to fit it perfectly with your boots.
- Durable: This insole will last a long time and the battery is made to face and stand up to the coldest temperatures possible.
Here’s a video that goes over the S4 too:
Pretty cool, right?
Also, they’re very easy to install. Watch the video below and see how simple it is to install:
Anyone should be able to handle this!
While not being the most expensive heater on the market, the S4 is still pretty expensive. I personally think it’s worth every penny, though, and I think you’ll come to the same conclusion if you decide on this product.
Therm-ic RC Smartpack 1600
Our Rating: 4.9/5
Therm-ic is another well known and high end brand – besides heaters they make heated socks and heated gloves too. This product, though, the RC Smartpack 1600, is their top heater and one any person would be lucky to ski with.
One thing that really separates this product from others is its battery life. On the low heat setting you get an amazing 29 hours of heat! This is enough to keep you warm for 3 or more ski trips, which makes this heater ultra convenient.
- 3 heat settings: Like the last heater you saw, the Smartpack 1600 comes with more than 1. While this one doesn’t have 4 like the S4, it does come with 3, which should be good for everyone.
- 158 degrees of warmth on highest setting: 158 degrees is high enough to keep your feet warm in the coldest weather possible. On the lowest setting you get 99 degrees and on medium you get 113 degrees.
- Global charger: It doesn’t matter where you’re skiing in the world, you’ll be able to charge this battery pack up.
- Short charging time: Some products like this one can take forever to charge up. That’s not the case with the 1600’s and will be ready to go quickly.
- Impulse control: Besides just pumping in heat, this heater also stimulates blood flow through impulse control. This helps create natural warmth and is another reason why your feet are so warm.
- Comes with a remote: Bending over to change the heat while you’re on the slopes and with skis on your feet can be difficult. To help remedy this, you get a remote to eliminate bending over.
This product is the most expensive on this list, though, and a lot of people won’t want to spend what it takes to purchase. If you do have a little extra to spend, this product is worth the investment, however.
Keep in mind, this heater only works with Thermicsole insoles and this is true for all Therm-ic heaters. Ski boots from Atomic, Burton, Dalbello, Head and Salomon come with Thermicsoles built in already. If you have a boot that doesn’t have these insoles you’ll have to buy Thermicsole insoles separately and they cost around $40.
Thermacell Heated Insole
Our Rating: 4.7/5
Thermacell is a popular brand but it’s not quite on the same level as Hotronic or Therm-ic. This heater doesn’t have the same cutting edge technologies and won’t perform quite like the previous two products.
That’s not a deal breaker, though, for a few reasons – first being it’s much more affordable and secondly not everyone needs top of the line performance. If you expect to ski in normal conditions, this boot heater will work fine for you.
- Long lasting battery: Eventually you’ll have to replace all rechargeable batteries, which can be expensive. Luckily, this battery will last 500 charges and this means it’ll be good for several winters.
- Quick charge time: Another aspect that makes this product very convenient is it charges up quickly. It can go from dead to fully charged in about 4 hours!
- 2 heat settings: A lot of the heaters on this list have 3 heat settings but this one only comes with 2. A lot of people only really need two and won’t really need the 3rd or 4th setting.
- Comes with a remote: This is a feature I really like and I’m sure you will too. Whenever you want to switch from high to medium or turn the heat off, you can just take the remote out and do that.
- Fits all boots: This product is one size fits all. It can be trimmed to fit all boots and this will save you some stress when purchasing.
Like I said up top, this Thermacell insole is pretty affordable and costs about half as much as the ones from Hotronic and Therm-ic. That makes this product a very good value and one that’s perfect for all people on a budget.
Hotronic S4 Custom
Our Rating: 4.9/5
You’ve seen the Hotronic S4 Universal already and now it’s time to look at the S4 Custom. These products are very similar and the main difference is the Universal comes with an insole AND cover. This one, the Custom, only comes with a cover (the heating elements go over your insole and the cover goes on top to keep everything in place).
Other than that, these products are basically exactly the same. One feature that comes with both products is the 4th boost heat setting. What this does is gives you short bursts of high heat and this ensures your feet are both warm and the battery won’t die.
- 21 hours of heat: If you decide on this product you’ll get a remarkable 21 hours of heat on the lowest setting. On the highest setting you get 4.5 hours and the middle setting gives you 10 hours of heat.
- Very durable: When you have a heater, you have to make sure it’s strong and it won’t break if you fall. This heater is durable and will last for years.
- 173 degrees of heat: This is a high amount of warmth and will keep you toasty even if it’s sub zero out.
If you need to know more about this product just check out the S4 Universal above – like I said they share basically all the same features. The Custom is a little cheaper, though, and if you want to see how much you’ll save, click below:
Therm-ic 1200 Smartpack With Remote
Our Rating: 4.8/5
Here we have another Therm-ic heater (it won’t be the last) and the 1200 Smartpack is almost on the same level as the 1600. Overall, though, this battery pack and heater isn’t quite as high performing.
The main difference is the run time and how much battery life you get. With the 1600 you got an amazing 29 hours of heat on the lowest setting and with the 1200 you get around 22 hours on the lowest heat setting. While it’s 7 hours less it’s still a high amount and will keep any skier happy for more than one day of skiing.
- 158 degrees of warmth on highest setting: Where this heater is equal to the 1600 is the amount of warmth you get. On the highest setting you get an incredible 158 degrees of heat. On the lowest heat setting you get 99 degrees and the middle setting you get 113 degrees.
- Multiple heat settings: Like most of the products on this list, this one comes with a few heat settings. Besides different heat outputs, the different heat settings have different battery lives – low gets you 22 hours of heat, medium gets you 10 hours and high gets you 4 hours.
- Impulse control: Like the previous Therm-ic heater this one comes with innovative impulse control. This stimulates blood flow and creates even more warmth for your feet because of this.
- 3 hours to recharge: There’s a few heaters that take up to 8 hours to fully recharge. If you decide on the 1200, though, you’ll only have to wait 3 to 4 hours for a full battery.
I said up top there’s a difference between battery life between the 1600 and 1200. There’s another difference too – price. The 1200 costs about $100 less than the 1600. If the battery life isn’t a big deal to you then you should definitely consider this one. You’ll get comparable performance and save a little cash.
Dr. Warm Heated Insole
Company: Dr. Warm
Our Rating: 4.8/5
Dr. Warm may not be as well known as the three previous brands you’ve seen so far but this product is on the same level as them. Not only does this product provide a ton of warmth, it also provides a ton of comfort.
This Dr. Warm insole is ergonomically designed and this means its made specifically to feel good on your feet. This is definitely something you’re going to need when you’re skiing – it’ll just help you enjoy your day even more. Also, it’s shock absorbing too.
- Customize to your foot: One thing you’re going to like about this insole is you can cut away pieces of it to get an exact fit. You also know it’s going to fit into any ski boot because of this.
- Remote control: This is a feature that I really appreciate and one you will too. Instead of having to roll up your snow pants, take your gloves off and try to reach the battery to change the heat, you can just use the remote to do so.
- 3 heat settings: This isn’t the most unique feature but is one that is necessary. Some days you might need high heat, other days medium will work and there will be some days on the slopes where you’ll only need low.
- Long lasting: This insole is made to last season after season which is important. You don’t want to purchase a heater and have it wear out after your first few times out skiing.
- USB charger: The fact it can be charged in any USB port is very convenient. This means you can charge it in your car, laptop and there’s even heated jackets that come with USB ports!
This Dr. Warm insole isn’t overly pricey either and is one of the better values on this list. If you want a quality insole and don’t want to pay several hundred dollars, I would definitely consider this one.
Hotronic S3 Custom Boot Heater
Our Rating: 4.8/5
Here we have another product from Hotronic and this one, the S3, is very similar to the one you already saw, the S4. The main difference is how long the battery will last. The maximum run time for the S3 is 17 hours while the S4 was 21 hours.
This isn’t that big of a difference, though. Most people aren’t in the cold for 17 straight hours, let alone 21 straight hours. The good news is the S3 is cheaper than the S4 too.
- 4 heat settings: This product comes with an extra heat setting. The 4th setting gives high amount of heat in short bursts. This way the battery won’t drain quickly and you’ll get extra warmth.
- 173 degrees of heat: This product gives you 173 degrees of warmth on the highest heat setting. Don’t worry if this seems too high – there’s plenty of lower heat options with the other settings.
- One size fits all: This is a feature that I like a lot. You won’t have to get the perfect size insole and you can trim it away to fit perfectly into your boot.
- High quality battery: Batteries that come with heaters are pretty expensive and can cost over $100. The battery that comes with the S3 will last several hundred charges and this means you’ll get a few years before needing to replace it.
As long as you don’t mind getting a little less battery life, you’ll really like what you get here. Hotronic is one of the best companies when it comes to these products and it shows with this heater.
Therm-ic Smartpack 950
Our Rating: 4.8/5
This is the third Therm-ic product on this list and is another one you’re going to like. Of the three, however, the Samtrpack 950 is the one with least amount of battery life.
Is the battery life on the 950 bad, though? Not at all! On the lowest heat setting you still get 18 hours of warmth and that should be more than enough for you. Have you ever been skiing for more than 18 hours straight? It’s unlikely that you have.
- Easy to install: This Smartpack is really easy to get going too. All you have to do is slip it on your boot, connect it to the insole and turn it on. Doesn’t get much simpler than that!
- 3 levels of heat: This is definitely an important feature. This allows you to get the perfect amount of warmth no matter what the temperature is.
- Extremely lightweight: One concern a lot of people have with boot heaters is they might distract when you’re skiing. The 950 is ultra lightweight and you won’t even notice it on your boots.
- Global charger: It doesn’t matter where you are in the world or where your’e visiting, you’ll be able to charge this product up because of the global charger.
- Impulse control: You’ve seen this feature a few times already with other Therm-ic products and this helps stimulate blood flow in your feet. When blood flow improves this creates natural warmth.
- 158 degrees of warmth: This is a high amount of heat and will keep you toasty no matter how cold it is. Also, there’s plenty of less intense heat options too.
Because the battery life is the shortest with the 950 it’s going to cost the least when compared to the other two Therm-ic heaters. If you’re looking to save a little cash and still want Therm-ic quality (and don’t mind less battery life), this is a good option for you.
Our Rating: 4.7/5
The Thermacell Proflex shouldn’t be your top choice if you expect to face very cold conditions or you have an issue with cold feet. I don’t think the Proflex is low quality but it’s not on the same level as some of the other products listed here.
The Proflex is best for people that just want a little heat or for people that’ll be skiing in normal winter conditions. That’s where this heater excels.
- Quick charge time: The last thing you want is a battery that takes forever to charge – it might not charge in time for your day on the slopes. This heater charges up in about 4 hours.
- Made to be very comfortable: The insole that comes with the Proflex is very comfortable and is made for maximum flexibility. This is perfect for skiing because it improves mobility.
- Comes with a remote: Not every heater on this list comes with a remote and it’s definitely a plus to have one. It just makes changing the heat much easier.
- 3 heat settings: This isn’t a unique feature but is one that you’ll definitely want to have. You need multiple warmth settings to ensure you get the perfect amount of heat.
- 5 hours of warmth: This isn’t a lot when compared to some of the other products on this list. You’ll probably have to charge this battery up at lunch to make sure you get a full day’s worth of warmth.
- Long lasting battery: One positive for the battery, though, is it can be charged over 500 times before needing to be replaced. This will definitely save you money in the long run.
One thing that you’ll like about this product is the price. In fact, the Proflex is one of the cheapest heaters on this list. If you’re on a budget this insole and heater will work for you.
Therm-ic Classic Super Max
Our Rating: 4.8/5
The Therm-ic Classic Super Max is a lot like the last Therm-ic product that you saw on this list. The main similarity is in the battery life. On the lowest heat setting you get 18 hours of heat, on medium you get 7.5 hours of heat and on low you get 3 hours of heat.
There’s some heaters that give over 20 hours of warmth but 18 hours isn’t bad by any means. There probably won’t be many times you’re in the cold for more than 18 hours straight without a chance for a recharge.
- 158 degrees of heat: This is the same high that you’ve seen on all Therm-ic heaters. It’s enough to keep you toasty no matter how cold it is.
- Impulse control: This is another feature that you’ve seen on every Therm-ic product listed here. This creates a natural warmth by improving blood flow in your feet.
- Shock proof: When you’re skiing there’s a chance you take a tumble. You need a battery that can stand up to that and not break. The battery that comes with the Classic Super Max is strong enough to take on any fall.
- Long lasting battery: Not only is the battery very durable, it’s long lasting too. This battery can be recharged 1000 times before needing to be replaced. It’s going to be a long time before you’ll need to replace it.
- Comes with insole: All the Therm-ic heater you’ve seen so far didn’t come with an insole and you needed to buy one separately. The Classic Super max comes with one, however.
The best part is this product won’t cost too much either, even though it comes with the insole. So if you want Therm-ic quality without paying too much, this is the heater for you.
CoCocina 3.7 Volt Ski Boot Heater
Our Rating: 4.7/5
This might be the least known brand and product on this list. Do I think it’s on the same level as Hotronic and Therm-ic? Definitely not but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider this product.
This is especially true if you only expect to face normal winter conditions while you’re skiing. If you think the temperature is going to dip into the negatives then you might want to consider something else.
- Remote control: This is a feature that you’ve seen on some products and not others. I personally like when these heaters come with a remote because it makes life a lot easier.
- Carbon heating elements: Carbon fiber heats up very quickly and this means you won’t have to wait forever to get some warmth.
- Quick charge time: There’s a bunch of products that take all day to heat up but this one can get a full charge between 3 to 5 hours.
- Can be used in all boots: This product can be used for a bunch of activities and in all footwear. You can strap this heater to your ski boots, hiking boots, or regular shoes!
The price is really good too and this is one of the few products that cost under $100. As long as you manage your expectations with this heater, you should like what you get.
Therm-ic SmartPack Supermax Trim
Our Rating: 4.8/5
Another Therm-ic product? Yep! The Smartpack Supermax Trim is another heater from this awesome brand and is another product your’e going to love to ski with.
Every single Therm-ic heater you’ve seen so far comes with a feature called impulse control and this one is no different. Impulse control is just another way that you get warmth and it does so by increasing blood flow.
- 3 heat settings: Almost all the products on this list come multiple heat settings and this one does too. This is a must have feature in my mind and you definitely want the ability to control how much warmth you get.
- 18 hours of warmth: Most ski days last 8 hours and that includes a lunch break. Odds are you won’t even need to test the 18 hours of heat this product provides on the lowest setting.
- Global charger: It doesn’t where you’re traveling or skiing – this product can be used in all parts of the world because of the global charger.
- Durable: Another aspect that you’re going to love is this product will last. It doesn’t matter if you take a tumble or anything like that – this heater won’t break.
Therm-ic usually costs a little extra to purchase and that’s the case here. How much will the Supermax Trim cost to purchase? A little over $200. That’s not bad for all that you’re getting and I think you’ll come to the same conclusion if you decide on this heater.
Ski Boot Heater FAQ’S
1) How much do these heaters cost?
Answer: These products have a lot of technology in them and usually aren’t cheap. In terms of price, though, it depends on the company you’re buying from and the features you’re getting.
For example, A heater from one of the high end companies like Hotronic or Therm-ic will cost anywhere from $170 to over $300 dollars. You get a battery that lasts over 20 hours and heating of up to 178 degrees when you buy a product from them, though.
There’s many heaters that’ll cost under $150 too. These products aren’t on the same level as Hotronic or Therm-ic but they’re still usable.
The biggest difference comes in the battery life. Cheaper heaters will only give you 5 or 6 hours.
You really have to look at your own needs and budget to determine how much you should spend.
2) Can I wear these outside of skiing?
Answer: One thing that’s pretty awesome is you can wear these products when doing all kinds of activities.
Some activities that you can do while wearing these heaters is:
- Horseback riding
As long as you can find a way to install the battery to your footwear and can fit the insole in your boot/shoe, you can wear these products anywhere.
3) Where can I buy these products?
Answer: You won’t find these products at your local supermarket or anything like that. In most cases the only way you’ll be able to own one of these heaters is to purchase it online.
There’s plenty of online marketplaces that sell these products and I included a link to the cheapest price for every heater.
If any of these heaters interest you just click the “Check Price Here” buttons up top.
4) What are the top brands?
Answer: There’s plenty of brands that make high quality heaters and the top are:
- Hotronic: This is a brand that you definitely want to consider if you want a ski boot heater that’s going to perform at a high level. Their S4 and S3 are very popular and have very good reviews. Any products from them will keep your toes and feet very warm.
- Therm-ic: Therm-ic is another one of those brands that make very high quality products. Their equipment is always pricey and are some of the best you can purchase from them. If you have extra cash to spend I would definitely consider this product from Therm-ic.
- Thermacell: Thermacell isn’t quite on the same level as the previous two brands and their products don’t perform as high either. Their products are for people that are on budgets and don’t expect to face very freezing weather.
5) What are the pros and cons of these products?
1. Majority of ski boot heater comes with a long-lasting battery, which saves you money because it does not need constant replacement. Batteries are protected against damages, especially in overnight charging, hence protecting them from overcharging, which is one of the leading causes of battery damages. Batteries can even last to more than 21 hours.
2. Ski boot heater comes with three different heat settings. This means that you can quickly adjust your heat from level one, level two, and level three depending on the weather conditions and the temperatures you feel are comfortable to you. Likewise, you can drop the temperatures to the lowest level to prevent excessive heating.
3. The battery is charged easily and within a short period. They accumulate charge at a higher rate due to their ultra-charging cables. This allows you to spare time while charging whereby you can charge fast and continue with your journey or skiing.

10. Some ski boot heater has walk mode and tour mode support amongst themselves. This makes it easy for you to walk and sky with them. They are also comfortable enough and efficient in their services.
1. One of the main disadvantages of ski boot heaters is that some of them only get just slightly warmer than the body temperature. This undermines their purpose and usage in skiing.
2. Majority of ski boot heaters have confusing instructions which make it difficult for the users to use them or to maximum get the best services.
3. The battery pack is mostly white, and you can easily lose it out there, especially when in snowfields.
4. If in case you lose your remote, you will get difficulties when trying to control or adjust the heat. This means that your boot might be fixed at heat levels that are not so comfortable. Either too hot or lower than the body temperature which is not conducive.
5. Some ski boot heaters are expensive, and you cannot access them at a limited budget.
6. The other challenge is that you will continuously experience difficulties in control as the boot fails to receive remote control signals. This is profound when the battery is almost empty, or the remote battery is draining.
7. Some ski boot heaters come with a 3D insole dimension. Although this shape is assumed to be modern and more advanced, some foot shapes cannot fit making it unideal for most ski boot heater users.
8. There are some situations when can ski boot heater be too hot than the body temperature. This makes the person wearing it to feel uncomfortable.
9. Ski boot heaters out there in the stores are of low quality. This means they will wear and tear after a short period. Determining the best quality is a challenge as all ski boot heaters are marketed as the best making users to lose a significant amount of money.
10. Some of the ski boot heaters are wide which makes them not ideal for people with narrow feet.
11. There are situations when hikers have complained about ski boot heaters being too stiff, especially new hikers. This is caused by the poor quality of the material used for internal linings.
12. Other physical aspects that you can find buyers complaining about is ski boot heaters being too heavy for the people who are not used to them. Moreover, ski boot heaters have limited color variations forcing you to choose what is on display rather than what you would have preferred.
13. There are also issues too with the battery wherein some ski boot heaters; it takes much time to charge. The battery also fails to last longer as you would expect while at the same time being damaged easily.
6) What other ways can I keep my feet warm?
Answer: I really like the idea of a ski boot heater. They’re simple enough to install, reliable and give you a good amount of heat. But it’s not the onyl way to keep your toes and feet warm while you ski.
Other products like heated socks work too. In fact, top heater brands like Therm-ic and Hotronic make very high quality heated socks.
There’s plenty of ski boots for men and women that have built in heating systems. Many of these ski boots actually have Therm-ic built in already.
These boots come from high quality brands too like Rossignol and Salomon.
7) How warm do these products get?
Answer: Naturally when you purchase one of these heaters you’re going to want to know how warm it gets. The good news with these products is basically all have come multiple heat settings and the top setting is usually pretty high.
Some heaters give heat of over 170 degrees! On the lowest setting you can expect considerably less warmth than that.
8) How long does the battery last?
Answer: The battery power depends on the quality of the product you get and how high you’re running the heat. When you have these heaters on the high you can expect to get around 2 to 4 hours.
On the lowest setting you can expect to get anywhere from 8 hours all the way to 29 hours. Most people switch heat throughout the day between low, medium and high. If you get the right heater you should easily get warmth through out the day pretty easily.
9) Are these products easy to install?
Answer: Most people will be able to install these products pretty easily.
Steps For Proper Installation
But despite all of these benefits, there are many people who still find it too hard to install the product. That’s why there are some who treat this as the con of the product. Gladly, you can finally eliminate the fact that the product’s disadvantage is the way you need to set up the heater because of the following steps that will surely make it easier:
1. Remove the Liner
You have to remove the liner first on your skiing shoes. All you have to do is to place the sole of the shoes on your thigh area but with the toe pointing down on the ski. Hold the liner first with your hand, and hold the rear of the shell using your other hand before pushing the liner out. Pull the shell out using your hand as well in order for the liner to be removed.
2. Position the Heater
Next is to reach the liner down in order to hold the footbed with your hand. The footbed is just at the bottom of your liner. Afterward, place the ski boot heater right under the ball of your foot that’s located at the footbed. This is a required step to do with accuracy so then you can get the full healing benefits of the product. It is actually better than placing the heater near your toes.
3. Cut A Slit
After placing the heater under the ball of your foot, use any market where you can set to cut a slit.
Be sure to place a wide enough market in order for the heater to be placed easily. Use any kind of cutter of knife that’s sharp enough in order to create the slit on the footbed of your ski shoes. Just one inch or less of a slit would be enough and provides you a way to customize your shoes.
4. Place it On The Cut
Next is to get the end of the heater – the area where the battery pack plug is located – then place it right to the cut that you created on the previous step. This will cause you to remove the adhesive at the back of the heater so then you can attach it to the footbed along with the heater’s sitting flush. Next is to use a wire and lay it from the heater right below the footbed. Pull and cover the area with any kind of effective tape or adhesive.
5. Removing and Re-Attaching the Protective Layer
Remove the layer that provides protection from the cover located at the skiing shoes’ heel. Start folding the cover slowly and carefully then stick it towards the middle of the footbed. You have to do this from the center towards the outer parts while pressing down and sticking down all of the covers as you do it. If there are any excess covers, you can remove it with a scissor instead.
6. Placing the Wire
Next is to take the wire of the heater and then place it through the slit that’s located at the liner’s back end area. Place it further down the wire, while positioning the footbed properly in order to avoid any mistakes when the wire is getting inserted into the liner. Finally, secure the wire by using a tape or any adhesive in order to attach the heater and slide it back all the way from the inside area towards the liner at the toe area. Curl your toes up and place the liner inside the boots. In this way, your ski boot heater is now fully installed and operational.
7. Prepare For Usage
Take note that once the heater is finally installed, it is best to do a charge on your heater so then it can be well-prepared for your skiing. So be sure to do this right before you start skiing. So basically, the procedures that are explained above should always be done hours before the actual skiing session.
