"I know that if my feet aren't happy, nothing else is..."

Winter, and especially ski boots, can take a real toll on your feet. At season's end, my feet are cold, cramped and generally beat up. I know that if my feet aren't happy, nothing else is... As a professional skier my feet take a lot of beatings, and over the years I have come up with my own way to keep my feet happy and healthy. Below are my three steps to maintaining what I call 'happy feet' after enduring even the most brutal conditions throughout the season.

Step One:

Get the right gear! For me, of course, FITS socks are a no brainer. Their scientifically engineered perfect fit prevents any bunching or wrinkling, and their incredible wool fabric always keep my feet warm and dry! This season, I have been loving the Pro Ski sock because it has the perfect amount of cushioning to keep my feet nice and happy in my ski boots.

Step Two:

Take time each day to care for your feet! Feet are like any part of our body, though some may say they carry the most burden, and they need some proper maintenance. To keep my feet feeling comfy and rejuvenated all winter long I just need a couple simple tools and about 5 minutes a day.

Step Three:

Massage. First, keep a bouncy ball and a golf ball handy. The bouncy ball I keep with me when I travel, and the golf ball lives in the freezer (or snow!). Every day, use the bouncy ball to roll out and stretch your feet. I like to apply an even amount of pressure while lightly standing on the ball and roll from my heel up to my toes, holding the ball under my toes for an extra stretch! If your feet are particularly beat up, feeling cramped or you even have some pulled muscles, pull the golf ball out of the freezer and use it as a gentle icing and massaging tool. Be careful not to apply too much pressure that you cause yourself more pain, but knead just the right amount for you.

Happy feet are the key to good days in the mountains, so take care of your feet so they can carry you wherever you want to go!
