I was thinking of hiring a staff to carry around one of those NFL sideline heaters for me; it might be easier.
After my Raptors I'm in Fischer RC4 The Curv now. Still a very high performance boot, maybe not quite the laser reaction of a Raptor, but warmer and more roomy in the toe box, both vertically and horizontally. I use heater in them but can tell they're warmer than my Raptors were with the same heaters.

I didn't have many cold days in the Raptors last year, day 1 on them wasn't until March. This winter will be the test.

Very nice.
Please tell Todd to bring back the Snap-dry boot dryer.

Any insider information on whether they're planning an update to the insole heater type batteries that would enable bluetooth control?

Do the bluetooth socks talk to me, like Siri? Will they announce warnings up ahead, like the maps app on my phone? Can they make a phone call? Maybe these manufacturers should get more creative!

never thought I'd need heat in my boots, but there is some thing real about getting older and feeling the cold...

We said that about heated boot bags.
loving my heated bag (Kulkea). Been a life saver, especially during covid when booting up at the car has become part of the normal routine. It is a great feeling slipping you feet into nicely warmed boots, in a cold parking lot...

I can’t imagine what it was like before I had boot heaters.(and I don’t want to) Hottonics are super sturdy and last me the whole day. Happy to see them as a sponsor of SkiTalk.com. :golfclap:

Where the crummy snow is.

And….for putting on boots that have lace-up liners, the heated bag warms the boot shells so they’re a bit more pliable. Lifesaver.

I wouldn’t be able to alpine ski in cold temperatures without boot heaters. Toes get too cold without them.
