The ski lift is the water cooler of the ski slopes with idle chit chat and conversations.

  • Where are you from?
  • What do you do for a living?
  • Do you like your skis (snowboard)?

And surely, the subject of warmth will be broached. Are you staying warm?

The warmth of you and your liftmates' hands, feet and head enters into the small talk. The enjoyment of your day on the slopes is partly measured by your warmth especially your feet. Warmer feet result in a better day on the slopes.

Teko Socks, a company based in Boudler, Co., produces comfortable and warm ski and boarding socks. Teko stresses a commitment to environmental concerns by adopting numerous "green" business practices.

Cutting down the company's carbon footprint is a driving theme behind the Teko's environmental commitment. This commitment is visible in Teko's manufacturing to their employees travel for business. The company continues with this commitment to "green" practices by utilizing organic Merino wool and recycled polyester in their products.

Nothing is more inconvenient and irritating than a ski sock losing its elasticity and sliding down your ankle. Unbuckling your boots and pulling your socks up is the last thing you want to do. The Teko Ski Socks stayed put due to a well-constructed ankle band.

Teko categorizes their socks into 3 categories based on weight – ultralight, light, and medium. Your preference and time of the year will dictate which Teko socks are most appropriate. The medium weight ski socks are the warmest and best for bitter cold days.

The ultralight ski sock delivers in early season skiing and during the warmer spring months. The lightweight sock provides versatility. Thinner than the medium weight, it too will keep your tootsies toasty.

Teko LogoTeko Ski Socks are a great choice for swooshing or riding, and the company is committed to lessening their impact on the environment with responsible business practices. Teko offers their ski socks in a variety of colors for feet small and large. Teko Ski Socks have an MSRP ranging from $16.95 to $20.95.
