How about warmth?
Keep your core temperature up, ski like you mean it, and wear wool socks
(not too thick though). This works down to about 35 below from my
experience. No experience with Intuition liners myself, but there's no
reason why they wouldn't be plenty warm if you follow the above advice.
Yup, and as I said, don't buckle your boots
so tight your eyes bulge out.
I don't do that. I don't have the time to ski much anymore, as I live in
the midwest and the busiest season of my business now is from November
to March. I've been skiing for about 35 years (I'm 58), and at this
point I'm mostly a crusier. I've been through a lot of boots..Nordicas,
Hansons, Langes (the mid-80's hot-foam versions), a dreadful pair of
something the-name-of-which escapes me, and these Tecnicas, and this is
the first time I have had any issues of this sort. I don't recall
exactly when I got them, but it had to be 2003 or so. I spent a lot of
time and money getting these fit correctly, I use Thorlo thin socks
(which is what they were fit for) because wool irritates my skin, and
they are not buckled tight at all. I pretty much know what I'm doing out
there, which is why I am concerned. It's also true that frostbite in
extremities can be a warning about other issues, so I am keeping a close
watch on this.
Generally ski boots, regardless of liner type, are
reasonably warm. If you are not doing what Walt
says about keeping your core temperature up and
other things there could be real circulation problems.
All other things being equal, I have friends who
swear by electric heaters for boots.
I've got ten years on you, I haven't degraded to
cruiser yet and my feet don't get cold. My hands do
sometimes, but the cure is to get them warmed up
wherever I can put the gloves back on and go some
more. IOW, my hands will stay warm once they have
been warmed up from a cold condition. In REALLY
cold weather I will use the coal based handwarmers.
Fer chissakes, don't be uncomfortable.-
So how are those diapers? Do they pinch? Did they do the job and
provide you with dryness when you peed your pants driving through
Seattle, terrified that I might find you?
Enquiring minds want to know, you blowhard coward.
