The Ski Socks Program started in 2012 based on a need identified by a snowboard Instructor. Many of the children in school based snowsports programs arrive at the Cannon Mountain in low-rise cotton socks. Cotton sock do not keep a child warm and tend to wrinkle; which leads to an uncomfortable day on the slopes. The Secret Sock Society provides ski/snowboard socks to students in the school-based ski program who need them. We have found that our recipients are very responsible and motivated by comfort; returning each week with their new socks on! Learning a snow sport is challenging enough with comfortable feet; this program provides comfort for a child so that they're able to focus on learning versus discomfort. The Ski Sock Program is funded by the sale of our Secret Sock Society logo pins. *Pins cost $10 and are available during ski season from a SSS Board Member or at the Cannonball Pub at Cannon Mountain.
