Grabber Toe Warmers just got me (and my toes!) through a deep arctic front.
I was teaching an avalanche course for the American Avalanche Institute—a Pro 1 course for ski patrollers at A-Basin and Breckenridge.
A storm had recently left the region. This left room for an arctic air mass to descend onto Colorado, dropping the temps to -17˚F with a -46˚F wind-chill.
Being ski patrollers, we were outside all day, digging holes to assess the snowpack’s structure and stability.
I don’t have very good foot circulation to begin with. So, with -47˚F, I had a major problem.
How was I going to keep my toes from freezing while teaching the course?
Thank Grabber for Toe Warmers!
Grabber’s little packets of chemical heat are amazing.
Every morning, I took a pair of toe warmers out of theirpackage and set them gently on my dashboard while I was driving up to the ski area. Before I put my boots on, I peeled the paper backing off and stuck them over my ski socks. I placed them on top of my toes, right over my socks. Then I slipped my worried little feet into my ski boots.
The toe warmers generated enough heat to get me through the arctic days.
To say that my toes were warm would be an overstatement, but they did not freeze!
My toes and I made it through the coldest week of the year.
I place the Toe Warmers on top of my toes so I don’t have a weird-layer under my toes.
Stick the adhesive back diagonally across the top of your toes. Line up the rounded edge with the front of your toes, and the back corner over the middle part of your foot. It works like a charm!
