To enter click here and answer one easy question. Competition closes at noon on Friday, 15 March. The winner will be drawn at random shortly after that date, and notified by email. No cash alternative is available.

So, why are we specifically giving away a pack of three socks? Because that’s the minimum number you should take on a week’s holidays, says FALKE.

“Skiing, however enjoyable, is a form of exercise and raising your heart rate and body heat means you are more likely to sweat — and need performance socks,” says Adam Renshaw from FALKE. “You wear fresh clean socks every day to go to work, so it would follow that you should ideally wear a fresh pair of ski socks every day. At the very least, FALKE would emphasise taking a minimum of three pairs of socks away for a week’s skiing (you can always wash them while away).”

Another way to think of socks, says Adam, is as baselayers for your feet: “To work properly and effectively every day they need to be clean, which will also reduce the chances of pulling your feet out your ski boots at the end of the day and being greeted with a terrible odour!”

FALKE also makes a fantastic range of ski-specific baselayers and underwear with its trademark moisture-wicking and thermal-management capabilities, along with supreme comfort.
