    Booting up at the car is really going to suck at areas with big parking lots and no shuttle. I have a ton of $$$ into my boots and dread the thought of waking through mud or frozen rock covered parking lot, but at least we will be skiing.
    I guess it's time to start looking for a sole protectors, any recommendation on which ones to get?

    I've never bought these before, so I have no idea which ones are actually good. But, these are somewhat prevalent out west at places like Whistler where people boot up in a parking garage and walk through the village to the gondi.

    Ski season is always too short

    I don't use those exact ones (I use these - https://www.rei.com/product/435109/seirus-cat-tracks), but the general concept is the same. I've been using them for quite a few years now as I have always either booted up in the parking lot or at my condo if I took the shuttle bus. Not only do they protect the soles of your boots, but it is also much easier to walk in them. They improve traction too, but I'd still recommend being careful and trying to avoid any really slick spots.

    On one of the pictures there is mondo sizing.

    Never used them but probably should because the heal and toe material get pretty worn.

    I wonder how well they fit is a pocket? Which begs another question! Will we be seeing more back packs since nothing can be left in the lodge? Will there be more trash under the chair lifts because people will be eating and drinking on the fly?

    What other residual effects or actions will arise?

    I've used Cat tracks for more than a decade. if you are in between sizes get a smaller size and stretch it.

    they work great and really aren't that much of a hassle to take off/put on.
