So I searchbarred and there hasn't been a thread about this in years. What is your opinion of shaving your legs from like the knee down during the winter? Is there a noticeable improvement while skiing? I have pretty long leg hairs and at the end of the day my lower legs start getting extremely uncomfortable from leg hairs getting caught in the liner and it ends up shortening many of my ski days. I'm aware of how ridiculous it would look but unless i'm going running I pretty much always have long pants on in the winter so it wouldn't be too noticeable. Opinions?
Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.
not a bad idea but it might itch like fuck once the hairs start to grow back. youd probably have to go chick status and do it every couple days. i lose a shit ton of leg hair on my shins every season from ski boots, but its never uncomfortable enough to shorten my day
I have hairy legs as well, I just let my liners rip out the hair where it rubs and after a little it doesn't hurt anymore. I feel like shaving your legs would be extremely uncomfortable when you started to let the hair grow back out again
Its actually really helpful. But dont shave it with a razor. That would hurt super bad when it grows back in. What i do is just TRIM them with the back of an electric razor to do it. It works really good.
used to do this during football season so the trainers didnt have to use pre-wrap every time i got my ankles taped. It took a few shaving sessions each year until i stopped getting razor burn and ingrown hairs. kinda sucks.
if you are that worried about getting your hair pulled by the boots, just get a pair of cheap tights from Eastbay($20) and wear those under your socks. that way you wont have to look like a fairy off the hill, and can save yourself the pain on the hill.

This. I usually just let my ski boots rip the hair out on there own.Never was bad enough to shorten a day. I thought about shaving the spots this year just so I dont have to deal with any of it.

Aha, your my hero. And yeah, if anything, leg hair should improve your skiing. They detect small changes in motion and transmit that into your skin, improving balance. Very slight difference but hey, Chad Sayers is a solid skier, so pause this video at 00:09 and look how much leg hair he has.... Obviously why he's so good.

i trim my leg hairs cause it sucks when you ride/hike everyday and the hairs rip apart your legs and spray everyone with blood and blisters.
if you don't do this your just not manly enough to have shag carpet fur
like somewhere above, use a electric shaver trimmer and buzz the hairs off.
use plenty of lube.
I do that too. Must be why girls chase me with flavored condoms, sandwiches, and lube daily. -papa_lanks
There are two types of people: those that do stuff, and those that watch them do it.
and i thought i was the only one with this problem. today my leg hairs hurt bad enough to shorten my day, and the walk back to the car was a bitchhhh. I'm thinking of just finding some different socks
"if your friends jumped off a cliff would you?" me: "hell ya if if i had skis and some snow"
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings,
dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair. It doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life doesnt seem like it could get any worse, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
its a known fact that most motocrossers especially those who wear knee braces shave their legs due to chafing. If your having similar issues just shave them, I just wouldn't go around bragging about it to your GF or anything.
