Ankle Blisters

I took my 1st riding lesson last year at Crested Butte. I skied a couple of days first. The morning after my lesson I woke up with large blisters on the inside of both ankles. I ended up wrapping them and going back to my skis. Anyone had this problem or any remedies?

Sounds like heel-slide. Most likely the boots were not fit properly, or likely were rentals. If you have your own boots and they are heat-molded liners, you should not have this problem. If you do, try some smart-wool socks to remedy it.

Custom insoles might help. too.
