Like a lot of other people, I prefer my Smart Wool socks. I have a couple pairs of Burton socks as well but I will go to the Smart Wool socks before the Burtons. I would not recommend wearing 2 pairs of socks.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

Smartwool for the record.

But, I do kind of like my thin bamboo Bonfire socks, but mostly because they are purple striped.

I have multiple pairs of Burton socks. Some are good some are bad. I have some pair I just got of some really high-tech synthetic fabic and all i can say is it has nothing on good ol' wool.

another +1 for smartwool. Switched over from the low end Burton socks this year, and won't be looking back. Thinner for a more precise fit, yet same warmth and superior wicking compared to the burtons.
