Deviant They're essentially just what Triple8 posted, just a larger version of it. I cant find a working link to those but you could probably do a DIY with a bunch of silica packets from ebay.

Personally I just use a "Hy'n Dry boot dryer" I got from Harbor Freight for like 40 bucks and it works great. No sound as it's done with thermal convection. Even spring-wet boots are dry the next morning if I put them on it after I get home.

I bought a pair of Salomon F22 boots a long time ago, and they came with a couple boot drying bags. They're just black woven poly bags in a long cylindrical shape with a loop handle on one end, and contain larger desiccant balls (I'm assuming ceramic). Things work like a charm. Per instructions, after your each use, you just throw them directly in the microwave for a few min. to dry them out for the next use. Can't seem to find a pic of them anywhere online though.

marauder I use this little gadget - it's portable, it has a heater, ventilator and UV LED inside - completely dries my boots and kills all the odor and bacteria:

Psi-Man It's not that portable, but I remember seeing a pretty good DIY solution. It's a wood box with a couple computer fans with PVC pipes sticking up - as many as you need. You drill a couple of holes in the PVC for air flow. The heat source is a 60 watt bulb (halogen preferred). It's essentially a combination of some of the homemade solutions offered so far.

Come to think of it, something like this attached to the piping Wrathfuldeity put together would be an ideal stationary solution.

dcrides I use the Seirus Boot Toaster. Seirus Innovation - Ski and Snowboard Essentials, including gloves, hats, clavas, liners, quicks, face masks, and more!
They travel well and dry your boots over night with low heat, so you don't have to worry about overcooking your liners/footbeds.

that_guy I just put the liners over the heater in the hotel, or if I'm in a pinch, the floor vent in the car. One other cheap option is to use newspaper to absorb the moisture.

With my current pair of boots, there's a lot of moisture trapped between the footbeds and the liner, so I take out the footbeds and dry them out. My liners get really damp.

Its because you are in Colorado, where we have no moisture. As long as your boots can breathe overnight, you just don't need a dryer like people in most of the rest of the snowboarding world. The midwest is humid, the coasts are humid. When my gear gets wet and I'm gonna ride the next day I will hang it in the basement and run an oscillating fan overnight - its cold down there too - always works. I usually put my wet boots and gloves where they will get hit by moving air.
