ski vs. snowboard socks

hey, this is probably a stooped question but is there any big difference between ski and snowboard socks? i just got some underarmour snowsports socks (im assuming this means ski) and i was wondering if there would be any real big difference between them and real snowboard socks. thanks!

p.s. happy new years!

Ski socks are insulated more in some places and less in others while snowboard socks are generally consistent in insulation.

My Smartwool phd socks are the ski ones. The only difference from the snowboard ones is that the ski ones have less padding on the calf. And the last thing my giant calfs need is more padding. I love those socks.

I got a pair of the UA snowsport socks for Christmas. I love them - beat my Smartwool and Burton socks to death.

i have the smartwool ski socks as well. they actually have more padding on the shin rather than less on the calf if you know what i mean.
