1. Avoid heel-toe walking while you’re in your boots. Try walking flat-footed in your ski boots with the knees slightly bent. By doing this you automatically adjust for the forward position that your knee joint is placed in when the ankle is flexed forward. This might require more muscle activity in your thighs but will help to prevent strain on the knee joint.

2. Remove the boots and do most of your walking in a pair of normal shoes/snow boots. This will allow the ankle to go through its normal range of motion and will prevent straining the knee joint.
