The latest ski outerwear to keep you cozy

When it comes to choosing ski outerwear for the snow season, there are plenty of options out there. Every season brings new trends and technological improvements that can impact the quality of your ski experience. So whether you’re starting from scratch with a whole new set of skiing outerwear, or you just need to pick up a select item or two, make the right decision so you can get the most out of your gear. Let’s take a look at the latest.


There are a lot of glove styles, and it’s worth asking yourself which style suits you the best. You’ve got classic black gloves and a colorway gloves. There are gauntlet styles and under-the-cuff styles. You’ll also have to decide between a waterproof insert and waterproofing treatment. It also depends on whether you’re looking for warmer weather or colder weather gloves. In recent years, apparel technology advancements have meant that gloves can be warmer and more waterproof with less bulk, meaning you don’t have to skip out on comfort to sport a glove that does the job right.


Ski boots have also come a long way in recent years. The latest boot trend is designing them to be better for walking without compromising the skiing performance. The quality of ski performance is determined by the fore-aft integrity, and ease of hiking when released from the skis is determined by the frictionless range of motion of the boot in question. Be sure to compare these two factors when shopping for boots this year.


You’ll notice some bright splashes of colour and patterns on jackets that will be cut longer in the free-ride style. You’ll also see sleek, tailored, toned-down looks out there on the slopes. Within those styles, expect to see a lot of innovation in the detailing, from stretching fabrics to new styles of breathable vent.


The conditions in the region you plan to ski in should have a big impact on what ski pants you choose. You want to pick pants that are warm enough to keep you comfy, but not so warm that you'll be sweating constantly on the hill. Likewise, you need a solid level of waterproofing, and the warmer the climate, the more wet you'll end up getting. In all of this you also need to ensure a good level of breathability because skiing is, after all, a high-energy activity.
