Fun Ski Fashion

Look good and feel good in your ski gear!
by Stefanie Hindmarch, guest blogger

It's that time of year you've been waiting for: the mountains are covered in snow,the chairlifts are open, and now you have to get your gear ready. Remember, with ski and snowboard gear, you don't need to match everything, or worry about clashing prints. The brighter and weirder, the better!

Safety first! (Helmet by Smith Optics)
Safety is the most important thing, so make sure you wear a helmet when you're on the slopes. Don't worry, you don't need to sacrifice looking good to be safe. Helmets are available in all kinds of colors and patterns, and you can always decorate your helmet with stickers.

As you're going to be outside all day, you want to make sure you're comfortable. It is easy to get way too cold or way too hot when skiing or snowboarding, so make sure you bring the right gear. Check the temperatures for each day of your trip online before you go.
Stay warm and dry

For really cold days, a face mask may be necessary if you want to ski all day. Classic black ones are almost always available in ski shops, but there are some more fun options. Make sure you also have good gloves and good socks, because fingers and toes are usually the first parts to get cold.

Love the mountain print! (By Burton)
Jackets and snowpants also come in so many cool designs. Professional snowboarders and skiers often collaborate with top brands to make gear that really stands out on the mountain. If you want to go past the classic designs, check out these cool jackets

Cool beanie from Burton
Once you're done with the slopes for the day, it's time for après-ski. A cool fleece or long underwear shirt can keep you warm on the mountain and easily transition to the après-ski atmosphere. Throw on a funky beanie and sunglasses, and you're ready to party the afternoon away with your new mountain buddies.
