If you live for the slopes, then you know a few things to be true. One is that winter is the best season of the year, no ifs, ands, and buts. The other is that the gear that you wear can make or break your skiing (or snowboarding) experience.
This means that investing in the right ski pants is key. You’re in the right place. Altitude Sports carries a variety of ski pants for women and men.

What to look for in a good pair of women’s ski pants

First thing’s first: weather on the slopes can be unpredictable. Even if it’s a “bluebird day”, you should always expect less favourable weather systems to blow over at any time. This is one of the reasons why you should always look for ski pants that are waterproof (or at least water resistant). After all, snow is, itself, water.
Whether you’re going down the black diamond mountain or ski touring for the day, you’re also going to want to look for insulated ski pants. It can get cold up there at high altitudes. If a cold wind comes in, your future self will ...thank you for investing in insulated pants.
If you want something even warmer, look for ski pants that allow space for layering. You can always put some long johns or fleece pants underneath your ski pants for extra warmth.
Some other things that are “nice to have” in ski pants but aren’t a necessity include pockets, reinforced ankles, and ventilation.

Which brands make the best ski pants?

With skiing ranking as one of the most popular winter sports in North America, it’s not surprising that many different brands offer ski pants options to their customers. As long as you’re looking for the qualities that we listed above, you can’t go wrong with any pair of ski pants that you buy. A lot of it comes down to brand loyalty.
That being said, some of the most trusted names in ski pants include Columbia, the North Face, Burton, and Salomon. Helly Hansen, Mammut, and of course Kari Traa also make very reliable ski pants that will keep you stylish and comfortable on the slopes.
