"I want a black ski jacket"

Needed mostly for Alyeska Ski Resort just south of Anchorage and Hilltop, but also for some upcoming east coast skiing (Killington, Stowe, Sugarbush) and a pending trip to Aspen!

Black Ski Jacket Recommendations

Look no further, I found your next ski jacket. It's mostly brown with black accents though :)

Or, if you aren't into teddy bears, Backcountry.com and Amazon.com have a bunch of nice women's ski and snowboard jackets from popular makers like Spyder, Helly Hansen, The North Face, Descente, Marmot, Marker, Oakley, Zero Xposur, Obermeyer, Tresspass, Columbia, Mountain Hardwear, Patagonia and many others.

Some tips when buying a ski jacket:
  • Get a ski jacket that can adapt to various weather conditions: many have zippered vents to allow you to cool off when the sun is beaming and you are shredding, but also have hoods and partial facemasks for when the wind is whipping and you are just trying to make it from the summit down to the lodge. As well, many shells allow for zipping in fleece liners for those uber-cold ski days.

  • Get a jacket that's made for skiing: ski-appropriate jackets will have features like powder skirts to keep snow from getting up your jacket in a tumble; convenient places to display you ski pass; exterior pockets for trail maps; and interior pockets for your mid-mountain granola bar snack and hand warmers.

  • Get a ski jacket that you look good in: if you feel good, you ski good and look better in a fall :)

  • Thin, light layers are better than one bulky one: layers insulate better, allow you to customize your clothing to the day's weather conditions, and better trap warm layers of air to help with the insultating. Oh yeah, those air layers are FREE! Make sure the layer closest to your skin is not cotton and is something that will breath and wick away moisture (ewww).
comment I got the Helly Hansen Alima jacket before the season. Love it. Waterproof with pit zip venting and looks good, IMHO. - meggers 6 years, 11 months ago

"I want a warm winter jacket for my 10-year old daughter" +
details: She has one that she's outgrown (plus it's quite grubby from whatever it is that 5th graders do to make clothes grubby). She likes the color blue, hates pink and is open to all other colors. She also likes things to be stylish in an understated way -- no bling for her. I want something that will be warm and hides dirt well. Any suggestions? Thanks!
