These cute ski outfits and accessories will have you looking warm and stylish on the mountain.
One of the best parts about living in Colorado is that we’re close to the mountains and instead of getting to ski once every few years, we get to go skiing a few times every year.
Just a few weekends ago we hopped over to Keystone for a weekend to ski, and in March, I have a fun ski weekend planned with my girlfriends!
If you have a trip booked to go skiing this year, or you’re heading to the mountains in winter, you’re going to love these super cute, stylish and warm outfits and pieces from Free People’s ski collection. It wasn’t until this year that I realized they even carried ski gear! But, in true FP style, their pieces put a spin on what it means to look stylish on the mountain.
They have everything from onesies to pants and jackets, plus great under layers too which are essential for keeping you toasty warm while sitting on the chairlift.
What You Need for a Ski Trip
When it comes to a ski (or snowboard) trip, you’ll need more than just an outer layer, and if it’s your first time, consider this your ultimate checklist so you have everything you need and can avoid buying things at the last minute at the more expensive resort or mountain stores.
Base Layer—long sleeve shirt and pants that are form fitting, like leggings and a fitted top. How cute is this one?!
Fleece—If you’re skiing later in the season and it’s not that cold, this might be too much, but I always have mine on—a more fitted fleece pullover is perfect for this thicker, warmer layer. I have this one and it is perfect!
Socks—I recommend buying actual ski socks that are thin enough for your boots and designed to keep you warm. Most ski and snowboard boots will keep your feet warm.
Ski/Snowboard Pants or Bib—You’ll definitely want something that’s waterproof, especially if you’re snowboarding as you’ll be sitting down in the snow often.
Jacket—a warm jacket is essential. Mine has a spot for my lift pass, plenty of pockets and an inner elastic snap closure to keep out snow. You can also do a one piece set instead of pants and a jacket
Gaiter—This serves as a scarf to keep your neck and lower face warm and is essential. I love this neutral fleece one.
Helmet—A good ski or snowboard helmet only keeps your head protected, but also adds a lot of warmth!
Goggles—Glasses can work, but personally I find goggles to be a lot more reliable and they keep the cold air from drying out your eyes. They also make it much easier to actually see the snow and protect your eyes from getting burned.
Sunscreen & Chapstick with SPF—Always remember to put sunscreen on your face before you hit the slopes! You’re closer to the sun and the light reflects off the snow, making it really easy to get burned. Don’t forget the chapstick with SPF either, trust me on that one! This is my go-to sunscreen and chapstick.
Gloves or Mittens—Last, but not least, you’ll need warm and waterproof gloves or mittens to keep your hands warm. This pair is similar to what I have and they are so warm!
