Skiwear: Looking as Cool as Ice

Snow sports enthusiasts have never had it better. Not only can you technically look good heading down the slope these days, but you can also look stylish while doing it.

More and more companies such as Burton, Spyder, and Quiksilver are hiring young, hip designers to spice up their collections, as well as adding technology that will keep you dryer and warmer at the same time.

Burton Cargo Pant

Burton are essentially a snowboard make, but with cutting edge design like this, more and more skiers are taking to this type of clothing to make them look ultra-cool.
They come in a variety of lengths and fits to ensure you’re comfortable as well as looking stylish.
Fully taped seems and polyester mesh keep you protected from the elements, and with lots of pocket space you’ll be hard pressed to find a better cargo pant.




Spyder Scorpion Pant

A popular brand with skiers, Spyder are known for their technical excellence and modern cut.
We’ll all agree that a normal pair of suspender styled ski pants can make you look like a bad impression of ‘Eddie the Eagle’, so fortunately Spyder have come to the rescue.
With ultra-slim constructed, Thinsulate lined, water-proof pants they’ll soon have you adding the ‘rock and roll’ to skiing and apr├Ęs-ski.



Quicksilver Antarctica

Quiksilver’s Antarctica range has been really influenced by Polar expeditions.

Quiksilver have constructed the Antarctica jacket using their own Quiktech 5000 fabric which has had its critical seams taped, for first class waterproof performance and breathability, and with a colour scheme this cool, anyone can look as cool as ice.



Salomon Rocket Twin CP Glove

With ClimaPRO and Thermolite technology encased within these gloves, you can be sure they’ll fit your needs like a glove. Excuse the pun.
As well as being suitable for any weather conditions the slopes will throw at you, Saloman have designed them to fit in with the trendy styling seen on the sloped masses.




Becoming as good as Shaun White takes years of practice and an Olympic Gold Medal, but looking as good as him only takes a few minutes of online shopping, and with the choices above you’ll be staying warm, and looking chic at the same time.
