Womens Ski Clothing



Most women will agree that the most important thing about choosing womens ski apparel is the fit. Ill fitting womens ski clothing can be uncomfortable and cause skiers to be more focused on their womens ski clothing than on the terrain or the turns they are making. 

 

At skis.com we do our best to help women select the best womens ski apparel for their body type. We allow our customers to sort ski jackets and ski pants by the cut. Options include slim, regular, and full cut which give women the option of selecting slim fit for a more tailored look or full fit for a boxier cut and a roomier fit. Ski apparel for women has come a lon way over the years and now the fits correlate more closely with womens fashion.

 

In addition to being able to select the cut you want for your womens ski apparel you can also select length. Ski jacket length sorts jacket by short, medium, or long lengths. Short ski jackets are designed to hit around the hip bone. While long ski jackets are designed to cover your backside. Many taller women or women with longer torso may find a short ski jacket to be too short, possibly causing gapping between the jacket and pants when bent in a proper skiing position. On the flip side many petite women may find long jackets to be too long, the excess fabric could bunch into the hip area and restrict movement.

 

Skis.com carries a wide selection of ski pants available in short, medium or regular, and long lengths. Many of our womens ski clothing vendors like Nils and The North Face offer long and short versions of their great fitting pants. Check the manufacturer’s specific size charts for exact measurements but many women taller than 5’8 can benefit from long length pants.

 

In addition to investing in great fitting outerwear it is important to complete your assortment of ski apparel for women with layering pieces, long underwear, ski socks and gloves or mittens.

 

Layering pieces are key womens ski clothing pieces as they can provide additional warmth on colder days. They are great for wearing in the lodge where you ski jacket might be too warm, but long underwear tops might not be warm enough. Layering pieces include sweaters, hoodies, vests, fleeces, and even lightly filled down jackets. Owning a few different styles of layer pieces is key to having a complete collection of womens ski clothing. A complete collection of womens ski apparel is ideal for long trips or climates where weather conditions can vary drastically.

 

Base layers include long underwear and ski socks and are equally important as outwear and layers when it comes to womens ski clothing. Investing in high quality long underwear and ski socks can make a huge difference in your overall comfort on the slopes. For women who get cold easily, mid weight long underwear made from soft merino wool fibers is the best addition to your womens ski clothing.

 

Often overlooked pieces of womens ski apparel are socks and gloves or mittens. When it comes to ski socks a light or medium cushion socks are best. Socks that are too thick and bulky won’t help insulate any better and in most cases your feet end up being colder. Ski socks with light to medium thickness will leave a small amount of air space inside your boots which your body will heat up. It may sound crazy but that air space will keep your feet much warmer than sock fuzz will. High quality gloves or mittens will keep your hand warm too. Typically the higher quality gloves provide you with warm insulation which isn’t bulky.
