Women's Guide for Choosing Best Outerwear for Snowboarding & Skiing


  • If you are a beginner snowboarder be sure to have waterproof clothing for your pants and jacket, we aren’t going to sugar-coat it; your butt will be on the snow when you’re learning and you want to get gear that will keep you dry. Believe us, it will be a better experience.
  • If you are a year-round snow athlete, it can pay off to get better gear but know what kind of waterproofing and technical fabric you are getting for your money. Some brands may be hiking up the price because of their name but may not be able to deliver with the performance you’re looking for.
