This past winter, you may have seen the phrase “Après-ski” come across your screen more times than you’d ever imagine you’d see. There is no doubt this was a big ski season, with seemingly every mountain becoming coated in fresh snow. But what’s the fun in skiing when there’s no style? Here’s how to go about that.
The phrase “Après-ski”, which feels far too fancy for my lexicon, was a prominent aspect of ski season this year. Defined as the social activities that concur after a day’s skiing, like lounging at the ski lodge for example, time for “Après-ski” squeezed in to just about everyone’s schedule. But before we can get too caught up in the social events, one of the most important details of any mountain getaway is exactly how you’ll bundle up and with what.
Sure, some people may scoff at the idea of delicately selecting pieces tailored exactly to your ski itinerary, but in the end you do want to be comfortable and may as well be chic while you’re at it, right? Whether your plans take you to Mammoth Mountain, Aspen, Park City, or somewhere high in the Swiss Alps, here is every essential snow-intensive item you’ll be needing to add to your packing list. But don’t worry, these pieces will roll over trip upon trip without going out of style. Reliability and sturdy equipment is essential for any mountain outing, so why not translate that to the clothes you’ll be wearing? Makes enough sense to me. Check the list below to stock up for the snow that is left and what will be rapidly falling next season.
