The 20 Best Ski Pants Are On-the-Slopes Essentials

Peak winter sports time is upon us—from Whistler to the Alps, the temperatures are just right and the slopes are just snowy enough to warrant whipping out your seasonal armor: ski pants.

Ski pants are a necessity to keep your legs warm, dry, and flexible on the slopes (or, if you’re more of an aprés-skier like myself, they’re a necessity to camouflage yourself within the masses of actual skiers while you stay warm and curl up with a hot toddy and a good read). The ski pant is sacred to the sport its named after: a good ski pant needs to allow your legs to move freely, while keeping them protected. They’re a rare sort of garment which teeters between fashionable and functional, and trust me when I say that you do not want to be the person with the ugliest ski pants on the Black Diamond run.

You don’t have to be, though! Ski pants are an investment that last up to years, depending on how frequent (and aggressive) a skier you are. Update your winter rotation with the latest, most stylish ski pants, or, start from scratch and shop the best ski pants for men right here.
