* Gift your mountain girl with this shred-ready gear
* Brands that we love including Carhartt, 686, and Sorel
* Technical apparel for stylish skiers and snowboarders
For the women who love getting deep pow turns in and hiking up icy peaks in the chill of February, these five stylish and necessary products are for her. Winter is best enjoyed when you have the perfect apparel and gear to keep up with the outdoor adventures. That means the right fitted ski jacket, cozy gloves and hats, and supportive socks for downhill skiing and boarding.
From tried and true brands like Carhartt and Sorel, we rounded up five winter-ready products that stand up to the elements and stand out in a crowd, to the backcountry trails to the resort’s runs.
1. 686 Women’s Ski Jacket
Fur and pink make this 686 jacket an obvious choice for females who want a flirty style on the slopes while getting technical features and durability on the coldest days. Their modern fit is meant to be a mix of fitted style with enough room to build up layers underneath and a high collar to keep the wind out of your face. With air vents on the underarm to stay cool when working hard in the half-pipe and enough pockets to stash your phone, keys, and cards, your girl will love this bold winter jacket.
2. YOOWL Touchscreen Gloves
Selfies on the mountain never came so easy. With thumb and pointer finger screen touch capabilities, these leather and fleece-lined soft gloves are ideal for running around Aspen or Mammoth Mountain while snapping shots on your phone and keeping peeps updated on snowy escapades. This ‘oatmeal confetti’ colorway is a neutral option for women but the gloves are also available in 9 other colors.
3. Black Carhartt Beanie
Carhartt is the definition of winter cool. With collections that span classic khaki jackets to flirty beanies for the hillside, we love the rugged yet flattering attire from the U.S.-based apparel company. Toss on their cozy white and black pom-pom hat for a stylish look that pairs with any color palette.
4. Sorel Snow Boots
Most mountain dwellers and skiers won’t be caught without a pair of Sorel winter boots in their closet or car. Their rubber soles and fur-lined interiors offer warmth and stability when trekking through an icy parking lot or stomping up steep snowy cliffs—these boots really will take you there every time. They handle freezing and wet conditions well with sealed seams and their white and gray aesthetic makes them wearable with ski gear and for city adventures alike.
5. Darn Tough Compression Ski Socks
“We worked closely with boot fitters to dial in five precisely located comfort pads that diminish pressure points for the ultimate fit. Shin padding protects from “shin bang” while Achilles padding reduces heel lift.” Darn Tough talks about their compression ski socks that are designed to provide foot and sole support while downhill skiing. Made from Merino wool, they provide warmth during freezing days on the slopes.
Darn Tough is known for their lifetime warranty that guarantees them for life—so your girl can ride hard with no regrets.
