HAT: Coal Colorado
Hand-knit from fin acrylic, the Colorado hat features toasty full-fleece earflaps.

JACKET: Sessions Trifecta Jacket
Remove the Trifecta's snap-in midlayer come springtime – the outer shell sheds wind and water and breathes through mesh chest vents. There's even a Recco avalanche-rescue reflector embedded in the jacket's innards.

SHIRT: Eesa Blindside
Borrowing the look of classic rugby shirts, including horizontal striping and a wide collar, the Blindside is actually a techy baselayer made out of polyester wicking fabric with an antimicrobial finish to prevent you from stinking up the joint.

GLOVES: Holden Spring Glove
The waterproof, breathable cowhide Spring Glove smells gloriously of leather. Its microfleece lining provides warmth without sacrificing dexterity.

GOGGLES: Electric EG2 Goggles
The large curved frames of the EG2 fit wider faces. Visual clarity comes from anti-fog spherical lenses and comfort from triple-layer face foam.

PANTS: Planet Earth Boulder Plaid Pant
They're stylish, but these pants were designed for the foulest conditions. With mesh-lined inner leg vents and taped seams, the Boulder stays dry in wet storms and blends in among the bros.



5.  Park City Mountain Resort, Utah

Park City

Park City's 3,000-plus acres include everything from pitch-perfect high-speed cruisers to several days’ worth of above-treeline, hike-to steeps and bowls.

15. Winter Park, CO

Winter Park

Mary Jane—named for a mining-era lady of the night—and its sister area, Winter Park, offer plenty of prospects for good skiing, including bumps and powder-filled bowls. Forming one of the closest major resorts to Denver, the two areas spread across five mountains and 3,078 acres. Add 3,060 feet of vertical, 30 feet of snowfall, and a direct train from Denver and it’s no wonder why the Front Range packs the place on Saturdays.
