This zip top is warm for its weight, thanks to toasty Polartec Micro Velour Small Grid fabric. The bottoms use Polartec Power Stretch cloth and move freely as you ski or skin. That girl at the hut floated you her digits? Stash them in the laminated-zipper thigh pocket. [$99 for the top, $99 for the bottoms; arcteryx.com]

Powderhorn 2:36P.M.-3:50P.M. Vertical: 1,650 feet

While everyone followed local TV cameras down a groomed blue run, Fred Fischer and I followed Powderhorn ski instructor, Kate Huster, to a little gladed area called Ya-Hoo. With 12-inches of fresh, we laughed out loud as snow billowed over our knees making for the occasional face shot. At the bottom, the others were jealous to learn that while they were chasing the camera, we were chasing powder.
