I think we need to have a thread to discuss the best outfits on the hills. Some of my favorites so far this season:

-Onesies. The ladies look oh so sexy in these outfits. Such classic 80's styling and great functionality too. (Tongue firmly planted in cheek.)

-A 50+ year old guy with a bald head dressed to look like an extra from a Jay-Z video. Full-on baggie pants with a dozen or more pockets. Giant leather belt with shiny metal studs, and the puffed out parka with fur-lined hood. All he needed was the gold chain. (And yes, he had a board.)

-A girl my age in an Abbercrappie ski jacket freezing her cute little ass off. Nothing like spending $300 on a jacket that won't keep you warm.

Um, try late 60's, which is also probably the age of the wearer.

Saw a GUY at Killington this weekend in a purple onesie! My brother and I nearly fell over laughing!

Fashion over comfort

The opposite is just as funny: people wearing top of the line North Face down jackets... in 40 degree spring skiing weather.

I saw a Polish ski racer at Bellaire. He was 50+ and dressed in a super tight multi colored lycra body suit. It was so tight that his arms and legs looked like sausage (kielbasa) links. I almost needed CPR for that one.

Next time I ski I might have to go true 80s style. Jeans with gaiters and a blue vest with rainbow stripes, mork from ork style. Maybe some goggles worn backward to complete the look.

I love the guys in camouflage. Hope they don't go offtrail and get lost, nobody will find them.

Friend said they spotted a woman with a Chanel helmet and jacket, I was too far away to see it though.

Saw two young girls at Camelback that were riding in dresses; not fasion dresses but plain, homemade dresses. My thought was they were Hasidic or Muslim, not allowed to wear pants. They looked wet and cold, but like they were having a blast.

Saw a guy at Killington at the top of the park wearing a cowboy hat. Thought he looked ridiculous, but then thought maybe he was just so good it didn't matter, so we watched. Nope, he wiped out big time.

Yes, but how many one-piece Bogner jumpsuits did you see? At anywhere from $1200 - $2200, they kinda fall into mink coat territory, no?
