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.

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?

Endured the madness at Keystone and A-basin yesterday. Keystone had lots of Euro-men sporting the onesies. Also saw some (American) dudes wearing Carhart Coveralls.

I can't imagine I'd be a big fan of snowboarding/skiing if my big week to go was the week between x-mas and new year's. It was miserably crowded at both places.

That guy was at Breck today!!!

But seriously, from the looks of things at Breck and Keystone this week, onesies seem to be the new fashion for men and women alike. How does something like this happen?

yeah, the front range resorts are insanely crowded in general, but just aren't worth it during festivus. i get angry in utah when i am in a lift line for longer than 3 minutes.

True enough, but when your timing is lucky enough to catch the rope drop on the High Notch entry to Backside* with 17" of new, it made the 12 minute wait on the Collins lift line more than worth it. We were among the first dozen today. </gloat>

was it good today? i figured it would be heavy and not very fun, so i spent the day working on the plumbing(not very fun). planning on going to alta tomorrow.

the nice thing about mostly skiing early in the morning on weekdays is that i get first chair quite a bit.

Saw a guy at Okemo this weekend ( have seen him before) talked to him on the lift.

Imigrant to the USA and lives in FF county
73 years old
shoulder length gray hair
Those short 2 foot trick skis
No poles skied with his hands behind his back like a speed skater
Pair of black ski pants
Tweed jacket (like a suit jacket)
Ipod (listening to the beach boys)

Ripping it up like a guy 1/3 his age. He put in solid runs all afternoon long without stopping. sight to see

I've said it too many times already, but I'll say it again. Age is a state of mind. I took care of a lady today who is 90. Breath sounds clear as a bell. Oxygen sats of 95% on room air. She came in because she had been feeling weak... For over a year. She was pissed cuz all her docs kept telling here was "Well, you're old." Her response "But I want to play golf, and I don't have the energy."

Well, we found a very slow GI bleed today. Odds are we'll get that fixed and she'll be back to golfing in less than a week. Yay for old people who still rock out! (Except for the Stones' half-time show. That was just creepy.)
