Ski Trousers: 5 Pairs That You Will Love and Won’t Break the Bank

We just got back from skiing in Vermont and had the best time ever! Skiing really has become a great McClelland family sport/activity for us. The one thing I will say when it comes to skiing is that you need to be dressed for the part. You can’t just show up and ski. You need to have warm clothes from top to bottom or you’ll be in after 1 ski run. I wanted to share today all about some of the best ski trousers that you can get for your next trip.

Let’s face it – you need (at the very least) a ski jackets, ski trousers, ski socks and a hat. I’ll never forget skiing with my husband for the first time YEARS ago, he showed up in jeans! Yes, JEANS to ski in! I understand that he thought he’d be fine, but he didn’t bank on falling and having his jeans freeze! After that he never went skiing without ski trousers again!

There are so many different options in ski trousers out there, so I wanted to share with you 5 pairs that I love and think are perfect for a day / weekend of skiing. You don’t want to break the bank when you’re prepping for a ski trip, but you do want to be smart and have the proper items. If you don’t have items that will keep you warm and comfy, it’s almost crazy to even hit the slopes!

I started skiing when I was 5 years old, so I know that ski trousers can be expensive. If you’re someone whose not a HUGE skier, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars for a pair of pants. You can easily grab a pair that will keep you warm and also do exactly what you need them to do – keep you dry and on the slopes! I want to share with you 5 pairs that are under $100 that are great to buy and ys for a ski trip!
