6 Spring Skiing Essentials for the On-Mountain Party Enthusiasts
Updated: Dec 19, 2021
Following last season’s on-mountain mask mandates and reservation requirements, this year is surely to relieve the pent up demand for spring skiing festivals, parties, and picnics! Below is our list of the trendiest spring skiing essentials for the 21’ and 22’ season!
1. Shade the Sun with Smith Chromapop Sunglasses
In the springtime, goggles can unquestionably be too warm. Keep cool with the Shift Mag sunglasses and you’ll be sure to get some compliments. These 70s style glasses are both stylish and protective. The wide lenses give you the protection you need from snow glare in the hot spring sun. They also protect you from snow and ice while you rip up those slushie bumps. Not to mention, they transition well when closing day comes and you get back on your mountain bike!
2. Bare It All With a Swimsuit
For many, a bathing suit is plenty while out shredding on a spring day in Crested Butte. And we agree, if you got it. Rock it. On super warm days, start working on your tan by baring it all by wearing a bikini on the slopes. And if you are really sending it (particularly with a bikini top) you may want to secure it down with some handy fashion tape.
3. Stay Warm With Spring Layers
If you’re looking for something a bit more protective, layering is key. This season, we feel that Montec will be the hottest brand on the snow. We particularly like their array of fleeces. Most of these could be worn comfortably on their own in spring conditions. For an overcast day, throw on a shell and you won’t have any issues with wind chill.
4. Bring the Party on Your Back
If you’re hosting the picnic on the mountain top, you better bring lots of beer. That’s why we believe the yeti Hopper Backflip is their best cooler yet. With a 2:1 ice to can ratio, this backpack can hold up to 20 cans all while keeping them ice cold! This cooler is for serious hosts who want a bag that is built to last. The entire pack is waterproof and resistant to punctures. This is the ultimate picnic pack for those on mountain parties.
5. Protect from Helmet Hair with a Beanie
Carhartt beanies have become the standard for ski fashion across the west. We don’t recommend skiing without a helmet, but it’s always nice to cover up your helmet hair once apre starts. Keep yourself stylin even as the sun sets and the bars begin to buzz. Who knows, this $17 hat might just send you home with that special someone!
6. Flash Your Ski Socks
We know you’ll have your boots on for most of the day, but skiing in shorts invites the opportunity to style with your footwear. In skiing, patterned socks are what all the cool kids wear. Stance has stepped up their game creating snow performance socks that will keep your feet feeling good all day long. With anti-rub tech, this sock gets 5 star ratings from skiers who really know what they’re doing.
The team at ColoradBro hopes that you’ll be more prepared and sexier than ever while out on the slopes this season. We can’t wait to see you out there! Look for the guy in the speedo and that might just be us.
