I haven't taken this baby up on the slopes yet,but I've been wearing outside when its snowing, and it keeps me soooo sooo warm. It's a good fit too. It keeps true to size. I'm usually a medium so i got a 7. It fits great not too tight not too baggy. The hood is great too, you can probably fit a helmet under it so that's a plus. Overall great jacket. Cute styles too.
