As usual, I was in the market for a new pair of ski pants. I'm not a teenager anymore, but I wanted something that stood out a bit while still looking age-appropriate.
Though technically a snowboarding pant, they work fine for skiing (except for no cuff guards), plus I found they were the right balance between fashion and function - modern and stylish without looking like I was trying to hard.
Silly board short gimmick aside, these are one quality pair of pants for the money. Besides being comfortable, they're loaded with all the usual stuff - lots of pockets, vents, mesh liner - everything you need for a day on the hill.
