Gear, Style + Tech on the Snow

Before you clip on that season pass, take a look a this season’s style.

Au revoir ultra-brights and grays. 2014-2015 is all about connecting you with Mother Nature through natural, earthy tones—embracing the openness and feeling of freedom of bright blues, the security and comfort of cargo, and the abundant energy
and endurance of golden rust. These muted and flat natural colors embody the durability and roughness of the earth, with styles that incorporate subtle patterns and alluring ethnic elements to welcome you back to the mountain.

And in true fashion, the trends will come full circle and fuse elements of snow and street. You’ll see new plaids and a bit of pink—and everything will be trimmed with new technology to enhance your experience.
