Luxury Ski Clothing | What to Wear on the Ski Slopes to Really Standout

Luxury Ski Clothing

We’ve lived in Telluride, Colorado now for 4 1/2 years. We moved here as an experiment to “test it out” for a year. I wasn’t sure I could handle the winter and spring seasons after living in Texas for 8 years. Well, 4 1/2 years later… we built a house here and have no plans to leave. It’s wonderful! (Read about how I manifested the house here.)

I’ve learned a ton of things since moving here. For example, did you know there is a sport called “Skinning?” You put “skins” on your skies, hike up a mountain slope and then downhill ski once you reach the top. The locals do this a lot when the ski resort closes down. It’s amazing exercise (I’m told)! Did you know there are two types of cross-country skiing?? Classic and Skate skiing. Skate skiing is REALLY hard. I prefer classic or Nordic cross-country skiing. I also learned about the existence of “EX” runs as well as “Hike To’s”. EX is short for expert ski runs. And Hike-To’s are where you hike to a higher peak and then ski down. Incidentally, my kids can now do both which really blows my mind. I’ve also learned a TON about outdoor gear…everything from snowshoes, to snow boots to ski gear.
Below I’m sharing some luxury ski clothing for those of you who really want to standout on the slopes!

Ski Suit

If you prefer a ski suit instead of dealing with pants, this Perfect Moment jumpsuit is, well, perfect! All of this brand’s pieces are warm and comfortable. I love the colors on this one and it also has a hood. I know you might be concerned about the potty situation, but consider how many times you actually go to the bathroom while skiing. I’ll bet it’s once a day… max.


Ski Jacket

Isn’t this jacket CUTE?? I love the light green and charcoal color combination. It’s another piece by Perfect Moment so it will be very warm. It also has a hood and elastic waistband if you want to create a little more shape.


Wool Sweater

I wanted to bring out more of the pretty light green in the ski jacket, so I found this beautiful wool sweater that’s perfect whether you’re actually skiing or après ski is more your style. Wool is a great top layer because it’s VERY warm. It doesn’t add a ton of bulk, so you look slimmer.


Printed Ski Buff

Here’s one of those things that I discovered after living here and skiing more often… a ski buff is now my go-to. I used to use the fleece buffs, but these are better because they are lightweight, and you can easily adjust them to cover your mouth and nose. They can also go up over your head to keep your head even warmer. I recommend getting a printed one for fun and a solid one!


Ski Pants

I don’t like the feeling of my pants digging into my waist on the chair lift, which is why I usually opt for suspender pants that come up higher. But these pants are super high-waisted so that shouldn’t be a problem. They’re also white, so they’re neutral and will go with all of your other ski clothing.


POC Ski Helmut

This helmet is really neat because it has built-in Bluetooth technology so you can answer phone calls and play music. I always play music now while skiing, but you have to be careful doing this. I only ski on days when there are not a ton of people on the mountain, so it feels safer. You can also look at Outdoor Tech’s Bluetooth helmet inserts (linked). With these, you can play music wirelessly from any ski helmet.


POC Goggles

I bought the REALLY nice and expensive POC interchangeable lens googles that everyone seems to love, but they are WAY too big for my small face. I ended up getting this pair as well. Remember to buy the same brand ski googles as your helmet to ensure a seamless fit. I’ve made this mistake and you end up having a huge space between the top of your goggles and the lip of your ski helmet.


Salomon Heated Ski Boots

These ski boots have built in heaters that you charge and then they keep your keep warm for hours! I bought some two years ago and love them. The other option is a pair of boot heaters (linked).


Light Green Beanie

It’s really nice to have a hat you can throw on at lunch. You can also use your neck buff as a headband if you don’t want to carry around your hat. This hat is such a fun, pretty, unexpected color.


White Pom Pom Hat

I also wanted to give you a more versatile option. This hat is lovely for après ski, outdoors or just regular winter outfits.


Givenchy Aviator Sunglasses

You have to finish off your look with the perfect sunglasses for your slope-side, outdoor lunch. Wear these on the chair lift too on days it’s warm and not windy.
