You can always take off your jacket when you start sweating on steep skintracks, but your pants are a whole different matter. You need a pair of ski pants with extreme breathability for the uphill, but still shed snow on the downhill; queue the Outdoor Research Men's Skyward Pant. This pant's air-permeable membrane is Outdoor Research's most breathable option with fully taped seams to ensure reliable waterproofing for deep powder days. The Skyward also features a stretchy fabrication that moves with you from the first switchback to the final turn of the day, and the bib zips off just in case suspenders are a little too nerdy for your style. There are long zippers outside each thigh to ensure an ample amount of ventilated airflow in case you're still sweating on the ascent. The internal gaiters feature slots for your ski boot's power strap, and there are numerous pockets designed for avalanche beacons, smartphones, and more.
