When that truly epic powder day finally hits, you won't want to be the one friend whose waterproofing isn't up to snuff. Keep the lodge dry-out sessions to a minimum and the face-shots to a maximum with the Burton Gore-Tex Ballast Pants. These two-layer shell pants feature a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane that not only shuts out moisture from snow, sleet, slush, and any other precipitation Mother Nature can dream up, but also allows your body heat to escape to ensure that you're never packing too much heat. Burton's Living Lining also ensures climate-controlled comfort, keeping you cool when you heat up and warm when you're feeling frigid, while inner thigh vents provide quick, cooling relief when you start to build heat on tough tree runs. Add on a set of stretchy boot gaiters to keep snow shut out on deep days, and you've got a pair of pants that can handle anything you can.
