It’s snowboard season and I’m very stoked about it! As far as I’m concerned half of boarding is looking cool (lol), so I’m all about a good outfit for a trip to the mountain. Having said that, you really can’t sacrifice quality and practicality when it comes to boarding or you will end up uncomfortable, cold and probably hanging out in the lodge instead of actually enjoying the slopes. At least that’s what I do when I don’t have the right gear.
I was really excited when the opportunity arose to partner with Burton to feature some of their snowboarding apparel because I’ve been a fan of the brand for ages. I’ve had their products in the past and am notorious for stealing/borrowing certain Burton pieces from my family members. Both my sister and my dad have epic boarding jackets from them. Not only are their products built to sustain you on the slopes, but they look seriously cool too. There aren’t many brands out there that do both the style and the quality aspect as well as Burton. It’s a win win.
The days of the obnoxiously oversized snowboard outfits are gone. Although there are still a few diehard “snowboard bros” on the mountain with jackets down to their knees, it’s more of a streamlined look that’s being adopted these days. I love the silhouette of a flared snowboard pant and the Burton Vida Pant featured in this post are just that. The top almost feels like a jean with quilted hand-warming pockets, zipper vents in the legs and expandable bottoms to fit over your boots. These pants are totally waterproof, so you can take breaks and hang in the snow while still staying dry. These particular pants a shell without insulation, so I layer merino wool leggings underneath for warmth.
I’m obsessed with the Burton Chuteout Anorak Jacket that I’m wearing in these photos. The hoodie inspired pullover has the coolest streetstyle vibes while still being practical. The cloud like print is perfect when you’re literally boarding in the sky. The jacket is just long enough cover your bum when you’re sitting on the lift to keep you nice and warm. There’s a media pocket for your phone in the chest that’s accessible without undoing the jacket which is a genius idea! There’s also a built-in spray skirt to keep the powder from going up your jacket when you wipeout (it happens to all of us). This jacket is totally waterproof with light insulation, so I wear a merino base-layer and down vest underneath.
In my opinion, contrasting colours are cooler than matching when you’re on the mountain, so I love the persimmon pants and indigo jacket together. All in all, this snowboard look is my favourite one yet. I even got compliments from almost every liftie on the mountain, so the pros like it too. Dope!
