Outerwear Despite their simple styling, Helly Hansen?s Crystalline Jacket ($400) and Icicle pants ($125) are deceptively technical and primed for powder. They?re warmly insulated, but the Crystalline?s water-resistant underarm venting, removable powder skirt, detachable hood and easy-to-reach torso venting keep the air flowing up top, while the Icicle?s side vents and waterproof-breathable fabric do the trick down below.

Base layer Appropriately named, Hot Chillys PeachSkins (top $30, bottoms $35) feel soft and fuzzy against your skin, and their antimicrobial fibers ward off unwanted odors. On top, the relaxed fit of the long-sleeve crew neck wears nicely over the turtleneck, adding a dash of color.

Goggles In the school of eyewear, the sleek Uvex Saphir ($45) earns an A+ in three key areas: comfort (thanks to soft foam and an ultraflexible frame), styling (its low profile is ideal for smaller faces) and price (leaving more money for lift tickets).

Helmet Go ahead and go hard: The lightweight Salomon Essential Performance ($140) sports an antimicrobial liner to ward off odors from whatever sweat you may work up, while its 10 vents kick in to cool you down.

Gloves Thanks to the sleek profile of The North Face Jupiter ($95), you can tuck its gaiter under your sleeve to keep flakes from crashing the party. A goggle scraper takes face shots head-on, but it?s the hidden elastic wrist closure that really seals the deal.
