You can wear the Spyder Major Cable Sweater as a layer under a soft-shell and then later take it out to dinner.

As much as I hate to see winter slide by, spring is a delicious season with longer days, softer snow, warmer temps and some of the best skiing and riding of the year.

Whether you’re off on a family spring break ski trip, or just enjoying this lovely season at your home mountain, here are some of the best jackets and more for springtime on-the-snow, on-the-go fashion and fun! 

Let’s Start with a Giveaway

kassidy down sweater obermeyer

Me and my blue Kassidy Down Sweater from Obermeyer at Lake Tahoe. While the jacket is quite warm, I think I should have brought my mittens (and zipped up the pockets!).

A down sweater is one of my favorite spring skiing essentials. I’ve got the Obermeyer Kassidy Down Sweater and last season, I wore it alone as a jacket on really warm days, and as a layer on colder days.

Less bulk than a standard puffy jacket, it makes a cute layer for après ski, shopping or hanging out on the beach at Lake Tahoe (for example!).

My favorite details? Unique square baffles that give the jacket a fresh look; shiny, durable fabric; and a cute feminine, tapered shape.

Best Jackets for Spring Skiing

Fun trends for spring include bright colors and soft shells and 3-in-1 jackets that let you layer up, or strip down, depending on the variable spring weather!

On Mountain:                                               

Skiable Softshells let you layer how you want, or choose to not layer much at all, during spring’s warm days.

3-in-1 Jackets offer season-long versatility, but really shine in spring. Wear the outer shell and inner layer together on colder days, or shed the inner layer – or outer shell – on warmer days to cool dow.

Off Mountain:

Insulators, like down sweaters, vests and hoodies are perfect for spring. You can layer them on mountain, and uncover them when you hit the town.  

Insulators keep you warm but look great with jeans too!

Patagonia Down Sweater:

Vests offer extra insulation when you need it. Later, pair them with jeans and  zip-up over a mid-layer for the perfect après look.

Sweaters and Hoodies are another layering option on mountain and off. They are especially fun for cozy evenings after a long day of skiing, even in the spring!

    I always try to pack a “cute layer for après ski.” Actually, I pretty proud of myself if I find ski socks packed in my luggage.

    I’ll pass on the cute layer, since i would rather après ski in a hot tub, but I’m sure my wife would enjoy a layering option.

    Any one of those jackets would have been perfect for rooting on the Broncos from the uncovered stands in New Jersey early this month. Oops. Sore subject. Sorry.

    • braveskimom says:

      Let’s see. A lot in here. First, yes, you were in NJ and got to see the Broncos in their less than glorious state! Still, I don’t think this one would have looked good one you! Best of luck to your wife and keep an eye on your socks! Cheers!
