There are resorts that rent basic ski pants to beginners in the rental department.
Its like someone is trying to set beginners up for success.

The blue streaks you left on the snow when sliding down the snow on your bum. I wore a pair of Big Macs (bibs) over ski clothes 1 day. The looks were hilarious.

Jeans go back the to root of freestyle skiing. Bandanas, sweaters, gators and sunglasses all were the garb for the con conformist in the 70's.
In the 70s it really didn’t matter because none of the ski clothes were waterproof or particularly warm anyway.

This was a classic NEPA look in the early 80’s......if only the CB pullover was red with blue sleeves, red gaiters, and red/black Raichles..... swear that was a younger me in Junior High.....lol

Don’t ever remember getting cold either.....guess I was too busy with my buddies having fun and chasing tail...

Seeing skiers in jeans makes me smile. Brings back some sweet memories. When my jeans got wet I'd loot the lodge of trail maps and brochures and stuff them down my pants. Trail maps for my thighs, 10 page brochures for my butt.

Never skied in jeans or gaiters - even with a homemade rope tow hill in backyard. Also, never had rear entry boots.

“You have to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything” - some country song.

Cords are way better than jeans, I prefer the light blue ones to go with my wallabies.
