Whether you're a skier or a snowboarder, you know how important it is to stay dry and warm while you're out on the mountain. If even a little bit of snow or moisture gets under your clothes, you'll be uncomfortable for the rest of the day. Finding equipment and apparel you can rely on will help keep you comfortable and feeling great for the entire day.
Your winter pants, whether you choose snow pants or bibs, are an important part of your layering. At Buckman's Ski and Snowboard Shops, we carry a wide selection of ski pants and bibs from some of the best brands in the industry.

Benefits of Ski Pants
Ski pants and bibs work very similarly, but they each have their own unique benefits. Ski pants wear in similar ways to any other type of pants, settling around your waist. Although they look similar to other kinds of pants, they have specific features. The best ski and snowboard pants are made from breathable and waterproof materials to keep you dry while you're out. While ski pants and bibs have commonalities, ski pants have a few advantages.
Ski and snowboard pants cover less of your body, giving you greater freedom. If you've tried bibs and felt constricted in your movements, then ski pants could be the best solution. You can get in and out of them much easier than bibs, making changing and going to the bathroom much easier. They also tend to have a more flattering fit than bibs.
Women's snow pants are also more versatile than bibs. If you like being outdoors during the winter doing other activities besides skiing and snowboarding, you can wear your pants no problem. They're an excellent fit for any situation where you spend any amount of time outdoors while it's cold. Do you support your local high school football team but feel cold during games during the late season? Ski pants are a great fit there, too!
Benefits of Bibs
Bibs are similar to snow pants but have straps that go over your shoulders to help keep them in place. They're also made from waterproof materials to keep you dry and have their own set of advantages over ski and snowboard pants.
Women's ski bibs are more versatile when it comes to their sizing. You can adjust the straps over your shoulders to make them longer or shorter. This is especially helpful for kids. If you bought them pants instead, you would have to replace them every few years as they grow. But, when you buy them bibs instead, they can last them a lot longer.
Because bibs cover more of your body, they can also be warmer than snow pants. When the snow on the hill starts getting kicked up, it can find ways to get under your clothes and make you damp and cold. Bibs offer you more protection against the snow and other elements.
