Luxury ski wear
We have lived in Telluride, Colorado for 4 1/2 years now. We moved here as an experiment to “test it out” for a year. I wasn’t sure I could handle the winter and spring seasons after living in Texas for 8 years. Well, 4 1/2 years later… we’ve built a house here and have no plans to leave. It’s fantastic! (Read how I manifested the house here.)
I’ve learned a lot of things since I moved here. For example, did you know that there is a sport called ‘Skinning’? You put “skins” on your air, hike up a mountainside, then ski down once you’ve reached the top. The locals do this a lot when the ski area closes. It’s a great exercise (I’m told)! Did you know that there are two types of cross-country skiing? Classic and Skate skiing. Skate skiing is REALLY hard. I prefer classic or cross country skiing. I also learned about the existence of “EX” runs as well as “Hike To’s”. EX is short for expert ski slopes. And at Hike-To’s you hike to a higher peak and then you ski down. By the way, my kids can now do both, which really amazes me. I also learned a ton about outdoor gear…everything from snowshoes to snowshoes to ski equipment.
Below I share some luxury ski wear for those of you who really want to stand out on the slopes!

If you prefer a ski suit instead of pants, this Perfect Moment jumpsuit is, well, perfect! All garments from this brand are warm and comfortable. I like the colors on this one and it also has a hood. I know you may be concerned about the potty, but think about how often you actually go to the bathroom while skiing. I bet it’s once a day… max.
Isn’t this jacket CUTE?? I love the combination of light green and charcoal. It’s another piece from Perfect Moment, so it will be very hot. It also has a hood and elasticated waistband if you want to create a little more shape.
I wanted to bring out more of the pretty light green in the ski jacket, so I found this gorgeous wool jumper which is perfect whether you’re really into skiing or après-ski is more your style. Wool is a great top layer because it is VERY warm. It doesn’t add much bulk, so you look slimmer.
Printed Ski Buff
This is one of those things I discovered after living here and skiing more often… a ski enthusiast is now my go-to. I used the fleece buffs, but these are better because they are lightweight and you can easily adjust them to cover your mouth and nose. They can also go over your head to keep your head even warmer. I recommend getting a printed one for fun and a solid one!
I don’t like the feeling of my pants sticking to my waist at the chairlift, so I usually opt for suspender pants that come up higher. But these pants have a super high waist, so that shouldn’t be a problem. They’re also white, so they’re neutral and go with all your other ski wear.
POC Ski Helmut
This helmet is very neat as it has built-in Bluetooth technology so you can answer phone calls and play music. I now always play music while skiing, but you have to be careful with this. I only ski on days when there aren’t many people on the mountain so it feels safer. You can also check out Outdoor Tech’s Bluetooth helmet inserts (paired). This allows you to play music wirelessly from any ski helmet.
I bought the REALLY nice and expensive POC interchangeable lens googles that everyone seems to love, but they are WAY too big for my small face. I ended up getting this pair too. Remember to buy the same brand of ski goggles as your helmet to ensure a seamless fit. I made this mistake and you end up with a huge space between the top of your goggles and the lip of your ski helmet.
Salomon heated ski boots
These ski boots have built-in heaters that charge you and keep you warm for hours! I bought them about two years ago and love them. The other option is a pair of boat heaters (paired).
light green hat
It’s really nice to have a hat to put on for lunch. You can also use your neck buff as a headband if you don’t want to carry your hat with you. This hat is such a fun, beautiful, unexpected color.
White Pom Pom Hat
I also wanted to give you a more versatile option. This hat is great for après-ski, outside or just for regular winter outfits.
Givenchy Aviator Sunglasses
You need to complete your look with the perfect sunglasses for your lunch outside on the slope. Also wear these on the chairlift on days when it’s warm and not windy.
After a decade in TV news, the desire to help women “look beautiful” led to a career switch. I started my own clothing consultancy, styling ‘real’ women for years. In 2014 I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We’re now a community of nearly 700,000 dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40… who know age isn’t something to hide from. Life is just beginning for us!!
