Ski trousers with Columbia waterproof technologies
Check out our women’s ski trouser collection and get ready for this winter’s snowboard and ski sessions! Our ski and snow trousers are designed to provide durable protection against the winter’s hardships: cold, wind and snow. As any skier would know, an important factor to staying warm on the slopes is staying dry. Keeping snow and water out is crucial for an enjoyable day carving the pistes. Our ski and snowboard trousers feature waterproof protection made by Columbia, for you to stay dry.
Check out the 3 levels of waterproofness we use for women’s ski trousers:
Drizzle: This is a light waterproof protection. Very light and breathable. Ideal for sunny or occasional skiing. A classic waterproof fabric, they use our Omni-Shield technology (but it does not feature a membrane)
Rain: These trousers are perfect for most ski women. They’re equipped with waterproof tech with sealed seams (Omni-Tech): a classic go-to solution. It will fit most needs.
Downpour: This is our ultimate waterproofness level for women’s ski trousers. They allow you to face even the worst weather for an extended period of time. Perfect for mountain enthusiasts and skiers with the highest of standards.
Omni-Shield™: Provides long-lasting resistance to liquid absorption and repellency against both water and stains. These trousers are great when facing light rain or snow.
Omni-Tech™: Provides multi-layered and durable waterproof and windproof protection. At the same time, it’s made of breathable fabric, letting excess warmth and moisture escape. These ski trousers are great for wet conditions and keep you dry and clean.
Omni-Tech™ 3D: Provides the same multi-layered waterproof protection but fully seam sealled, with enhanced next-to-skin comfort. These trousers have soft fuzzy-print lining, so you can feel comfortable on the slopes, even in heavy snow.
Ski trousers with Columbia’s thermal-reflective technologies
When the goal is staying outdoors in the winter, the challenge isn’t only to keep dry, but also warm. The coldest months of the winter have the power to make all skiers shiver. This is where we enter the game: We have provided several of our women’s ski trousers with one of two main thermal reflective technologies. The result is long-lasting and efficient warmth. You won’t just endure the freezing temperatures as you carve the pistes, you’ll enjoy every minute of it!
Here are the two options you will encounter when browsing our choice of women’s ski and snow trousers.
Omni-Heat™ Reflective: A technical liner that utilises silver dots to reflect your body warmth and keep it there with you. On top of that, we generally add a medium insulation of 40 to 60 grams to improve the warmth feeling.
Omni-Heat™ Infinity: Tech that uses tiny gold dots to reflect body heat. It’s our gold standard in warmth and provides instant heat, at the same as it’s highly breathable. A great choice when you want to be out enjoying ice cold days.
