Whether you're hitting the Northern Michigan ski resorts with two skis or one board, you'll look and perform great with these hats, jackets, goggles and gear.
This season, longer jackets in vibrant colors, patterned shirts and solid pants express the free-ride look, as clothing manufacturers are now designing apparel that can be worn by both the skier and snowboarder. Our model (and Traverse graphic designer Eleanor Krautmann) went shopping—here’s the ski outfit she pulled together.
