Down hill skier here..which tights would you recommend? I see a lot of mention of use for running and bicycling but not much on skiing.

Responded on

If you are looking for tights to use as a base layer for skiing, I would recommend going with something in 3/4 length. That way you don't have the extra bulk of the tights inside your boot or bunched up around the calf. Might want to look at the CW-X 3/4, Mountain Hardwear Mighty Power 3/4 or a few brands make 3/4 merino.

I don't agree with the 3/4 comment. I have the full length CW-X tights and have been using them to ski for the past 4 seasons without any problems or irritation. I do not have the Insulator tights and wear the regular ones with only my ski pants on top and have never been cold even on the worst days. You cannot go wrong with these tights.
