Ski Patrol... Finds Great Design!

We drove from 19 inches of snow on Long Island, to just a few inches in Vermont to go skiing!  When we arrived at Mount Snow last Wednesday, the sign said that it snowed '4 inches over the past 12 days'... as my kids would say "MAJOR Fail!".  However the man-made stuff made everyone happy.  Here's my shopping tip... skiing is not a requirement... if you're looking for a sporty winter coat and appreciate good design, then pick a ski shop and you'll find quality, great looking winter apparel for both men, women, and kids.  It's not inexpensive, but it makes the winter coats I saw in the department stores pale in comparison, and you won't have to toss (each season) a perfectly good jacket because of a broken zipper.  Just got back from Mt. Snow, and 'Mount Snow Sports', the ski shop in the 'Grand Summit Resort Hotel' has the best selection of everything from Marmot, Bogner Fire + Ice, Killy, and 'Banner Forty Seven's shirts...

If you're a serious skier, with a serious bank account, and think that many of the clothes are 'gimmicky' and the prints scream 'look at me', then take a look at KJUS.
