When your season's pass is in the east, but you make a point of spending time every year skiing western powder, you're going to need a jacket that covers the gamut of conditions you'll encounter this winter. The Columbia Womens Alliance Parka fits the bill, giving you multiple options of wear to suit any weather condition: bright and cold, stormy, warm and slushy, and even (shudder) rainy.
Fully waterproof and breathable, the Columbia Alpine Alliance Parka for women is insulated alpine outerwear that's ideal for skiing in a range of cold weather conditions. It features a three-in-one configuration with a zip-in insulating jacket that you can wear inside the shell on wet days, or wear separately when the sun is out. The seam-sealed outer shell has a waterproof and breathable Omni-Tech fabric that keeps water and wind out while allowing a moderate degree of vapor to escape from inside the jacket. Up top is an attached hood that's fully adjustable and sized to accommodate most skiing helmets on the market today. If you tend to ski later in the season, you'll appreciate the zippered underarm venting for convenient cooling in sunny conditions. The inner insulating jacket features a chest pocket and two zippered handwarmer pockets.
