I use these for downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country, and absolutely love these pants and am looking for another pair. They are very cute and comfortable, and I could wear them out at night and no one would know they're snow pants. The other reviewer who used them for snowboarding said her butt was soaked at the end of the day, and I do agree that if you are a snowboarder who sits around on the snow a lot your butt will get wet in these, but I don't have to sit down to strap in, so it's not a big problem for me. Otherwise, cutest snow pants ever. Buy them!
