Obviously, clothing meant to be worn while doing the sport
of skiing. A ski suit is a suit made to be worn over the rest of the clothes
when skiing or snowboarding. A ski suit made for more casual winter wear outdoors
may also be called a snowsuit. A ski suit can either be one-piece, in the
form of a jumpsuit, or two-piece, in the form of a ski jacket and matching trousers
(ski pants). A ski suit is made from wind- and water-resistant or waterproof
fabric, and generally has a non-removable liner made of nylon, silk, cotton or taffeta.
Its main function is to keep a person warm & dry while participating in winter
sports. Skiwear is good for Nordic (cross-country) or Alpine (down-hill) skiing.
A ski suit is meant to be worn with a base layer (clothing
underneath), which consists of a base layer top and base layer bottom. Base
layer bottoms are some times referenced as long johns. The warm bottoms and warm
shirt, usually designed for skiing would generally
away from the skin. Ski suits are often made of Gore-Tex or similar materials
that are high performance fabrics. They are often in the form of a shell suit,
to which the skier adds more or less warm underwear depending on the weather. Pockets
are usually made to be waterproof, so items put in them should stay dry.
Often referred to as race suits or speed suits, these are
the suits worn by professional and junior racers to improve their speed. They are
mostly made as one-piece suits.
Hats, gloves, and ski boots are also an important aspect
Ski boots are footwear used in skiing to provide a way to
attach the skier to skis using ski bindings. The ski/boot/binding combination is
used to effectively transmit control inputs from the skier's legs to the snow.
Modern alpine ski boots have rigid soles and attach to the ski at both toe and heel
using a spring-loaded binding. Front-entry (or "top-entry", rarely "overlap")
boots have been the primary boot design for most of the history of downhill skiing.
Rear-entry boots were brought to market in the early 1970s by the Hanson brothers
to address the issue of getting conventional boots on and off, while also providing
a generally better fit. The ski boot provides four functions; protecting the foot
from the elements, providing a mounting point for the binding, and transmitting
forces between the leg and the ski. In theory, there's no reason these have to be
combined in a single unit, and several designs have split these functions.
