I've only made it through one season with these pants but I am in love! As a backcountry pant, these were light, and the vent pockets on the inside and outside of the leg made for easy temperature control. On the warmest of days, these were light enough to stuff into my pack, and not take up much room. These pants were super flattering on, not super tight fitting and very moveable, and the adjustable waist allowed me to find the perfect fit. As for resort skiing, I will have to find some warmer base layers to pair with these pants! They are in fact a shell, and my legs felt the cold after sitting on chairlifts for too long. If you're using these without the intention of hiking, invest in some good base layers. All in all love the pant and the sizing!!
