The Lillehammer Pant is a great mid-weight shell pant. Blocks wind nicely and offers protection from the elements. Not sure how this would hold up in pouring rain, as tends to happen in the South Cascades, but it was wonderful in the drier North Cascades region. I am a stickler about sturdy fasteners and the zippers did not disappoint. The brushed fleece inner offers a bit of extra warmth without making a sweaty situation. We skiied between 28F and 34F (both in direct sun and overcast conditions) and I was quite comfortable with a thin baselayer. On the sunny days, losing the baselayer would have been a slightly more comfortable option, actually. The cuffs stayed put over my boots and the zippered legs made getting kitted up a breeze. I ordered the small and am happy with the size - not crushing on my mid-section and the slim leg is perfect.
