They can't all be epic powder days, and honestly you wouldn't want them to be. Sometimes it's nice to just enjoy the bluebird weather and cruise around the resort, and The North Face's Apex STH Pant is the perfect pant for the job. Its breathable softshell fabric is completely windproof for those days when it seems like the jet stream's been redirected at your chairlift, and offers water-resistant protection when your perfect weather gets a little snowy. The Chimney venting system releases heat when you're working hard on the bumps, and the StretchVent ankle gaiters keep snow from getting in when you stumble upon a glorious pow stash from last week's storm. A cozy fleece backer delivers a soft feel through baselayers for added warmth, while a zippered waist pocket stashes a pass or trail map.
