A silver grey would look good with that jacket I think.

Our battle cry from 2011 ... "bring back the flouro!"  

 

And then they did.

Doesn't pretty much any color go with black???

I guess pick out a color you ordinarily like and run with that.

Whatever color you can get on sale...

White with black highlights will be best. Fit will determine brand. I'd look for a black pattern on white.

If you ski very often, black is the only color which is practical.

I would go with the NF Freedom pants in Metallic silver (light grey).

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Do you play roulette?  Always bet on black.

Candy Apple Red or cherry would look GREAT for about an hour.

Dark gray/Charcoal or black would look great for a long time.

 

I'm with VA on the pants and all ski clothing, but especially pants.  Anything that isn't very dark will have lift pulley oil stains and mud stains on it in a very short time.  I mostly go with black, navy, or gray when I have a choice.  I'd take red or green for an unbelievable low price though knowing that it will be looking kinda nasty in a pretty short period of time if I actually wear it.

Just get the NF Free Thinker in black. I always think the same brand/model/line in both pants and jackets will work better!

Something like this (color option: Wk Print)?  http://www.sierratradingpost.com/ride-snowboards-westlake-print-shell-pants-waterproof-for-men~p~4633y/?filterString=mens-snowboard-pants~d~410%2F&colorFamily=03

 

It has the black and red to go with the jacket.  The print will help disguise stains or repairs, if you tear them.

Black or grey pants with that black jacket will make you a mountain ninja. Are you looking for practical? Posting a picture of your jacket says to me you have an eye on fashionable.

If you don't like white cause of the obvious commitment to cleaning.... Go green. North Face Freedom...

Acid/fluro green... always.

Seriously, whatever keeps you warm and dry will be more important once you get out there.  Otherwise, go black you'll never go back.  I hate people who start bitching to lifties that the grease from the chair made a spot on their Bogners.  Black is the best choice for pants.  And frankly, even for jackets.  

 

....Is this a troll?  Can't help wondering...

I will never ever,ever,ever, ever, ever.......................................ever,buy another pair of black ski pants in my LIFE!!! Life is to short,               for black ski pants.Of course that's just viking9s opinion.

I've got a pair of white ski pants made by Orange that I would rock with that jacket.

Now let me go through my collection of goggles to find the right pair ...

 

edit to mention, don't sit under the cable/chair arm with white pants on. I always let the people with black pants take that seat biggrin.gif
