You had fun, but not as much fun as we had. We got to show off our bulging quads, and admire the shapely girls.

"it's not about what we as woman and athletes can do on the slopes"

First, I don't think Warren's talking about "athletes" here. He's also not talking about going back to wool pants, but something using the new softshell materials. What Warren's talking about, and what the sport is missing, is the first, second and third timers who ski a few weekends a year.

I don't think these 5 - 10 day a year folks are attracted by $500, technical, waterproof outfits that are good for frontside, back side or climbing K2. When the weather's that bad they stay at home or at least in the bar. Pushing bullet proof gear at them just pushes them away.
Even Sears and J C Penny exercise equipment ads choose to outfit their models (men and women) in something more attractive than sweat pants and sweat shirts, yet most ski wear looks more like a baggy sweat suit than typical workout wear.

I see some tight fitting pants trying to make a comeback at the stores. The high end fashion ski clothes makers (Prada, Gucci, Pucci Chanel) all have tight pants in their line up; since they are all about fashion.

I think the problem, if you want to call it that, are the snow boarders. They represent the young and hip (even if more and more are over 40 and not so hip). They only wear loose clothing, even for competition. Since we all want to be young, nobody wants to be the old dude in the tights......now if the youngin's all started wearing the tight stuff again, you better believe even those that should not be wearing such stuff would some how manage to squeeze into them.

I admit when I see anyone wearing tight pants, I think to myself they are old school for sure.

BTW, women's fashion exists for one purpose, to attract the opposite sex (well thats not true, its to make money as with everything in the world) err....one purpose to the consumer that is. We are all conditioned to think certain things look good, but its certainly not out of function, how are 4" heels and skin tight jeans functional when compared to some hiking shoes and cargo pants? Well, perhaps they are functional....at attracting attention from men, like it or not thats what its made for.

There has been a multi part special run on Discovery or TLC about human sexuality, it covers many aspects about why women and men dress the way they do. It all comes down to attracting the opposite sex. Know why women wear red lipstick (the original color) ? Ill put it gently, so that the lips on their face more closely resemble those elsewhere. Although we have modified much of the original intentions of our grooming rituals, but the underlying reason for it all is sex.

So ladies get with the program and show us those buns of steel! During the middle ages (I think that was the time), a woman with a good ass was much more attractive than one with large breasts, reason being the breasts eventually dropped, but a good strong round butt lasted and lasted (also saw it on a TV special about the butt craze).

Oddly my GF does not want tight ski pants, and she is a Long Island JAP....my guess is that its because no one else is wearing them.

I kind of have to agree with Kimmy on this one...I mean I am certainly one to appreciate a hot woman's good form (pun intended) in a pair of tight stretch pants.... but to be honest, seeing a good looking woman, even if she was wearing baggy new school pants, ripping up a steep angled bumped up tree run would turn me on a lot more than seeing one in tight stretch pants struggling down a bunny slope!

They need not be mutually exclusive.....now imagine twins, one in tights the other in bro/brah pants, both ripping

This is mostly intended as a repost, to correct some egregious spelling errors made when typing this initially on the fly:

By me:
"Stretch pants, jeans, baggy pants, insulated or non-insulated Gore-Tex, Event, etc. What difference does it really make? The main thing is to stay warm for the conditions and have fun. We don't need fashion police on the slopes and who really cares anyway? People can change for Apres ski if they feel so inclined.

I started skiing as a kid in jeans that were scotch-guarded, several sweaters and a windbreaker. I still managed to have fun and stay reasonably warm."

But in answer to Newfydog's comment that his friends had more fun watching and wearing stretch pants than jeans, my observation is this: the same people who look good in stretch pants look good in jeans (although maybe they stay a tad warmer). And those who shouldn't be wearing stretch pants probably shouldn't be wearing jeans either-at least not tight fitting ones. But hey, to each his/her own.

Sorry, but the baggy pants showing the butt crack cleavage just doesnt do it for me. I'll take stretch pants for the win!

Uhh, generally, I'd have to agree with you, but I think my final vote will have to wait to determine exactly who's butt cleavage it is. I mean if Julia Mancuso was wearing some baggy pants showing some crack and some ugly, fat woman was wearing stretch pants....I think I'd be more interested in Julia's butt. Just some food for thought!

i would much rather be warm and out skiing.
my girlfriend who wore those wool in the boot pants always ended up complaining about being frozen and had to go in and get warm, while i had several layers and managed to stay warm and put more runs in!!!!!!
she did look good, tho.

What writing?

Stretch pants? No. The look wrong for skiing. My wife could pull it off (yay me!) but it would still just not look right...I'd prefer to see women who can ski and ride well, who are out to have fun, with a big ass grin on their faces.

What are you talking about ???

What are you people talking about .... I see young ladies in very tight pants skiing every day! Go Lindsey!!! I think you've been looking in the wrong places.:
