Let's face it, almost no one except maybe Chuck Norris can get away with sporting jeans while skiing. What you need instead is a pair of ski pants designed to charge the mountain with you and perform just as hard as all the rest of your gear arsenal. Now if these pants happen to slightly resemble jeans and you can roundhouse kick in them, that's just a bonus.

Now the only style you'll have to worry about on the slopes is that of those perfect turns.
From form fitting to roomy and relaxed, check out these 11 standout pairs of ski pants for 2014.
