Ski jackets are more than just your run-of-the-mill puffer coats. While they do offer both warmth and style, they're made specifically with mountain conditions in mind—and make the most of materials that can do it all: keep you warm; wick away moisture; and withstand high altitudes. Whether you fancy yourself an expert or prefer a few runs down the bunny slope, we've uncovered ski jackets for women that are designed for every kind of experience.
