Beaver Creek, Colorado
What we Thought:
> Style: With limited color options, Patagonia didn’t offer a scheme to suit every skier. However, the Pow Slayer kit (pictured 2nd from right above) colors are generally appealing, though the pants sparked much debate over whether it was mustard yellow or lime green (“folios green,” according to Patagonia).
> Performance: How much pow did I actually slay in this kit, you might ask? To be honest, very little, mostly due to my own missed opportunities and I-70 traffic misery. While I felt like I neglected this namesake, that didn’t stop the PowSlayer kit from becoming a fundamental piece of my winter 14/15 setup.
