well you're on NS, so I'll tell you what you're gonna hear repeatedly
Oakley and armada have good stuff, but very popular, and saga is trying and the rest is crap...
but really the question is where do you ski? that dictates your outerwear. I see you're in montana, so I'd recommend this stuff, since I'm guessing you hunt pow...
Eira (3L stuff is good for the price)
patagonia (new freeride stuff)
Homeschool (PNW based)
Flylow (most durable stuff ever)
Black Diamond (started apparel for 13/14, looks sick)
