Sending it hard requires gear that won't limit your motion. The Patagonia
Snowshot Pants fit the bill with their H2No® Performance Standard 2-Layer fabric with DWR finish. This not only allows you to move with freedom, but also provides an excellent waterproof / breathable barrier for protection in not-so-great weather conditions. An internal waist adjustment provides a customized fit and leg gaiters seal out postholing snow. Add interior thigh vents and you've got snowpants that will keep you going big no matter what mother nature is brewing up.
