Pacific Northwest Regional Overview

"It only rains here" is the tongue-in-cheek adage of PNW skiers and snowboarders in effort to keep powder-seeking tourists and outsiders at bay. And, while blower might not be the most accurate descriptor of the Northwest's snow, this region is certainly no stranger to pow days. In fact, the Cascade Mountains average more annual snowfall than any other region in North America -- by far! Beloved by locals for the lack of any true tourist-attracting resorts, the Upper Left breeds hardcore riders who hold extremely waterproof shells in high regard.
 
 

Be prepared for the Northwest with the Helly Hansen Powderqueen 2.0 Jacket – boasting a 20k waterproof rating, fully taped seams and a longer stylish cut. Pair that with the Helly Hansen Switch Cargo 2.0 Pants for premium levels of dryness, durability and functionality. With trusted Helly Tech® lamination and the freeride fit, you’ll spend your day charging the mountain in comfort and true Pacific Northwest style.
 
 
 


Just as iconic as the Space Needle, overcast days are the signature of the Pacific Northwest. Don’t spend your ski day totally fogged out and get yourself some Smith Skyline Goggles. These feature ChromaPop™ lenses for high contrast, along with Smith's popular Fog-X anti-fog treatment for visibility in the roughest conditions. And let's not forget about your hands! The Dakine GORE-TEX Continental Mittens combine top-tier waterproofing with warm and moisture-resistant insulation for mitts you can count on in wet conditions.
