Whether you’re an expert who revels in knee-deep powder in the Back Bowls or a casual skier who cruises the groomers, you’ve got to be ready for a variety of conditions on the mountain. Don’t risk having a bad time just because you didn’t bring the right gear along – our Ultimate Gear Guide is here to help you make the most of your trip.

Layers, layers, layers:

Since 1877, Helly Hansen has been on the forefront of innovative products. Helly Hansen worked to develop what we know today as the 3-Layer System™. The 3-Layer System™ calls for wearing a base-layer, mid-layer, and outer-layer to provide the best possible for protection from the elements.

The Helly Hansen HH LIFA® Active ½ Zip is a performance baselayer, delivering light weight insulation and comfort for everyday use and high performance activities. HH LIFA® light constructed with 100% Lifa fiber is quick-dry, very breathable and super lightweight. Continually perfected over the last 40 years, Lifa® Stay Warm technology is the unique ingredient of all Helly Hansen base layers.

The second layer is your mid layer.
Fleece is a standard mid-layer because it is appreciated for its warmth and comfort. The Men’s November Propile Knit Fleece and Women’s Graphic Fleece Hoody are a perfect piece to keep you warm throughout the winter.

We saved the best for last- The Helly Hansen Alpha 3.0 Jacket! and the Women’s Kvitegga Shell Jacket, The new Life Pocket is integrated in the chest pocket and will preserve the battery life span of your mobile phone longer in the cold environment. You will not fall short of technical highlights on this jacket with a light 4 way highly breathable, waterproof, stretch Helly Tech® Professional outer fabric and a brim with hiviz fabric to unfold when the slopes are crowded to keep you visible for fellow skiers. The jacket use Primaloft® Insulation with a body mapping philosophy to keep you warm in the right areas and our highly innovative H²Flow™ system turbocharging mechanical venting keeps you dry, warm or cool depending on the outside conditions.
