Hi everyone. Hope you are enjoying your summer! I am finally going to invest in a new pair of ski pants because mine have lost all waterproofness and deciding between the Norrona lofoten Gore-tex Pro Light and the Gortex insulated.

I am 5'10 and 145, very, very cold natured and will be skiing mostly in VT but also for 10 days in Jackson Hole. I really love spring skiing also and will ski at Snowbird in April and Squaw for memorial day.

Should I go for the non-insulated because of the spring skiing? Will they be the more versatile or will they be too warm for spring skiing anyway?

Thank you anyone in advance!

Personally I would get the insulated ones. You ski mostly in VT. It's cold. How much/many layers are you going to need to wear the non-insulated ones to be happy. When you go West, take lighter base layers or even just tights and open the zips on the insulated ones.

Agree about going with the insulated pants. I have insulated pants without vents and I’ve never had issues with my bottom feeling too warm even in 50 degree+ weather.
