Ease your way into skimo formal wear by just wearing pants. But not just any pants, start with the Syborg Racing model from La Sportiva. These have one of the most important skimo features, which are reinforced cutouts for race boots. Stop fussing with pants that get caught in your buckles, preventing your boots from locking into ski mode. Just open a window in the cuff for the buckle to pass through. When you’re ready for the next step in your formalization, you can add the matching jacket.
