Even though the weather might be warming up, that doesn’t mean time on the mountain needs to come to an end. In fact, it’s this time of year when the chances of scoring your favorite runs uncrowded are heightened – thanks to the exhausted and Spring-ready die-hard ski crowd. Nevertheless, at the right elevation, the cold snap continues, snow keeps falling, and high-quality Alpine gear is a must-have.

Which is precisely why we decided to put together this particular style guide this late in the season. From a stylish Anorak to reliable ski pants to gear that will look and play the part both on top of the mountain and at the ski lodge, we’ve compiled a list of essentials to keep you warm and looking sharp through the tail end of the ski season.

Alps & Meters Touring Oxford

Modeled after the smart wardrobes of the 30s, 40s, and 50s, this Touring Oxford functions as both a comfortable mid-layer or a cabin-friendly outer layer after a long day on the mountain.

Purchase: $220

Alps & Meters Classic Pom Hat

Keeping the head covered during those colder days is key to keeping warm. With that in mind, this 100% Lambswool Classic Pom Hat is an ideal piece for life in the alpine landscape.

Purchase: $85

Patagonia Simul Alpine Pants

Durable, stretchy, and breathable, these water-resistant ski pants are a prime example of both on and off mountain style. They feature an articulated pattern and gusseted crotch to enhance movement, a separating zip fly, and an adjustable single cuff and tie-down loops making them compatible with alpine boots.

Purchase: $139

Hestra Fall Line Glove

Here’s a serious pair of alpine performance gloves suited for any time of year. Each pair of Hestra Fall Line Gloves boasts a cowhide outer, foam insulation for enhanced warmth, and a neoprene cuff to keep the warmth inside.

Purchase: $150

Oliver Spencer William Sunglasses

Catching the sun’s rays from both angles can be damaging to the eyes while on the mountain. That being said, a reliable pair of shades is necessary. So, for both style and utility, this pair from Oliver Peoples certainly delivers the goods – inspired by old-school doctors opticals.

Purchase: $300

Danner Ridge Boots

Built right here in the USA at their Portland factory, the Dinner Ridge boots are equipped to be both lightweight and versatile in nature – complete with an updated construction and a low profile Vibram outsole.

Purchase: $360

Suunto Traverse Alpha

While skiing, a sense of direction is imperative especially when conditions get a little sketchy. Which is why Suunto builds this durable GPS/GLONASS watch that’s positioned to serve as your guide no matter where the run may lead.

Purchase: $499

Alps & Meters Alpine Anorak

Built with fortified British Millerain Chera 8 waxed canvas, the Alps & Meters Alpine Anorak offers both protection on the mountain and a classic throwback style worth remembering.

Purchase: $695
