If you're a serious snow sport enthusiast looking for outerwear, there is no substitute for GOR-TEX.  Most of the major manufacturers make a line that incorporates this wonder material. Yes, it is more expensive than alternative materials and is usually only incorporated into the higher end apparel, however, as the old adage goes "You Get what you pay for," and in this case it is absolutely true.  I've been skiing for 26 years and have tried my fair share of outerwear, but a couple of years ago I bought my first GOR-TEX jacket, and I'll never go back!  It's light, tough, waterproof, and best of all, it breathes.  With the right layering system underneath, you stay warm and dry all day long!
