Spring Skiing at Squaw Valley

Spring skiing is officially upon us at the Spring Skiing Capital, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. The perfect California spring ski day? Early morning corduroy runs, a quick bite to eat on the Gold Coast deck, slushing your way through the spring corn in the afternoon, and sunning yourself at the KT Base bar while you apres.

With warmer weather, longer days, and the occasional spring storm (I’ll take some more powder days), I’ve found light layering is the best way to stay comfortable while skiing. Early morning temperatures are still on the chilly side, but by the afternoon it can feel like you’re ready to head to the High Camp Pool! The European company Ortovox designs clothing and outdoor gear dedicated to backcountry skiing and outdoor activities. They have a wonderful selection of layering pieces for our fickle spring weather. Ortovox combines Swiss wool and fleece for a warm, lightweight, and durable material. The Ortovox Zebru Jacket is a lightweight yet warm, wind and water-resistant piece that is perfect on it’s own for April mornings, or underneath the Ortovox Ortler Shell Jacket on storm days. Pair the Zebru jacket with a light moisture wicking base layer top, like the Mons Royale Alta Tech Crew for men, or the Spyder Solitude Funnel in coral for a pop of color for women. Finish off your outfit with the Ortovox Ortler Shell Pant and Flylow Shreggings base layer pants for women or Helly Hansen Lifa Dry for man, and you have the perfect combination for a great day of spring skiing! And don’t forget to check out our new arrivals of Smith and Ray-Ban sunglasses to even out your goggle tan!

Trendspotting with PlumpJackSport's Meg Millar

Message from Meg
Every year I look forward to my time at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver where a close community of buyers, suppliers and athletes come together to share new ideas and unite as a powerful advocate for environmental issues and the protection of public lands. This was my 12th year at the Ski tradeshow and I love viewing the latest in ski and snow apparel for the following season. Some of my favorite brands including SOS Sportswear, Bogner, Toni Sailer, JCC for Rosignol did not disappoint. These brands are some of the most innovative and fashion-forward technical ski brands, and I feel so lucky that we are one of the exclusive retailers in North Lake Tahoe to carry these lines. I also had the chance to check out some new brands that we’ll be introducing to the store next winter. Check out my picks below

Here are the trends I am most excited about

  • One pieces are back! Keep your eye out for JCC and Bogner next winter.

  • We’re seeing a lot of great pops of yellow, like the marigold yellow from Bogner’s one-piece and the bright sporty yellow in JCC.

  • Stretch pants are also making a comeback with great stretch and fun colors. The shop favorite remains Erin Snow Phia Pant and the Toni Sailer Alla Pant.

New brands coming to PlumpJackSport next winter

  • GOGO Sweaters – I really fell in love with these chunky POP handknit sweaters from Canada. They are a great cozy addition to the wardrobe.

  • Almgwand – these fun and inspired ski sweaters from Austria will compliment our current, popular AlpNRock line.

  • Goldbergh – a new luxury sportswear collection that emphasizes trendy and bold, yet technical. They also have an incredible one-piece suit by Pucci that I predict will be the hottest in holiday fashion next season. The best part, PlumpJackSport will be the first retailer to carry the line in California.
