A. Salopettes, or ski pants/trousers as they are also known, are designed to keep you warm, dry and comfortable on the slopes. They are usually made with waterproof or water resistant fabric and have a cosy thermal lining; some are also breathable to ensure you maintain the right body temperature. The loose fit gives freedom of movement that you would not normally get with other trousers.
Q. Why wear salopettes when skiing?
