Leftover Yam Jam fashion: skiers and snowboarders face off
Amber Parnow, 24, skier
"I'm wearing a Saga jacket and Sessions pants. I mainly look for clothes that are comfortable. I like them steezy, too. Skier fashion with the whole tight pants needs to die. Black is the new neon."
Melissa Riitano, 19, snowboarder
"I like Volcom clothing. It's really comfortable. I love Bern helmets -- it's fashionable to keep your noggin safe. It's sexy, too. I think snowboards rocking leather jackets and jeans is a lame trend. I want to see more creative styles without looking too forced."
Mike Perle, 16, snowboarder
"I like Volcom because they are the biggest company. I also like Quiksilver. Tight pants and tall tees need to go -- I like normal clothing on skiers and riders."
Andy Harris, 22, snowboarder
"I'm wearing Tech Nine. I like big clothes and like to look like a gansta. I think your gear needs to be steezy."
Xylo Stewart, 21, Skier
"I'm rocking a Salomon piece -- I got a killer deal on it, and I look pretty pimp in it, too. I think skiers should stop skiing like park rats and learn to carve. I also think more people should be hiking to earn their turns."
Forrest Miller, 22, snowboarder
"I'm wearing an Analog jacket with a Grateful Dead theme and Bonfire pants. I like anything nobody else has got; I like to keep it original. I hate tight pants and jeans. I like it baggy and comfortable.
Parks Thompson, 23, skier
"I like clothes a little baggy, but classy, too -- that's why I have a Ralph Lauren Polo vest and Sessions pants. I like the smaller companies, but want to see classic brands like Atomic make a comeback."
Sarah Downey, 21, snowboarder
"I have Nikkita pants, a Burton jacket and Vans boots. I like something that fits, is comfortable and looks good. The mustache needs to die; my friend looks like a child molester. Chick pants on dudes need to go away, too. I'd like to see more classic '80s-style one-pieces on the slopes."
