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."
