“Why would I ski in a dress ?”
You certainly don’t need one, but you might want to give it a try it. Here are a few reasons why:
1. It stays tucked in.
Seriously! It never comes untucked from my snowpants – even when skinning with a backpack – yet doesn't add extra bulk. It's a simple solution to keeping the powder off your tummy and back skin when the landing from your epic cliff drop doesn't go 100% ...o r when you catch an edge and have a little yard sale.
2. It dries the fastest (and doesn't stink!).
I don't know what it is about this particular polyester and spandex blend, but it's the only thing I've found that I can completely soak in sweat on the uphill and will still dry out under the layers that I immediately throw on at the summit. A Nuu-Muu with a Valleau bra are the only baselayers I wear for backcountry skiing , and these 2 products were game changers for me. Remember, cotton is rotten!
3. The pockets.
That's right, there are pockets. The Ruu-Muu and Scoop versions of this dress come with 2 sneaky pockets right at the base of your back, and they don't have obnoxious zippers that dig into you . Can't feel em if they're empty, but can fit any of your smallish items back there. Say, perhaps, a can of beer in each? ( tested and proven)
Pro tip: put a hand warmer or two in the back pockets for instant heat at your core.
4. The protection when you pee.
Know how cold and exposed your back end can feel when nature calls and you're out in nature? The length of a Nuu-Muu gives you just a smidgeon more coverage - front and back – when you drop trou .
5. The apres -ski versatility.
Wanna go grab a drink with friends after a day on the slopes? Need to snag some groceries or hustle to your kiddo's recital? You can stay in full ski gear until you get home, or your Nuu-Muu can give you the choice to leave your adventure drenched snowpants in the car, and not give your threadbare longjohns a second thought. No need to bring a change of clothes for post powder play – Nuu-Muu's got you and your toosh ie covered.
For me, it's not so much being able to say or show that I'm skiing in a dress - though that element can be fun too. Why I wear a Nuu-Muu every time I ski boils down to one main reason: they're so d a r n functional.
