Nils Ski and Snowboard Apparel for Women 2016/2017

Full Disclosure

I’ve been a Nils’ athlete ambassador for several years. This means I have a natural bias toward their clothing, but it also means that I have a lot of first-hand experience with their products.

Each season I pick my favorite outfit or two from Nils, and it arrives in time for skiing, like an early Christmas present. I wear the Nils gear, giving it exposure on the mountain and in social media. I provide feedback about the clothing to Nils, and I provide descriptions and reviews about the products on jans.com.

“Nils women’s ski and snowboard apparel is the full package, everything I want in my ski clothing. It is beautiful, comfortable, high-performing, flattering, and thoughtfully designed.”

Having written around a bazillion product descriptions in my writing career thus far, I know how to find the good in a product, even if I personally don’t love every aspect of it. For example, if the colors or design of a piece of clothing aren’t exactly my taste, I can still describe the sheer joy you’ll experience carving down a perfect ski slope on a sunny day while wearing it. With Nils, however, I never have that issue.

Designed for Women

Focusing on women’s ski and snowboard apparel allows Nils to really hone in on women’s fashion and a women’s-specific fit. Because they know that women come in so many different shapes and sizes, with so many different style preferences, they design their products accordingly.

Nils offers several different collections that cater to different customers. Their Slopeside collection features on-trend looks that transition easily between mountain and town, while their NS20 line focuses on technical pieces with sporty looks. The Simplexity collection combines super technical performance and an elegant appearance with a strong slope and city appeal, while their Winter Garden line offers a lovely high-end fashion feel.

What’s New and Exciting This Season

Technical performance and feminine fit are the norm for Nils. They have that figured out. But the styles evolve each season.

A new Velocity print graces the Nils 2016-2017 offering, covering items like technical baselayers, soft, stretch-knit sweaters, accessories, and eye-catching outerwear. It’s unique and stylish, with a nod to the popular Chevron print trend. However, Nils goes beyond the trend, by making the Velocity print more delicate and sophisticated.

You can see the Velocity print most clearly on the Brooklyn baselayer top, which is a Nils classic because of its soft, smooth feel and its moisture-managing performance. This pattern also shows up in side panels and hood details on the Dakota Special Edition jacket.


Like many other Simplexity pieces, the Cheri jacket features sleek lines with great details such as sparkly hardware and an embroidered logo with tiny crystal accents.

The Dominique pant is insulated and stretchy, with a slim fit and moto-inspired stitching at the knees. It has been one of my favorites for years, and this season I had to have the bright ‘Cherry’ color.

“The Jans flagship Park Avenue location is the #1 Nils pant fit center in the state of Utah… We get that there is a reason why Nils makes so many different styles of ski pants in so many different sizes. We carry everything from petite sizes to long and short lengths, adjustable waists and hems, and stretch fits.”

The expert buyers at Jans know that Nils is a high-quality ski apparel brand with a great fit for women. That’s why they order a wide variety of Nils ski wear and mountain lifestyle clothing and accessories to have available for our customers.

In fact, the Jans flagship Park Avenue location is the #1 Nils pant fit center in the state of Utah.
