posted in: Blog, Gear Reviews | 241

It’s Spring and you’re in Jackson Hole---The weather is temperamental, to say the least! Skinny Skis would like to introduce you to your new favorite piece of clothing---the Alpine Houdini Jacket from Patagonia. This ultra light (5.6 oz.!) shell is just the ticket---Not too big and bulky, but not a wimp either. Just right! Alpine ascents---trail running---fast hiking (or not-too-fast)—the Alpine Houdini can be thrown in your pack---not take up half the space—and be there when you need it…And, yes, you probably will!
