    Women's Top Step Side-Zip Insulated Ski Pants

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side-zip ski pant, like every product we make, has a frustrated athlete with a story to tell behind them.

    Founder note: It was possibly the worst ski day of my life. A cold, windy Carnival at Burke in early February, starting last due to a hike. I was trying to get my pants on over my suit and fumbling for minutes (it seemed like hours) due to the snow having caked the zippers, icing them over rendering them useless, and virtually making it impossible to connect the sides together. Completely freezing in the howling wind, I had to take my gloves off (instant frostbite) to try and warm the zipper up and melt the snow, just to "put my diaper on." I figured there had to be a better way, which lead to the 3/4 Step-Through construction being born. No more fumbling with zippers. Step, step, zip, zip, and off you go.

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side zip ski pants features our 3/4 Step-Through construction design. By using a robust zipper that zips just short of the waistband, racers don’t have to try to connect the zipper at the top, you just step right into the pant, and zip down. The zipper itself is a nice large gauge so you can do it all with your gloves on, no hassle and no frostbit fingers.

    3/4 Step-Through construction has been leaned on heavily by athletes who wear a knee brace because you can easily zip up from the bottom with your boots on and adjust your brace as needed. 

    Additionally, for those who aren't necessarily racing, and get hot easy. The unique side-zip construction makes it simple and easy to vent, so you can dump the extra heat on the chairlift after a top to bottom Outer LImits lap on a sunny mid-March day. Heat regulation is an important part of having a great day on the ski hill and these pants give you the ability to adjust throughout the day. 


    Skiing’s cold, and once you get cold, it can be mentally consuming and hard to warm back up. Once you're cold, your performance suffers. If you made the flip or are looking to score, you want to be immediately warming back up for the second run. The top step pant is designed to warm you up quickly so you can immediately start recovery, and think about and your plan for the next run.


    Made with a comfortable athletic fit, premium technical materials, just the right amount of insulation so you feel the warmth immediately, a variety of color choices and plenty of pockets, the Top-Step side zip pant is the perfect workhorse pant for everyday skiing.

    Best pants on the market - just the front zipper could be a little tougher

    My kids have raced for 10+ years. We have purchased many full side zip pants over time. Sync's pants are thicker & warmer. They wash well and the material is high quality. The company ships quickly. The side zippers hold up well and the step in design works so much better than the full zips. The side zippers and zipper pulls have held up through busy seasons. They fit true to size and the back size adjustment in the waist works great. Two of the four pair we have purchased have had the front fly zipper become totally mangled in a season's use since this zipper is a little less hearty than the side zips. That would be my one concern.

    Hi L.B!

    Thank you for your review! As a growing company we appreciate any feedback regarding our product and we are sorry to hear that the front zipper has not been working as it should. We appreciate you for taking the time out of your day to write this review and expressing your concern.

    5 stars for fit and the full side zip for my knee brace

    I teach, today I am at 73 days plus a couple more for xcountry and snow shoeing. Needless to say my ski pants get use. When my ski pants are washed I use a tech wash to prolong waterproofing and color. I noticed that after multiple deep powder snow days a few tiny slices from my skis on the bottom of the pant leg. I guess it’s wear and tear.

    Hi Suzanne!

    Thank you for your review! Those little cuts are common especially when you are getting big angles! If it ever gets worse, please don't hesitate to reach out to Thanks for being stoked on SYNC!

    Best Race Pants out there!

    These pants are excellent quality, and the side zipper is super nice for stripped runs. They do run on the tighter size, so if you want them a little looser, I would recommend sizing up.

    Womens ski pants

    I purchased sync ski pants for girlfriend 5 years ago. Unfortunately the new edition of the pants changed so much they needed to be returned. The new leg pocket made the fit to tight in the legs and there was too much fabric in the belly area. Change isn’t always a good thing.

    Great fit and function

    My daughter is so happy with these. Great fit, keeps her warm, but light and comfy - and she didn’t even get wet in the Pouring rain! (PNW skiing!).
