Could it be possible to use this jacket...

Could it be possible to use this jacket for a ski jacket? Of course I would wear a fleece or something else underneath to keep me warm. But is the jacket strong enough to keep so much water and snow outside? :)

The Arc'teryx Alpha SL could be used as a ski jacket. It will keep you dry and block the wind. If you'll be skiing a lot of days, you may want a jacket with a more durable fabric. This Gore Paclite is designed for maximum pack-ability, and trades super tough face fabric, and inside backer material, to accomplish this. I've used mine as a compliment to a softshell for an added layer in really harsh conditions, but for skiing resort days, I'd recommend the Beta AR, Sidewinder, or Stingray from Arc'teryx.
