Columba Arcadia Rain Jacket

Would this jacket work for skiing?

Hey Irene - it could work with an insulating layer underneath but it is a much thinner shell than a dedicated ski shell so you probably would be better off choosing a jacket intended for skiing. A rain shell will flap around a lot in the wind and could rip with repeated use as a ski shell. If you're headed out for your first day on the hill and don't want a ski jacket, I'm sure this could get you by with a fleece or down layer underneath, but if you ski regularly at all this isn't the best choice.
