My 8 Fave Winter Boots from Sierra Trading Post

Sierra Trading Post has long been one of my go-to’s for discount outdoor clothes and accessories. Gotta scratch the never-ending itch for outdoor gear! Growing up, I looked forward to getting their small black and white magazine in the mail. It was printed on newspaper and had drawings instead of photographs, if you can believe it. Those were the days.

Currently they have an awesome selection of winter boots on their website and I wanted to share my favorites. I don’t know about you, but each time this time of year rolls around, I’m wishing for a mountain vacay.

This post is sponsored, but all comments and opinions are my own.

Santana Claudina Snow boot

These boots top my list. I LOVE the laces and shearling, and they solve one of the quandaries I always have when on a ski trip: What do I wear on my feet if we dress up and go to a nice dinner?!

These also can be worn casual with jeans or après-ski. Versatile, stylish winner.


Kamik Scarlet 3

Another option that would be great for a night out on a ski trip, these Kamik boots are cute and super reasonable at only $79.99.


Santana Myra Snow Boot

These have the best faux fur of all the ones on this list! I love how casual they are too, perfect for laid back mountain towns and chilly days at home.



Kodiak Skyla Leather Pac boots

Have you seen The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds? These boots remind me of some she wore in that movie. Obviously, if they’re good enough for Sandra they’re good enough for me and I think this look is classic.


Real leather, wool, and suede for only $119.99.

Bearpaw Bethany Snow boot

Love the green and brown combo here and these are cheap! Only $59.99.


Aquatherm Wide Calf Boots

I’m a wide calf girl so these were a necessity for the list.


Also very reasonable – $69.99.


Henri Pierre Jaki boots

Can’t beat a classic navy suede.




Santana Canada Melita boot

These would look SO cute with a white or grey ski jacket!




Hope you found something you love and that the next time you wear them, you are on a sunny slope in a beautiful mountain scene!

Merry Christmas and happy shopping. 🙂

I couldn’t help myself when I saw this pink ski jacket. I love it! Pink-on-black makes for a cute ski outfit and I would love to wear this in the mountains.

Slope Style: Best Baselayers

Funny thing, I used to hate skiing. But, over time, I started to eliminate the reasons I hated it–I figured out how to stay warm, I forced myself down green runs enough times to feel confident, and I figured out how to turn without falling. Most of the time. Hehe. I also discovered that I loved being in the mountains in winter.

In this process, I tried out a number of clothing items to keep me comfortable, from microfiber to wool. I sweated and froze and eventually landed on this list. I love this stuff!


Simply the best! You will need:

FFF - Ski Combo 3 - Baselayers - Smartwool, $94, $25, $94

SmartWool keeps you warm, stretches and conforms to your shape, and doesn’t absorb odors.  It’s so comfortable that I don’t want to take it off after skiing…kind of like ski and apres-ski all in one! The midweight shirt I’ve linked to here is my favorite, and is thick enough to be worn as a winter shirt.

Turtle Fur Comfort Shell Fleece Neckula, $20

A fleece neck gaiter with a waterproof shell, which keeps out moisture and keeps you warm. Turtle Fur is the softest. What’s the difference between this and a regular neck warmer? One way to find out is on the top of a mountain when it’s -8 degrees, but I don’t recommend that!

Black goes with everything but these neckulas can be found at ski shops in the mountains in more fun patterns.

Swany Mittens, $134

I give these mittens a thumbs up. (Haha, get it?!)

After dropping my old purple glove off a lift recently, on a day that was in single digits, I needed to replace it asap. We stopped in a shop and my friend suggested the Swany Men’s X-Cell 2 Mitt for $134. A men’s glove?! For my delicate little hand? And it’s $134?!  But, I was cold and my husband wasn’t watching, so I bought them. I’m so glad I did. My fingers were warmer than they had ever been on a mountain and I found the gloves had lots of convenient bells and whistles.  To name a few…

  • T shaped drawstring makes adjusting the wrist straps easy when your other hand is in the mitten
  • Pocket for hand warmer
  • Wrist loops to keep the glove from falling off…clearly I need that
  • Buckle to keep them together when not in use

Best ski gear investment yet.

That’s a wrap. I hope you have many happy and warm ski trips in your future and enjoy this gear as much as I have.
