for the record i wear a blue pants and a snake skin print jacket because a)nobody else has it and it distinguishes me from the crowd for friends, and b) it stands out from snow.
This.

I used to wear a white SB jacket, khaki SB pants, white helmet, white goggles. Once you realize you are invisible you feel like someone is going to t-bone you. Not to mention I spend most of my time in the sketchiest parts of the mountain...and would be screwed if I got hurt there.
