Default powder skirt proper way?

I usually wrap the powder skirt of my ski jacket over my ski pants. But once I fall the powder skirt is pulled back and powder gets into my back.

Should I tuck the powder skirt into my pants? but will this lead to the entering of snow into my pants?

This is exactly why jacket to pants connections come on most outer wear. On my Special Blend stuff it is 4 large snaps around the waist that keep the skirt in place. On my Burton stuff it is a zipper across the back.

What gear do you have?

^ that only works if you have the same brand top and bottoms, otherwise I just tuck it into my pants because in deep powder snow mostly goes up my back not down my pants. The only time it goes in my pants is if I land upside down which is rare.

Sounds like you may need better gear. Most new snowboarding specific outterwear have a pants to jacket interface so no pow gets up there and you don't have to mess with it every few minutes. My volcom stuff zips together so I may as well be wearing a one piece snowsuit.

Probably because your tops and bottoms are both Volcom, otherwise you got lucky... I have $250 686 pants and a $300 Burton jacket that don't fit together.

Yeah, that's why I buy matching gear. Sucks to be tied to a brand but at least they work together.

I have a Volcom Jacket that attached perfectly to my 686 pants (3 snaps: 2 side 1 back). Although, after a few hard crashes i ripped the snaps off the jacket lol. I just got lucky with them working together, i need to buy new gear but cant decide on what i want lol.

The skirt on my Burton jacket also has two snap loops to attach the skirt to the belt loops of any pants.

When the snow is deep enough for it to matter I'm having way too much fun to care.
