When you're done skiing for the day and all you want to do is get warm and relax.

You can divide a successful ski day into two equally important parts: skiing and après-ski. Your attire for the après portion of your ski day is just as crucial as the shell you wear on the mountain. You’re going to want to slip into the softest, most comfortable sweatpants known to man. There are lots of options out there, so we’ve picked five of our favorite men’s sweatpants based on personal testing and online reviews.

Stoic Sherpa-Lined Sweatpants ($33)

These sweatpants are all about the plush fleece lining, which takes lounging capabilities to another level. Tapered cuffs keep you stylish when you have to run out for more beer, but really, it’s all about that fleece.

The low-profile fit of these pants make them ideal for layering during adventurous pursuits on the coldest days, but the velour fleece gives them a next-to-skin softness that screams naptime. Zippered pockets keep your cellphone in place when you’re totally horizontal.
