Yes, you can wear leggings as under-layers when you ski. In fact, leggings are a great option for under-layers because they are slim fitting and won’t add bulk under your ski pants. Just make sure that the leggings are made from a moisture-wicking material, as this will help keep your skin dry and comfortable while you’re on the slopes.
You should also consider the thickness of the leggings and choose a pair that will provide enough warmth without adding too much bulk. It’s generally best to wear 3/4 length leggings or roll up your leggings above your ski boots, rather than under your ski boots. This will help keep your legs warm and insulated, and will also prevent the leggings from bunching up or becoming uncomfortable while you’re wearing your ski boots. If you do decide to wear your leggings under your ski boots, you’ll need to make sure that they are thin enough to fit comfortably inside your boots without causing any discomfort or irritation. If your leggings are causing issues in your ski boots, adjust or change your leggings not your ski boots.
