Nike may have gotten out of the ski apparel business, but H&M sees winter wear as an opportunity. Glamour reports that the Swedish fast fashion retailer just released an active winter wear collection. According to the magazine, H&M's new line uses water-repellant, waterproof, and windproof fabrics. And with prices like $99 for a ski jacket, $69.95 for snow pants, and $34.95 for a padded vest, your excuse for not going on that ski trip might've gone out the window.
