The snow is falling, the fire is crackling and jackets are coming out of hibernation. Zipped up in L.L. Bean winter gear, people head outside for winter fun: snowball fights, snowshoeing, snowboarding, even skiing with the U.S. Ski Team. As the official supplier of the US Ski and Snowboard Association, L.L. Bean also provides branded gear for members of the team as they suit up and hit the slopes.
