Default Gearing up for Big Sky.

I'm starting to look at gear to protect me from the winter at Big Sky, MT. I'm not sure on all the weights for pants/jackets and what companies make a quality product. Right now I have a Special Blend Snow Patrol jacket will I want something thicker than this? Also would it be worth looking into a gore-tex jacket or is it unnecessary? My jacket has yet to get wet or freeze up on me. I do want a compatible snap waist gator thing with pants to jacket.

Also I want to get a few pair of gloves. Which companies/models should I look at? I'm also thinking maybe some with the removable lining so I still have something covering my hand if I need to change ipod or fiddle with something else.

Any other advice on base layers/mid-layers ect ect. I'm all ears. Pretty nervous to freeze my ass off up their some days from the wind. So any advice would be great!
