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!
