One thing I have found in my time is that over insulating the parts of you that are ok in cold really helps the parts that are hard to keep warm. My hands tend to get cold. Even though my torso or arms are never cold I started wearing another layer there. By basically over heating my torso and arms I forced my body to use my hands as heatsinks. The result is warmer hands.

For the OP i would suggest another layer on her legs. Since they are the main source of heat while riding it will cause you to get hotter by the end of the run. As long as you aren't pouring sweat it is a good thing to be a little too hot by the end of the run. Then you use the lift ride to cool off for the next run.
