One more question... do I need to buy anything special for the layer beneath the jacket? Or will a normal jumper be enough? :P

What is better: separate jackets and pants or one-piecers?

One-piece suits. But only if you look like this:



I personally think one-piece suits are completely ridiculous. Nothing screams yuppy like a one-sy, especially around the resort.

I bought my first volcom jacket recently because it was last seasons and it was on sale ($200). I bought the Landvick TDS jacket and it seems like it's a pretty good jacket for really cold weather. It's light and has goretex as well has some insulation without being too bulky. Lots of great features with that jacket.

That's not me, I just saw this suit in one group in social network and think it looks nice. I mean not the pattern but how it fits that girl. Looks comfortable and cute.

It all depends on the temperatures. For me personally this is how I break it down for varying temperatures

<23F: gortex shell, light down midlayer (patagonia nano puff), shirt, thermal (ninja suit)
23-30F: gortex shell, polyester hoody, t-shirt, thermal (ninja suit)
>30F: gortex shell, t-shirt, thermal (ninja suit)
For the bottom half I usually just wear shorts over my ninja suit but if it's really cold I wear a fleece long sleeve.

A nice thermal goes a long way. You just need to layer up according to the temperatures, nothing special is really needed. Once you get experience you'll start to get an idea of what layers feel right to you. Just don't wear cotton clothing because it retains moisture.
