Cyfer Recently I've been using Under-Armour outer wear for those days in the single digits or lower. I have to say I'm TOTALLY impressed with the current kit for those days it's so cold on the East (Ice) Coast that it cracks ice.

UA Sonic Jacket (light weight and super warm)
UA Flow Pants (The lightest warmest pants I've ever worn!)

*for super cold days*
UA Dervous Fleece Jacket
UA Hudo Fleece Pants
*underneath the outerwear for extra warmth*

First layers depend on how cold it is
UA Evo upper and lowers
UA Cold Gear 2.0 upper and lowers (so cold you want to cry)

As of right now this is the warmest I've worn blows TNF and Burton AK away, lighter than both and just as warm. So far I've been in these on days that range from 1 degree to -18 and I've never been cold on the lift or on the hill. If you've got an Under-Armour outlet near you it's easy to pick these up for a steal in the off season. I spent almost half sticker price around August. Right now you can get most Under-Armour outer wear for less than most other brands that cost twice as much. I have to say I've got no complaints about any of this gear. Check it out and give this gear a try you'll find it pretty warm.

On a side note I'm on Blood Thinners for life so I get colder a lot quicker than most people. If this stuff didn't work I would be the first to say it. Most times I rock Analog gear due to the street style influence and such but when it's so cold most people run for the lodge I've spent hours outside in my Under-Armour gear without ever being cold.

  • TNF Shell
  • t3 base layer on the bottom and sometimes an extra set of tech shorts underneath
  • Pants (mt. hardware)
  • Mittens w. fleece liners (OR)

I basically use a combo like this with a different level baselayer depending upon how cold. Sometimes I go fleece vest versus nano puff, and I have a puff mid-layer jacket but tried wearing it once and it was too warm.
Where did you find the fleece liners? Im looking for something thicker than my thin warm weather inner liners with my OR mittens

Layer after layer

My cheap shit has no name or model
Feet: sock liner , sock , M4 hotronic foot warmer
Pants: Quicksilver pants, fleece pajama type pants, tighter fleece under layer basic thermal long John, base layer , exoffico

Top:quicksilver10,000 jacket with magnet instead of Velcro shell, light jacket, acrylic poly blend long sleeve, long sleeve base layer, long sleeveless basketball shirt , base layer tee shirt.

Hand : swany toaster leather mittens, with liners, hand warmers
Neck and head: neck gator, fleece balaclava, scarf, fleece ninja hood thing, hat with mask, helmet

I've only used all these layers twice , one blue jay day in vail and one storm at mammoth. The mammoth storm was epic no one was out on a weekend. First time I saw them running the cats on the runs all day. It was fresh tracks every run , the seven layers were worth it.

I could probably buy warmer stuff but layers also add to my cushion

What to wear on cold days

Awesome photo dude. Might keep this in mind when I get into the later years, thankfully I got a long way to go though.

Yeah I was looking at the Canadian Cartel stuff unfortunately they didn't have the one thing I wanted which was pants!

I used to play in the park at Blue Mountain all the time, and I'd fall and get right back up again. I bruised my tailbone once and that had me off my board for a few days when I was 16, but otherwise it seemed like nothing really hurt!

Now I'm bigger, heavier, and more brittle, and after paying $1000+ for a season pass each year I want my moneys worth. So if armor keeps me on the slopes then it's worth it to me...

The only area I sweat in it is the spine protector area... That's why I wear a spring jacket now unless it's -10 C or colder. The base layer under it does get STINKY!!!
