pretty much the same thing every time. if its above freezing Ill take off the fleece. If its extra cold and windy, Ill wear a heavier fleece. never wear anything on the face. I beleive its a mental thing and once you develop a tollerance for the cold wind you are good. The coldest, windiest conditions excluded.
If you are cold, start using doing something to get your blood flowing.

You could flip it on for the ride up the lift and then turn it off after you reach the top.
I've never used the battery powered liners, so I don't know how quickly they heat up.
Their motorcycle jackets and liners work great, though.

No clothing advice here.
Eat something sugary (chocolate, cookie, muffin,etc) or something high in calorific value. It will help balance your body's temperature and you'll be more capable to tolerate the cold.

I wear REI base layers usually, and Capilene when it's really cold. My favorite mid layer is Polartec Powerstretch. That stuff is warm. I just got a synthetic insulated jacket from GoLite that I'll add for really cold days (like 0F and colder) when I'm standing around a lot. I wear a cheap fleece vest from Old Navy sometimes too.
My fingers and toes are the really important parts for me, though. I'll wear three layers on both my hands and feet when it's really cold (Smartwool liner socks and gloves, OR shell mittens with fleece liners, Smartwool PhD snowboarding socks, and my boots), and always have a few packs of handwarmers with me. Keeping my head warm when it's windy is crucial, too. I'll even wear my big MH Dome Perignon hat over a balaclava or thin beanie if I need to. That's right, two hats. I can't hear a thing but I'm warm, darn it.

I live and die by my under armor here in the easy coast. Full leggings and long sleeve top. Sweats and a T shirt over that and jacket and pants.
For the face im usually in my underarmor face mask, bandana over that for bombs or the lift and my helmet. Google over or under depending on the helmet.
Burton Gortex gloves and underarmor linings for the cold days.
Oh and hybrid mix of socks. Just not 100% cotton

-Long sleeve shirt
-Thermal long sleeve shirt ontop of regular shirt
-Turtle Fur - Shellaclava (HIGHLY recommend this... its like a circular fleece scarf... it doesn't have ends... and it keeps my neck and face so warm)
-SOMEtimes a beanie under my helmet if it's really cold
-Nike waterproof mittens

I just got my [almost] brand new fancy Volcom jacket in that I bought off craigslist, It's a nice 3 layer goretex jacket but the damn thing only has two chest pockets, thats it. I'm in shock.
I still like it, but i'm used to putting all kinds of shit in my coat pockets
