Default proper layering for vail?

i know this sounds dumb but i had no idea what to search for but im goin to vail next week and im not use to snowboarding in really cold weather. i have some type of UA base layer, not sure which one, its just under armor, snowboard socks, burton ronin roper pants, and comumbia jacket with removable liner. what kind of shirt do i need to wear over the UA base and what about pants? should i wear something inbetween the UA and burton pants? i didnt know if i would burn up if i did or if i would freeze if i didnt. im use to snowboarding when its about 50 and all i wear is UA shorts, my socks, burton pants, t shirt and windbreaker.

Depends on your jacket Is it lined or a shell. I use a base layer, then a hoodie/pull over then my shell jacket. UA hood for my neck and head then my helmet. Nice and warm. Base layer bottoms and my board pants. UA socks for the feet. UA liner gloves and my main gloves. If need be I can remove a layer.

Cheers

I have never been to vail, but I have boarded and done other activities in cold weather, in a low as -5degrees f As long as you have synthetic base layer and a water proof shell, middle layer can be just about anything. Fleece is a good insulating layer, cotton would work to if that is what you have, given base layer is synthetic. I would bring options, you don't want to get too hot, that synthetic layer can still become saturated, if that happens your hosed as you know.

Whenever i go boarding in really cold weather, i put on UA Coldgear base, quality fleece, and then my pants and jacket. It has always kept me warm and dry. I go to Hokkaido every winter and weather there is anywhere from -10C - -30C.

Never been to paoli. I go to perfect north. Everyone says Paoli isn't worth the trip. My name is Chris.. Glad to see I am not the only ky snowboarder on this forum. What hill do you go to?
