Default How many layers?

I usually snowboard in spring but this year we're going up to tahoe next monday and will be there til sunday. I plan on wearing my shell but I don't know what to wear under. I was thinking my under armor(thermal), sweater, and maybe a t-shirt. Would this keep me warm enough on a 25-35 degree day with a chance of snow?

-Thanks

Your underarmour+t-shirt+light hoodie or sweater+shell would be a good combo for that temperature range. Usually I board around 25-30 temp and I wear 1 long sleeve shirt, 1 tshirt, hoodie, and my shell. Works perfect for me. Never too hot or cold. I think if you wear any more than that you'll be too hot.

I was in that exact temp today and was perfectly happy in my Target bought Champion base layer top and bottom with my shells. Even had my helmet vents open most of the time. If I had worn anymore I would have been over heating. Everybody is different. Just remember to never wear cotton on the hill.

Ahh okay perfect. My only concern was being cold on the chairlift but it's good to know I have enough layers. Thank you both

-10 - 0 Celcius (I only know 0 is 30 or 32 F) I wear only a base layer (thermal), t-shirt, and shell. For pants, base layer and shell pant.

True, but most of the time it's only when it's windy.

3 layers...if it's under 25 degrees

Baselayer...like the dakine merino wool or UA 3.0 cold gear

Fleece mid layer...like the Northface Denali and UA coldgear mid layer pant.

Shell outerwear...your snowboard pants and jacket.

This combo is perfect on all cold and windy days.
