Help with clothes

Hey guys ive been snowboarding a couple times before in colorado and california but this time I'm just going to go to Wisconsin this Monday. I had a jacket before and it worked....until it ripped and stoped fitting me

Well I need to know what to wear this time without the stuff that fit me when I was 11 and I'm 14 now.
Right Jim I'm going to wear

under armor pants (maybe)
Jeans Or sweatpants(which one is better)
Snow pants

Top
-------
tee shirt
Sweat shirt kinda thing thats really warm( this would be fine if it was waterproof)
???? For waterproofing

This year I haven't gotten a new jacket ive just wore hoodies so I don't have a jacket and all of my dads coats are to big.

Thanks everyone!

Oh and forgot to say it's supposed to be 30-32 degrees. Also my mom said that we might be able to buy a jacket but where should I go if I can't get it online? Any good brands that might be there? Again thanks!

If you are just 14 your probably still growing, I am not sure if you have these stores in the States but up in Canada we have a chain called Winners. They normally sell name brand clothes for 1/2 the price because they are last seasons styles. A store like this would be good for a growing guy such as your self. You do not want to spend to much on clothes that may not fit you next year. Under armor pants if you own them would be better then Jeans and sweat pants as they probably would wick away sweat. Plus your snow pants of course.

As for your upper body I would say a base layer that wicks sweat. Anything that is made for running would do this, then a mid layer (gogle what works for mid layers) and then an outer shell. Does not have to be anything to fancy, either pick up a cheaper jacket from a place like the winners store or even an REI should have things not to expensive.

Then I would suggest you just ask nicely a few of your friends who are your size if any of them have a jacket you could borrow for a few days

30-32 degrees is pretty darn warm for a winter snowboard day, *especially* if the sun is shining.
If it were me (and I am usually the one who feels chilly when i go places) I would wear:

-Under Armour (or similar) base layer on torso and legs
-light weight (or nothing) mid layer on torso... a long sleeve, thin polyester shirt or similar
-no mid layer on legs
-Snowboarding shell pants and jacket (10K or 15K)

You might be a little chilly on the lift (especially if it is windy), but you'll be sweating when you hit the slopes (unless you fall down all the time and sit around). Wisconsin doesn't have any huge mountains, so the temperature at the top will still be close to 30 (and warm for a winter ski day)
