Not uncommon for ice coast riders to armor up. Use black diamond telekneesis myself. Plus its kinda nice to rest on the knees facing uphill when waiting for friends.

OP. I'm from Florida, too.

That being said, I am used to the heat so I usually wear a base layer under the pants. It's not cold at all when you are riding, but it's the ride on the chairs that is cold while sitting in the cold and wind. If it was Tahoe like one poster said, you'd be fine on the chairs, but in the Colorado or Utah hills, it's a bit colder. BTW, gonna be in PC this month the 21st-28th. Am looking forward to seeing what all the hubbub is about with the heated chairs at the Canyons.

Ha, I have the same ones. Made for telemarkers but work just fine for snowboarding.

As long as my upper-body is warm, my legs pretty much don't get cold. Since my pants aren't insulated though, I will typically wear some thermal underwear when it's below 20. The way I see it is that if your getting cold, you're not riding hard enough

I found under armor to be the most comfortable for any out door winter pursuits. Icebreaker (merino wool) is also good. Not as comfy IMO but it does eliminate some odors on back packing trips.

On a BOX.

I see no issues wearing armor when doing park, but knee pads to cruise? Man the F up....

Unless you're a noob or doing park, knee pads are for sissies. Look up and cup the balls

I go a little crazy with layers, but when it is below 20 deg F , I wear a cheap pair of insulated bib pants under my Goretex (ak) snowboard pants. The bib part helps keep the core warm .I bought the outer pants a size larger to accommodate this.
Above 20 deg F I just use the outer pants with poly long johns underneath.A belt to keep the pants up .

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.
