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

I used similar for snowmobiles. It would be too warm for snowboarding imo.

Commando. Steezey.
Nah, seriously though, Tahoe gets hot. Sometimes I go basketball shorts and nothing else. I usually go compression shorts and nothing else. Sometimes b-ball shorts over compression shorts. When I'm up in the North West or on reaally cold tahoe days, I do compression shorts with track pants.
I don't think I've ever worn an actual base layer.

Before my trip out west I'd like to get everything I need. No real way to test this here in FL as it's been 80*... What if anything do you need to wear as a midlayer for uninsulated pants?
there are 2 main considerations I always use when choosing the layer under my pants:

1. is it a cute color?

2. does it make me feel pretty?

feel free to borrow my system.

Is that a MASH quote or are you living up to your username?

here's a relevant mash quote for ya:

Hawkeye: Did you see that?
Nurse: What?
Hawkeye: A big red bird with fuzzy pink feet.
Trapper: Hawkeye, did you see that?
Hawkeye: What did you see?
Trapper: A big red bird with fuzzy pink feet!
Hawkeye to the nurse: See?

here in the PNW, i only rock boxer shorts that go down to above the knee and some Salomon ski socks from the knee down. I get the same coverage as thermals, without actually paying $30 for them.

Concentrate your layers on your core instead. As long as your body core is warm, your extremities will be fine.

Yeah, knee pads! Imagine that... because unlike some of my other friends who "manned up" while we grew up playing soccer, throwing flips in gym, doing karate and riding street/park on my rollerblades... I am in my mid 30's and my knees aren't f*cked up or blown out from abuse.
I haven't torn any of my ACL/MCLs
I haven't shattered my knee cap
I don't have to wear a leg brace
I've never had any surgery.

I had a college roommate who has to use crutches for the *rest of his life* (from disease, not injury). Small wonder that I would see something like that first hand and come to the decision that trying to take care of myself so that maybe I can jog with my nephews/grandkids/etc without needing a cane or walker when I am 60 yrs old.

All things considered, I would rather be a sissy than a macho dumb-ass.
