Question What to wear on cold days

What do you wear on cold days and do you have any tips to stay warm?

My complete cold weather list:
The North Face Slasher Cargo Pant
The North Face Free Thinker Jacket
Under Armour long underwear
Smartwool snowboarding socks
Patagonia Capilene 2 top sometimes a Tech t-shirt under this also.
Fleece jacket
Helmet (keeps my skull warm)
balaclava
Goggles
hestra heli gloves.

I want to switch out the fleece sweater for a Down sweater like the ultra light ones at Eddie Bauer?
Any thoughts?

IMO if you are cold...

I'd wear the Capilene 2 as your base (I use a Cap1) With a Merino sweater(midweight) as your next layer, followed by a Nanopuff type jacket under your shell.

Also when it's real cold in addition to my base leggings, I'll wear a pair of super heavy rei baselayer pants (basically a lightweight fleece sweatpant).

I recently got a Merino Buff that I like alot. I wear it up on my head under my helmet even on warm days it is just so comfy, but it's also great in the cold.

Also maybe switch to mittens or triggers or lobster gloves. 5 fingers are always gonna be colder even if it is badass hestra....

Thanks.

Yeah that is kinda were I am thinking with the puff layer. It is my core that I get cold with.

My legs stay pretty warm really, just on the lift they get a little cool but once moving again they are fine.

On the super cold days I rock merino wool base layers with Kuiu Super Down pants and jacket as a mid layer. Real 850 fill down thats been DWR treated so it doesn't fail if it gets wet. Great stuff on a cold day!

I must be warm blooded because I've been out in a single burton baselayer and goretex shell in -15c. I'd probably aim to wear an extra merino base layer and maybe a tshirt at that temp ideally. Below that, i'd probably get a hoodie on too and zip the lining into my 686 Smarty pants. Riding generates a lot of heat!

I run kind of warm but at Stowe two weeks ago with high temps at the base at 0 and -9 up top:
  • Tech or capilene tee
  • EMS t3 baselayer mid-zip
  • Patagonia Nano Puff Vest
  • TNF Shell
  • t3 base layer on the bottom and sometimes an extra set of tech shorts underneath
  • Pants (mt. hardware)
  • Mittens w. fleece liners (OR)

I basically use a combo like this with a different level baselayer depending upon how cold. Sometimes I go fleece vest versus nano puff, and I have a puff mid-layer jacket but tried wearing it once and it was too warm.

I just ware a thin fleese sweatshirt under the snowboardjacket. No thermo underware, just the snowboard trousers. But helmet and face mask are standard even in spring. If it's below 15°celsius, I might add a second shirt. But mostly I'm sweaty anyway after the first descent no matter how cold or warm it is.
I always take along a spare fleese west in the backbag for the less active aprés ski

Since I've worn this under my jacket, I've never had a cold core... In fact I ride with a spring jacket most of the time now.
