Sounds to me like you could be wearing a little too much but definitely something in your "system" is not breathing and causing moisture to back up against your skin. I am another huge fan of Patagonia Capilene base layers. I typically only need level 1 and shell pants/jacket. If it dips into the teens or below I might have to zip the liner into the jacket and move to some insulated pants. I never find myself hot or cold.

I 2nd the Capilene line from Patagonia. I wear the Cap 1 graphic T (not skin tight but not baggy) w/ Cap 1 bottoms (more skin tight) and a R1 mid layer under a Burton AK gore-tex jacket with only the slightest bit of zonal insulation. I only get cold if it is 15 or below. Then I just put on a bulkier mid layer. The only time I can feel the sweat is when I'm hiking, and then I just open my vents and I am all better after a few minutes.

It is VERY hard to find a setup that will keep you warm on the lift, but cool and not sweaty while hiking/snowboarding hard. I would rather be a bit cold on the lift than be sweaty while riding/hiking, so I tend to overdress.

I would say try a non-skin tight base layer and maybe a gore-tex shell?

So my day has been shit, but a side from that I ended up with ice breaker merino wool top and bottom. It was 32 and sunny today. I layered up like a cold day to sweat and see how this wool shit worked.

Problem solved. Sweated my ass off, shit dries out in minutes. Don't have to wash it for several outings, never got cold, no way you're gonna ring sweat out of it ever.......

Thanks all..... For your advice. Merino wool for me.

All my other shit is top o line mt hardware gear so it was def a base layer problem.
