i think the under armour cold gear works great.


&




past couple times out i've actually taken off my hoody and just wore the longsleeve under armour and a jacket and my core & head were still too hot.

also compression shorts + skeletools keep my legs and ass warm

I think I'm pretty comfortable on the way down, except maybe my arms/hands. I don't sweat much while snowboarding so I guess that's not a problem.
Ahaha true. Although my friend is a triple E (not kidding). I wonder how she even finds those hand warmers at the end of the day.

If you're thinking of trying new gloves, get some mitts. I love mine in part because I can slip a hand warmer in if I want. But often they're warm enough.

Ooh - Coal has armwarmers that might work...something like the Julietta The Womens Beanies - Women's Collection - Fall/Winter 2012 - Coal Headwear

Edit: Ah I thought the Julietta didn't have the mitt part. I guess if you find them on sale you can remove that part?

Merino wool ninja suit, wool shirt mid layer or a micro fleece mid layer, wool jacket. And if it's windy I have a goretex shell jacket that I rarely wear.

Bottoms is usuall just base layer and uninsulated 15k pants. Sometimes I'll rock fleece wader pants if it's really cold (-0).

I'd ditch the insulated jacked for a good wool layer and a good shell jacked , all that insulation traps moisture when your sweating while riding and makes you cold. Wool breaths better and dries better and is actually still pretty warm while slightly damp.

Goretex is great when it's windy.

Avoid cotton like the plague.

Is your ass cold? Seriously, if the chairlift seat is cold (covered with ice? lifties not sweeping the seats?) you can lose a lot of heat thataway. When I put on my impact shorts and my spine protector I feel WAY warmer on the chair simply because I'm more insulated from the seat.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Off topic, but do those impact shorts really help much on falls? I've been thinking about ordering some. I have not really injured myself on falls but I'm kinda pushing it more in the park this year. I've thought about getting some.

OP - If I was wearing that much I'd be sweating like crazy! You might have to just cry like mixie suggested!

Yes. They are lightweight and I like them as ass protection because I got no meat on there!

Yeah, I might try armwarmers too. Underneath the 10k stuff, I'll look like an 80's aerobics instructor. It's what I've secretly wanted to be, all along

But yeah I think armwarmers and mitts would help.

I think its mostly my upper body, but I'm willing to try lower body clothing. I already ordered base layer pants because I haven't been using them before. I'm hoping that helps a little...

Honestly, last year, especially in spring, I was burning up most of the days. When it got to 70F, I almost stripped nearly stripped off the jacket and rode around in a tank top. This year it's been like 10-15F on the slopes. I can't imagine what it's like in CO or way up in the Canadian Rockies.

Go full on and get some legwarmers, too, then!
