I just got my [almost] brand new fancy Volcom jacket in that I bought off craigslist, It's a nice 3 layer goretex jacket but the damn thing only has two chest pockets, thats it. I'm in shock.

I still like it, but i'm used to putting all kinds of shit in my coat pockets

I live and die by my under armor here in the easy coast. Full leggings and long sleeve top. Sweats and a T shirt over that and jacket and pants.

For the face im usually in my underarmor face mask, bandana over that for bombs or the lift and my helmet. Google over or under depending on the helmet.

Burton Gortex gloves and underarmor linings for the cold days.

Oh and hybrid mix of socks. Just not 100% cotton

I wear on cold days:

Skinny leg fleece PJ pants over my regular base layers
base layer shirt
another light layer
wool or acrylic sweater.
good quality jacket and snowpants
I wear mittens with touch screen cheapo gloves
sometimes I keep a handwarmer in my pocket
I have a light polyester stretchy balaclava. Balaclavas stay in one place.
Then I drink Irish coffees

Mittens are warmer, my light mittens worn with cheapy knitted gloves with a hole in them are warmer than these fancy puffy gloves I have.

I also lap the gondola!
question.... out of all your equipment, does the irish coffe not keep you the warmest? :/

I wear REI base layers usually, and Capilene when it's really cold. My favorite mid layer is Polartec Powerstretch. That stuff is warm. I just got a synthetic insulated jacket from GoLite that I'll add for really cold days (like 0F and colder) when I'm standing around a lot. I wear a cheap fleece vest from Old Navy sometimes too.

My fingers and toes are the really important parts for me, though. I'll wear three layers on both my hands and feet when it's really cold (Smartwool liner socks and gloves, OR shell mittens with fleece liners, Smartwool PhD snowboarding socks, and my boots), and always have a few packs of handwarmers with me. Keeping my head warm when it's windy is crucial, too. I'll even wear my big MH Dome Perignon hat over a balaclava or thin beanie if I need to. That's right, two hats. I can't hear a thing but I'm warm, darn it.

No clothing advice here.

Instead,
Eat something sugary (chocolate, cookie, muffin,etc) or something high in calorific value. It will help balance your body's temperature and you'll be more capable to tolerate the cold.

On a couple of chair rides, it actually started to become a problem, because I was shivering so badly on the chair ride that I could barely manage to ride off the lift.
With me, it is usually a question of dressing for the lift and wearing too much for the slopes (and sweating), or wearing a tad too little for the lift and freezing in the wind on the way up.

If you are shivering that badly on the lift then you might want to bite the bullet and try one of these:
Core Heat Vest Liner - Gerbing's Heated Clothing
You could flip it on for the ride up the lift and then turn it off after you reach the top.

I've never used the battery powered liners, so I don't know how quickly they heat up.

Their motorcycle jackets and liners work great, though.

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

+1. Powerstretch is super warm and the skin feel is way better than everything else that I've tried.

Yeah, it definitely feels nice. The top I have now is sized/weighted as a midlayer, but I want to get lighter tops and bottoms for base layers, and maybe some liner gloves.
