What did you go with for layering?

If you're still looking I'd go with Patagonia merino 3 top with the Helly Hansen Warm hybrid 3/4 length long underwear. You don't want to go with regular long underwear, the extra material of the full length pant will get folded up and compressed in the boot and is generally uncomfortable. Ski boots have sufficient insulation to keep your feet and calf warm so go with a thin pair of OTC Smartwool PhD ski specific socks or something similar. If that Marmot you posted is just a shell go with a medium-weight non-windproof fleece. The shell will provide all the wind proofing you need and windproof fleeces have decreased breathability, Patagonia or Arc'teryx are my brands of choice. Also wouldn't have gone with the Stoic gloves. Stoic is the in-house brand for Backcountry.com, and is of suitable quality. But if you want something nice go with Hestra who makes the best ski gloves IMHO.

general rule, don't wear anything cotton under your ski clothes unless you want to be cold and wet all day.

I went with a Patagonia R1 pullover fleece with zip-up collar for a mid layer and Patagonia Capilene 1 stretch crew shirts for a base layer. Why? Because they were on sale and I think blue looks fast.

Blue is the fastest color. Everybody knows that.

Gotta say, I actually think this all looks pretty sharp.

Now please don't come back and tell us that you made one run and then sat around in the lodge the rest of the weekend smile.gif

I can tell you right now -- that is the most likely outcome.

You'll have a fantastic time, no matter how you're dressed.

I'm surprised more ski clothing isn't made to look faster. Where are all the racing stripes and lightning bolts?

Thanks vox for making this thread worthwhile.

I think this may be actually more stupid than the 1% thread. Love that it's in MC too.

Maybe you can inquire with Patagonia to see if they have such options in their bespoke line.
