    I have the same scarf, I find myself wearing the other side more often (brown/cream, no blue)

    I love it since it doesn't get caught on my facial hair like all my other scarves do, holds up really well for recycled wool.

    also, the right size and shape boobie can look quite fetching under a turtleneck or snowflake sweater, if it is tight enough.

    Skip the scarf. After a run or two you will most likely be looking to vent heat, not stay warm. The scarf is going to get very sweaty. Ditto for the OCBD/sweater you mentioned earlier. I suggest athletic wear under the jacket, mostly because whatever you wear underneath will get nasty.

    Use the scarf in town, not on the slopes. If it's cold enough for a scarf while skiing, get a neck gaiter.

    Return that ridiculous teal helmet for a grey or black. The gloves are out there far enough, the helmet is over the top. You are starting to look like an Easter Egg.

    Drove through Vail on my x-country trip this past summer. So damned nice.

    Enjoy it man.

    Will do as suggested with the scarf--but am committed to the helmet. Love it.

    I must admit, I dont mind seeing the ladies fall. Especially the boarders. When they bend over, it's crack city. I'm taking the day off to tomorrow to board at Northstar. About fucking time. Finally get to put the season pass to use

    Californians and Texans make up probably more than half of the tourist revenue and property taxes in Colorado :)

    Don't agree on the cotton thing. I'm most comfy in a cotton waffle-knit. Poly/synthetics doesnt feel any better.

    Warmth is a personal thing. I hope as an easterner he's got some cold tolerance. As a former Cali and Texan resident, my get up was long sleeve base, fleece vest, and a standard shell. Kept me perfectly warm for the 2 seasons skiing Summit Co as a resident.

    Ski socks and other "activity-specific" socks are quite superfluous. Any pair of wool socks will do....thickness dependant on one's footwear
