What to wear in 20 degree weather?

Getting ready to go skiing next week in Stowe, VT. It is going to be in the 20's during the day and like 7 degrees at night. Living in Florida, I need suggestions of keeping warm. Already have the ski stuff, thermal underware and such. Just wondering if there is anything else I should bring.

Never understimate how cold the ears, nose and face get. It don't look pretty wearing a face mask, but have one for when you are too cold to care.

I also suggest double gloving. Small cloth gloves first, then put on your ski gloves. Hopefully the ones with a pull string that will tighten around your wrist.

If you're like my roomate, shorts and sandals will do. The man will wear those any time of the year. He's crazy, I tell you.

Dress in layers!!!!!

The last thing you want is to get too warm and start sweating and have to leave the slopes to dress down.

Think Pillsbury Dough Boy look and you'll be on the right track.

if you're worried about the cold, mittens are way warmer than gloves.

what's the wind chill supposed to be like?

for some reason, 20 degrees when you're skiing isn't that bad if you work up a good sweat.
