Picked up this jacket for my trip to revelstoke and the Ice Man did not disappoint. I was originally worried the jacket would be too warm to ski and hike in but thanks to the hue pit-zips, temperature regulation was not a problem. I recommend rocking a t-shirt as your base layer. This is going to allow you to stay warm on the chair but not too warm when hiking with the pit-zips open. After using this jacket in revy, I am a total believer in wearing something insulated, rather then layering on cold days. The jacket kept me toasty on the lift and ridge lines and the breathability plus pit-zips kept me from over heating down in the trees where the humidity and higher temps got me sweating. The Ice Man runs big, so best to drop a size when you purchase.
