This would be a great outer layer for most days especially early and late season but you might want to think hard shell for those super cold windy days

Its not really designed for skiing as a stand alone shell. It is quite air permeable so you will feel a chill going down the hill. It is best suited as a mid layer or outer layer for mild aerobic pursuits.
Spend a few more bucks and pick up the sentinel, stingray or tempest jacket. its made with gore tex softshell and designed with skiing in mind and are also fully waterproof.
