The superhero amongst alpinists.

The Men's Super Alpine Jacket by Patagonia protects you from harsh conditions on ski mountaineering and other alpine adventures.

Weighing less than a pound, the Super Alpine delivers exceptional protection without the weight.

The Super Alpine also features zippered vents at each underarm for airflow where you want it most. Its hood is fully adjustable as well as helmet-compatible, and the hem works with the cuffs to seal out any cold drafts. The zippered side pockets are always accessible even with a backpack on, and the zippered internal pocket protects your valuables.

Brought this jacket on a hut trip to BC. It ended up drizzling on us the first couple days ski touring. I usually wear a knifeblade softshell, but was glad I had this until the rain turned to pow. Didn't show any signs of wetting through and kept me dry. I sized it down so that it fit closer to the skin with room for a light layer. Still good range of motion and long enough on my longer torso. Size up if you want to throw a puffy on underneath it though. I tend to just throw a down layer over the shell if it's cold out at the summit, then remove for the descent.

how warm is this jacket? How would it be suited for skiing?

This is a great ski jacket for sure. It's not super warm on it's own as it's just a shell, but it is fairly burly fabric that will completely block all water and wind - so as long as you layer well underneath you'll be fine.

Quite good

(This is the 2013 model) I'm very impressed with the Super Alpine. It is Gore tex pro shell, and yet has a much more supple hand that the Arc'teryx pro shell shells. I can imagine that there is a trade-off in durability, but this seems tough enough. The pockets are large, the pit zips are long, and there is a small interior chest pocket.

Quite good

It looks like you are wearing a Super Pluma in that picture instead of a Super Alpine...which is also a great jacket! (Although discontinued at this point)
