Too warm for Tahoe?

I've dropped a size or two and am looking at refreshing my gear to the correct size. I have a Theta AR from a few years back but want to go for a dedicated ski jacket this time around (i.e. want a powder skirt).

I am thinking about this or a Sidewinder SV at the moment and am curious as to how warm this jacket would be given I ski almost 100% in Tahoe.

With my Theta I would normally wear a lightweight capilene base, a 100 weight fleece and the shell and that seems to work for most of the season. With a Mako I would imagine I would have to dump the fleece and maybe beef up the base layer?

This is more a sizing thing for me. At 6'1" and my (current) 200Lbs I find that a North Face Large is a tad too big, a Mountain Hardware Large is a tad too small, but an Arcteryx Large is just right (though be warned it does run long if that bothers you).

I'd rate this fleece warmer than a NF TKA 100 or a MH Microchill. Looks a bit nicer than either of those fleeces as well.

Only dings are:

Price (expensive for a basic fleece)
Very short zip (I'm a fan of half zips for really dumping heat when you need to).
Neck is very roomy, which might be good if your base layers have necks but I tend to layer over crews so like the necks on my mid layers to be a bit tighter.

Going to check out a Delta AR next.

I travel a lot for work, so the ability to wear Icebreaker shirts multiple times without washing and resist odour is great for packing light and avoiding checked baggage. This shirt is my goto after work wear when on the road in summer. Looks great and easily as comfortable as cotton. Fit wise, I'm 6'1 and 205 and the XL is perfect.
