I would agree. This jacket is not designed to keep you terribly warm, but it will completely protect against wind and precip to a point. I skied last week in Colorado with temps in the mid-20's to mid-30's and felt very comfortable with a thin base layer and a mid-weight middle layer under the jacket. If I were going to ski on a pretty cold day, I would definitely bulk up my mid-layer. I own two Marmot softshells and they both feel a little cold in the sleeves on days when the temperature really dips. I treat softshells like I would a hardshell: If you want to stay warm, you must provide insulation in the inside.
