Beau knows cold

It's been cold here in MT this winter!  20 below for a couple days in a row.  

Thus, it's been fun to experiment with different Mammut clothing systems.  

So far, for super cold days (or guiding), I've enjoyed going with a hooded mid layer like the Mercury Jacket.  Over that, I'll wear a shell like the Crater Jacket or the Felsturm Touring Jacket.   Over the top I'll don a Eigerjoch or Broad Peak Jacket, depending on other details of the planned tour (like exposure to wind, distance, vert, weight in backpack ect.)

Lots of great options in the Mammut line.  :)

One good trick in regulating temps while ski touring, is through your hands and your head. Warm mittens, for instance, add a lot of overall warmth. Conversely, skinning gloveless, is a good way to cool down. :)
