I have a KLIM Valdez shell that I use for both skiing and sledding. Being a non insulated shell enables you to layer as needed for anything from -40, did that in quebec sledding, to warm late spring skiing. Never wet, have owned for six full seasons and just now looking to replace. Looking at this jacket, but not sure it really will be any better than the valdez shell for skiing, as having been a skier for 50 years, I have yet to use a better jacket than the Klim, and that includes my last North Face Goretex. I have found this jacket on sale for 260 canadian, the valdez is over 650.

CC says:

Assuming you don’t want a very puffy jacket and want to stick with synthetic, there are much better options. For example, the Citadel Jacket from mountain-equipment with Drilite waterproofing. It has 200g of Primaloft Gold and is going to be much warmer (2-3x) than 100g of Thinsulate which is a dated synthetic and only used in ski jackets because it’s the most durable and the least expensive synthetic. Ski jackets are not meant to be warm unless you are very active and while the Leader has more Thinsulate than most of Spyder’s other jackets (60g), it’s still not a warm jacket without many other layers in cold weather. Another great option would be the Perch Belay Parka (it’s nowhere near as large as a typical parka) from Outdoor Research. 200g of Primaloft Gold, highly water resistant and windproof.
