Okay, so I'm going heli skiing for the second time in my life this year and I'm thinking about trading in my 10 year old Northface suit (which has irritated me for years) for a new pair of pants and jacket.  I'm thinking about going with Goretex shells and layering.  I'm choosing between the Arcteryx Sentinel jacket and pants and the Norrona Lofted Gore-tex pro jacket and pants.  I'm 5'7" and about 115-120lbs, but like I said, I'm planning to layer.  Any experience with these brands or items would be most helpful!

 

All that being said, I'm not sure what colour to choose.  I'm not crazy about orange or yellow, but I know they're really noticeable on the hill...any experience with light blue colours on the hill?  Or light green?  

 

Here are the items I'm looking at:
