2 on bottom, 3 on top.
I wear the same on the bottom as long as it's below 60 degrees, goretex ski pants with Northface windstopper microfleece pants (I own 4 pair)underneath. Above 60, just the ski pants and a pair of shorts. I regulate temperature on top.
On top, I wear a t-neck, maybe a layer and Goretex shell parka.
If there is a layer, it is either my very light Mountain Hardware Transition T, or my Mountain Hardware windstopper microfleece. that setup will keep me comfortable down to just sub-zero. If it's really F'en cold, I have this "thing" that I use as the layer. It came as a liner with my old patrol jacket, it's a nylon jacket with a fleece liner, I haven't been in cold enough where that didn't keep me warm....
If I'm in my insulated patrol jacket, that moves the top layer up one level.
Helmet on the dome, if it's really cold I'll wear a balaclava under the helmet.
