I have a schoeller wb400 jacket from another company (a Mammut Laser jacket). It's a great fabric. Softshell is definitely the way to go. Unless it is seriously raining (pouring!), the wb400 fabric will keep you pretty dry; and, it will breath better than a hard shell in any conditions. The other advantage to wb400 is that it is super rugged and abrasion-resistant. The stuff is seriously burly. It should last for years!
If you don't ever ski in the rain, you might even want to go for a lighter weight schoeller fabric like Dryskin Extreme. It's a bit less heavy duty, less water resistant, but better breathing.
And, as for Cloudveil, I think they're an excellent company. I have an old Serendipity jacket and some older Black Ice bibs. Both are among my favorite pieces of gear. Very well designed and executed.
I think you'll love that Boundary jacket though. it looks like a sweet piece. Everybody's jumping on the softshell bandwagon - TNF (Apex), Patagonia, ArcTeryx, etc. But Cloudveil (with their Serendipity jacket) was actually the first US manufacturer to put out a Schoeller fabric jacket. Softshell is their bread and butter.
