For under a helmet, skip the ski stores and go to a snowmobile dealer.  You can get a nice thin balclava for about $7

I was issued the balaclava I now use while I was in the Marine Corps and it works great for keeping my head and face warm.  Best part about it is snug all around and the face portion is designed to comfortably pull underneath your chin when you don't need it.

 That's actaully the best design I have seen, plus the added benefits of protecting from explosives and a lot of different bacteria!

Mid Weight Balaclava w/Face Guard

This garment is constructed from patented Advanced Protective Fabric™ (APF). APF characteristics include fire resistant (garment will self extinguish once the source of ignition is removed - certified as non-melt and non-drip) advanced moisture management (APF's scored a very high 1855 on moisture vapor transfer testing - comparable to Under Armour®'s Heat Gear), anti-odor/anti-microbial (X-Static technology dramaticallly reduces the body odor and destroys a wide variety of harmful bacteria including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus) and is anti-static (the fabric can take a 5,000 volt charge and decay it to 500 volts in .01 second and enhancing its safety in explosive, fuel rich and sensitive electronic environments.)

I don't know what the hell you guys are running on about.  This is by far the best balaclava ever.

Slightly off topic (though after exracer, not so much) ... I saw a guy on the hill Saturday with a beard head hat (www.beardhead.com) under his helmet. It was hilarious looking roflmao.gif and he seemed to be warm (it was blowing cold snow).
