Re-new skier, help with gear choices?

My warmest base layer is a pair of exercise/yoga pants I got from JCPenney, exertion brand.

I bought my first helmet and googles from Costco, they worked great until I was ready to make a commitment to skiing. I've also purchased goggles from amazon and they work really well.

I have Smith goggles, but my Costco goggles are actually more comfortable. And also, they sell some fleece lined Felina leggings (long underwear) that are INCREDIBLE as a base layer...super soft, cozy and wick great.

I own several baselayer bottoms by Smartwool and others. But my favorites are Helly Hansen capri length. So much easier than folding up the bottom of the legs into cuffs. I have skinny legs but the cuffs get too tight when they are higher than the boot.

I used to use a pair of winter running tights on super-cold days. Thick and warm. North Face, I think. They got holes and I got rid of them, decluttering minimalist that I am want to be.
