Cover head and ears well with a wool cap.

Thinsulate gloves (a synthetic fiber that isolates very well from the cold). The ones used for  climbing are the best as they are fingerless but have a hood for total finger coverage. To take pictures, handle coins etc. the hood is turned back so that the finger tips are free.

The ski suit must be of good quality.
