Not really, but I like to ski above my fitness level and tend to sweat most of it out.

That sounds horrible, sweating under winter gear is not fun at all.

Have you tried varying your layers so you aren't as warm?
During the winter, I can skin/bike uphill with barely breaking a sweat because I'll strip layers until I'm cool.

I usually wear a light parka (no down) with a thin "moisture wicking" shirt underneath. I'm mostly skiing small areas where the temperature rarely dips below 25 degrees (F) and the lift rides are short, so I don't really cool down much unless I take a break in the lodge. Taking off the helmet on the lift helps. On the rare occasions when it's genuinely cold, sweating is not much of a problem, thankfully.
