comment Tent floor waterproof rating
For the snow, the chances of getting wet are low. However, Snow accumulation on the tent can be problematic. You should choose a tent that can withstand the accumulation and be slippery enough to let the snow slide down.

comment How important is thermal underwear for skiing?
@BillyNair: The OP did not answer my other questions concerning the type of skiing. Layering can be a valid answer for an advanced skier but I do not think it is a good one for a beginner. I have been doing winter activities for the last 8 years (temperature ranging from +5 to -25c without the wind effect).
