Love my txi but found it too hot in the early and late season, how cold is too cold for a sno cross? Going to pick one up this fall and need to know what to buy.

Never too cold for a motocross helmet. Ride with them down to -30 below never had frost bite eyes may water a little bit more just carry some scotch tape to close up some of the vents on the goggles and always fine. Do some more searches in the General snowmobile forum it is like ford vs chevy vs dodge everyone has there favorites and they think they are the best. I have very expensive helmets but have not been disappointed yet.

Do this and you won't go back to closed face.
what 509 goggles are you using?

I've been using MX helmets for winter since 2003. My dad kinda gives me crap for how often I buy helmets and how many goggles I have. I've currently got a Fly Racing helmet and 509 Sinister goggles with a clear/clear lens. I've never had a fogging issue with this setup and I've never owned a helmet this light. I've tried Answer and HJC helmets before. The HJC ones seemed to have very good quality and my Answer helmet was fawking heavy. I've used Smith, Oakley, and Castle goggles. The Castle ones sucked, the Smith goggles were ok but not great, and my Oakleys were nice but had fogging issues. My Fly helmet is really light and the best quality I've had. My 509 Sinister goggles are good quality, never fog, and make a great seal.
