Best iPod speakers to toss in a backpack and play?

I'm way into skiing and I'm looking for some small portable iPod speakers that I could throw into my Ski daypack for when I'm hiking mountains with my group so that everyone can get pumped, not just me.

Was looking for any recomendations. It would have to be small and light, but still loud and be able to survive extreme weather conditions; mainly cold temps. I was looking at the wide array of options out there, but there's so many!

Thanks.

Just came accross this: Would about a boostaroo amplifier http://www.boostaroo.com/, tied to cheap speakers that don't require batteries such as these:

The Sonic Impact iFusions. I think my parents paid about $150, they come in a protective case, sound quality is good, portability is excellent (charge lasts 20+ hours), and they come with a cable so you can hook them up to other things (ie laptop, portable dvd, etc.) You can buy them at the Apple store or Apple store online too I bet. They're really, really great for throwing around since they're built into the case.
