    I have both. I thought the Hotronics S6 was for spoiled kids but once I bought them ($189 actually) there is no going back. I use the boot covers for really wet or super cold conditions. I am not a breaks or hot chocolate sort so this set up is a really good investment for me.

    Also I am 61 and trust me, your circulation does not improve.

    I don't know how many people were on the slopes at Burke today, but the local ice arena had one of the busiest public skate sessions they have ever had. Around 200 people. A lot of people from out of town.

    Cold effecting many ski areas today. Killington and Pico are delaying most lifts. Wildcat is closed for the day. I'm sure others are doing the same.

    Yep Wildcat was reporting -50 with the windchill. Too dangerous to open.

Agony at SR was open on natural snow on Dec 25th. Let that sink in lol.
    That's usually what I do, but there's supposed to be fresh snow on Saturday, and I was planning on heading to Wachusett for New Year's Eve, but the daytime high is 6! (Night low is supposed to be -9!) Yikes!

    SR also only had 1 surface lift running this morning.Looking at the many mountain cams its a ghost town at a lot of areas.In reguards to boot covers,I used them for a couple seasons and then bought heaters.The neoprene only does so much.Big difference with the heaters as they heat under your toes.

    The mount snow cam shows a good crowd for the bubble chair. I didn't think much of the bubble at first, since I remember riding the old triple which ran 17 mins to the top, but I'm now glad they put it in, I'm losing my tolerance for this cold. Hopefully Stratton puts one in at Snowbowl, the summit temp there right now is -18. Yikes.
    And on the seventh day, Ullr created Magic Mountain...

    In Europe those bubbles are everywhere. I wonder why they are less popular in the east. I speculate the east coast ski areas pay much more for shipping relative to resorts in the alps.
