    I hate missing good snow because of the cold, but Ive never dialed in the mask/goggle/frosting thing. Ive had dumb luck a couple of times but its typically a shitshow trying to see clearly.

    Yup same. Even worse is a powder day. They get fogged up then you try to scrape with wet gloves and it just gets worse till you go inside. At least when it's cold you can scrape them off. My remedy is to take a handwarmer and rub it on the goggles...the fog goes away for a few mins. Not a great solution but haven't found anything else.

    You guys in New England and New York have to deal with a different kind of cold and discomfort than the rest of the skiing nation.


    So I have sympathy with those who opt out on the coldest days. I skied Killington one day in the 1970s when the bank in downtown Rutland said minus 37 when we were heading up to the mtn at 730am. For us it was a novelty, the sun came out and later it was minus 17 on the mtn. You guys deal with that stuff too often to be a novelty.

    Most of us weekend warriors in the mid-Atlantic very rarely have a ski day with air temps below zero. Out west it doesn't get that cold either, and even when it does, a zero degree day out there feels like 20 degrees back here because of the low humidity and intensity of high altitude sunshine.

    I like the handwarmer idea , was thinking a second pair in my pocket with a Cotton rag that I could change out ? Keep the warmer together with the second pair?

    Ya I def missed a few days because of the cold this winter. regret it now that the season is over. i am always nervous about lift failure when the temps get that cold.
