    I have skied below zero in a shell, and no face mask on many occasions and been perfectly comfortable. But those are days when there is no windchill.

    Not sure what "Neckies" are but if it is below 25 I where a neck warmer and if below 10 I wear a balaclava. below zero both.

    When you wear this many layers

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

Feet are usually fine and a nylon head warmer under the helmet and neck gator have never let me down but the fingers just get to the point of being uncomfortable and at that point it becomes no fun.

    My wife has Raynaud's syndrome so I bought her a pair of these electric mittens. http://www.ventureheat.com/
    She couldn't ski without them.
    The batteries last the whole day if you don't use the highest setting. These work much better than the disposable packs.
    Expensive but it could be worth it.

    I ski in most cold weather but if it is very windy and that makes me uncomfortable, so if I on weekend get away and it -10 and 30 mph wind I ski with lots of breaks. If it that temperature and winds going at local hill and not a powder day I stay home.
    Unless I am Elk in a fleece when I should be wearing a coat that day last year the cold got to me quick.

    I looked up Raynaud's syndrome. That sounds awful but she copes well it seems.

    Neckies are what I have always heard fleece neck warmers called.
    I wear a balaclava under my motorcycle and snowmobile helmets but hate them skiing.

    I wear a face mask and wristies for my hands, never had a problem with these areas. It's my toes that get cold, one time I had a slight case of frostbite on my toe nail area.... I got really worried that it would sideline me for the rest of the ski season.

    When is it too cold to ski??? NEVER!!!!! In the 20+ years I have been boarding I have never decided it was too cold to continue. I'm sure there is a magic tempreture out there that could drive me away, just have not encountered it yet.
