    Just giving you a hard time. I knew what you meant. I don't think I could ski with just a fleece and no shell. Unless maybe its like 50.

    Minus 12 wind chill while swinging on the chair lift is miserable.

    About the time this thread was started (9 years ago...really?) My daughter and I woke up to -30 at Windham one day (not the wind chill) and skied in -15/windy all day. It didn't get above 0 the 3 days we were skiing up there. I invested in a bunch of REALLY cold weather stuff in the local ski shops before heading out because frostbite is a real possibility.

    This week I'm bitching because it's going to be in the 30s and 40s at Killington and rain. Go figure.

    Ski patrol on the gondi at Gore showed me spots on his face that were frostbite damage from Tuesday, -35 wind chill.

    When is it too cold to ski?

    I don't do crowds and don't like arctic cold!

    My pass isn't good for the Holiday period anyway. That is peachy with me.

    Spend some quality time in the gym doing leg work.

    Practice guitar, piano, watch some movies...

    This week is going to be a freezer.

    Gotta make a run to the liquor store for some booze.
    Start slow, then taper off.

    Skied once at Loon with minus 35 air temp. Wind chill something like minus 70. Most cars in the condo lot would not start. Mine did so we went. Nice ride on the then new gondy. Good. One ride up the shiny new N peak triple and needed a break. That was too cold. As it warmed to near minus 10 it almost was bearable. One run. Break. Another run. Fireplace. Must be 30 years ago now and in those conditions now....hot tub and beer by the fireplace. But with 2 feet of blower...who knows???

    I took a ride up to the top at Hunter once when it was minus 40 or worse up there. They told everyone not to go..so I had to of course. By the time I got up there I could barely move..Slid down and went inside. So for me that was too cold to ski.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Go to Stowe this week. Mountain forecast shows...44 below zero windchills during the day..50 below at night. That will freeze your canolis off.

    I have skied with my wife and 3 boys at -20 with no wind and sunshine and we were fine. Another time I skied with a friend at -26 with 40 mph wind, no sun and it was not so good. 1 run and break, 1 run and break.
