    Coldest I skied was at Burke in the 1990's over February break. It was brutal.



    Our passes our blacked out this week, so we'll won't be skiing in these temps.

    I'm happy sitting these few days out. There are plenty of other things I can do that will more enjoyable.

    Skied in minus 20 at sugarbush a few years ago, with plenty of layers it was survivable but definitely not pleasant

    -20 wind chill, or air temp?

    Sounds awful either way.

    I believe it was -20 with wind chill but at points the wind picked up and it was even colder

    I've found -20 due to mostly wind chill to be worse than a straight -20. I've skied in both and vastly prefer a colder actual temp with no wind versus the other way around.

    I agree. the wind allows the coldness to get in through small openings and gaps.

    Only saving grace for the weekend is, wind might be on the light side.

    Was looking forward to hitting MRG friday, but we might start at SB since Friday looks colder than saturday (Sunday looks worse than both!). At least at SB you have HSQs and don't have to go all the way to the top to have some decent skiing. Castle rock chair is gonna be cold though. But better than the single I think.

    Disagree based on the aspect of the Single Chair vs most Sugarbush lifts. Also HSQ can give you some wind chill on the way up.

    Single chair you bundle up and enjoy your bad mood due to deep freeze as best you can, fully in tune with the brutality of nature and free from all of the rudeness of other people's thoughts, or as some call it, comradery.

    Lmao pissing people off and/or or being pissed off on the chairlift is half the fun of skiing solo!
