    I'll know if they work Sunday at Stowe. Hell I might wear them on Saturday to try them out when it minus 16. Just walking around town should be an adventure at those temps.
    And since I bought the wife the Heated gloves and socks ..I'm in for a bundle. Just about what the Arcteryx jacket costs by itself, and that thing is great and guaranteed for ever. . You sometimes get what you pay for.
    Lets go!

    my dad booked the equinox in Manchester for me and my girl using his starwood points. if Saturday skiing is unbearable, we have a beautiful resort to hang out at with an indoor pool, hot tub, steam, sauna, spa services for $, a room which is way too luxe for my bum ass, good restaurants, outlet shopping, a movie theatre. skiing sunday should be no problem.

    Nice place..checked rates..about the cost of my...socks LOL. I'm staying in a regular hotel but this is an option for sure. Too far from Stowe though.

    Big difference between body heat and toe heat.I'm almost always plenty warm or too warm in my core.Its only the toes and no amount of exercise warms those because they really dont move.Especially for those of us with bad circulation in those digits.

    oh yea, I'd never pay what it actually costs to stay there. my parents have what is essentially a starwood timeshare, but its points that they can use at any of the properties. it's real property and one day will pass to me and my sisters. they just pay a relatively small yearly fee for maintenance etc. I hardly ever ask them to use it, it's theirs, not mine (my greedy sister tends to take a tropical trip on parents' points every year tho), but with the cold and the noob girlfriend, I thought a proper resort would be a nice move. thanks pops.

    There also is some thought that maybe her hands are getting too warm and perspiring, leading to cold fingers.
    This was my problem. Glove liners helped a LOT. I did not need new gloves, just liners that wicked moisture better.
