    Skied with the wife and Kids at SB today till 2p. Mid-Mountain was at -16 below at the time and -18 below at the top. Great snow, just keep moving and you stay warm.

    Ya my family did not want to go skiing based on news reports that wind chills were going to be -27 today. F'n news blew it. Slept in and got up leisurely this morning stepped outside around 10 and whoa it was nice out? WTF! I kept complaining that we should have gone skiing today. Was not winning point with the wife. She was a little upset too that the weather report was so far off. Suggested going tomorrow but that will be the peak of the cold temps. So two days lost.

    Today would have been a warm up last year.

    Last night a friend was giving me advice on how to avoid frozen pipes because of what a mutual friend told him. He said there was supposed to be wind chills of -65. I laughed and said "Where? Mt Washington?" I can only guess the information received by another friend came from WMUR or The Weather Channel fear mongers.

    NYer's get what they deserve with De Blasio. They want a daddy, they got it. I went skiing today. It was cold, it was windy (and snowy at times with a couple of good bursts in the am). Good PP and some nice choices of bumps today (Rocket ROTD). My fingers pay the price of frostbite when young as the pain gets to me. After lunch it kind of got pleasant for a while in the sun but once that dropped so did the temps. Probably will skip tomorrow and sleep.

    Canyon quad at Killington on hold today for exposure. Never heard that one before.

    A little brisk at Mount Snow this AM (I took the picture at 7:45AM on my back deck) and that doesn't even account for the 15-20mph winds!! Weather Channel is saying the wind chill in the area is -46!

    Think I'll wait until noon or so to go grab a few turns
