    Think I'll wait until noon or so to go grab a few turns
    Only -10 here and I am still waiting to this afternoon to catch a few runs

    Leaving gatehouse lodge at Sugarbush. I guess I should have worn a neck warmer

    Looked at the temp at Greek this morning, -18, thought about blowing today off, glad I didn't, sun's been out all morning, winds seem less than yesterday, not terrible. In the bar now, skied from 9:30 till 11:00, toes are a little cold, that's about it. Oh, couldn't light my morning bowl on the lift, cheap ass dollar store lighters, it works for shit even when it isn't frigid, time to upgrade, matches would probably be a good backup for days like today.

    K has used exposure as a reason a lift is closed before. Sugarbush closes Slidebrook all the time because of exposure, I'm sure it's closed today.

    I must admit this weekend's cold temps had me feeling a little Randy.

Probably will skip tomorrow and sleep.

    we were on our way up yesterday, about 20 minutes from home, when the program director called and advised us to reconsider...even though we've done single digit F temps with no issues, given the possibility of crazy wind chill i deferred to his better judgment

    -114 windchill on Whiteface on Sat night. That's serious.
    I rarely ski on Pres Weekend for crowd/cost avoidance reasons. But this year must admit I got to avoid cold temps too, which we're having even down here in mid-Atlantic.
    I love all skiing, East, West, North, South. In recent years I've been able to ski out west quite a bit. I gotta tell you, 20 degs out there feels like 45 degs in the East. I hate to spread this wormlike wussie talk, but it's true. It must be the low humidity and the the more intense high altitude sunshine?? It just feels different. The other thing that drives you nuts in the Northeast is it can be 4 degs one day and 44 degs and raining the next.

    Jim:

    I skipped yesterday. Saturday was cold, but the conditions were really good (and zero crowds). Hopefully this weeks weather doesn't do too much damage. They've been doing a good job of resurfacing but how long do they continue to do so? From here next weekend looks springlike (I won't complain about that unless they really melt down)

    Jim: You hitting on all the points that have my wife and I looking at a 5-7 year plan of going west. The combination of last year and this year have just been selling that idea big time. Last year the snow was great here but the cold got to us as my wife got badly frost bitten on a stupid cold day at Burke. We went west (Which was supposed to be horrible but was still better then back east) and it was so nice to ski in the 30's and come down the canyons to 60+ weather where we could just walk out in swim trunks to the hot tub. That plus the beginning of this season (I didn't start skiing until Jan 24th) which in my opinion was what it must be like to live in the deep south. Its all adding up to that move one of these days.

    BTW Really enjoyed your reports on your safari last season and your Aspen report this year. Live that dream.
