Yep, those are my skis. Just did 2 runs and came in because I can't feel my toes.

Been below zero here every morning for over three weeks now.

Hit my fastest speed ever on Sunday morning at 72. Immediately went in and called it a day as I couldnt feel my extremities anymore.

haha I was thinking the same thing on my walk to the train from work last night. "Jesus it's cold...bet the mountains are nice and empty."

About 15 years ago, similar temps at Sugarloaf. When you bought your pass, they gave your free hand warmers. They had lifties checking you for frostbite. 2 runs and we had to go in (to the widowmaker) to warm up.

How cold is it? I was at Jay last year in -17, and it was pretty brutal.

At the start it was -3 and the wind was kicking at the base. I bailed pretty quick. I swore off toe warmers years ago
but I'll have to rethink that if I do another day like this.
