Part of the problem might be that you live in a moderate climate and just go up the mountain for a day/weekend. Your body doesn't have time to adjust to the colder temps. I grew up in Nebraska and worked outside my whole life, when it first starts getting cold it takes a week or so of sustained cold temps for me to get used to it.
I roofed for 6 years in the midwest, 3 in chicago and 3 in Omaha. Year round.
Nothing sucks more than having to shovel a roof off before you even start to make money.
