That's downright dangerous. Damn. And I just got a new helmet and installed my Skullcandy speakers in the earpads. Sounds awesome! I was looking forward to it, and the wife has the day off tomorrow. But it doesn't look like it's getting any better for the next few days. At least in the teens on Sunday, that's not too bad. This sucks...I missed all last season because of foot surgery, now I've only been out five days because the weather has sucked.
That does suck! I would not mess with a temp of -20 and winds in the 45mph range. That sounds like bad news, and I can't see it being enjoyable. I was out two weekends ago with -15 windchill and high winds, and although I was fine, some members of my group were visibly (and audibly) miserable, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of snowboarding, which is to have fun.
