Now you see, around here they make us secure any loose or dangling items for fear they might get "hung up" on the lift.




....although I think in those temps, I'd be more concerned about them sticking to the metal on the lift! Now that, that would make for an interesting conversation starter!!!! Or at the very least, a very uncomfortable dismount! Lol

the metal chair is way more concerned about getting stuck to my balls than vice versa.

We'd have to change your name to "Snowklingon".

That's getting to the temp where the snow gets sticky. I'd still go, drink brandy and have fun.

Lowest I've gone it was this year. 0 degrees Fahrenheit -15 degree wind chill. Awesome day found some nice powder stashes and the mountain was empty.

My kids and I were out on a -4f day. It's not that bad if you dress well.

I'd prefer to keep it above -20c. Anything below that is tough but I've ridden plenty of -25 days and a few that got down to -30 so they closed the lifts. Not fun at that temp, no way you can have any exposed skin whatsoever.

If I drive 4 hours I'll ride any temp but locally -15 is about my cut for riding park... Pow is worth it lol.
