How cold is too too cold to snowboard?

The forecast for January 1st, this Wed is -23C to -28C, feels like -30 with 10km/h wind

A ski club is organizing a ski trip for that day. but it's so cold...

Will you go on such cold weather? I wanted to go until I saw the forcast

Yeah it's supposed to be -6 Fahrenheit without wind. That sucks to ride in. Once it drops under 10 I usually take a day off. It makes everything so much more difficult to do and enjoy. I also ride 75+ days a year.

If your car doesn't start it's too cold to go.

How cold is too too cold to snowboard?

The coldest I rode in was -16 C, which surprisingly didn't feel cold at all, as long as you keep moving. Never really had a chance to try anything colder, but if it's a trip somewhere really nice and you will not get a chance to go otherwise, I'd go for it. Layer up well though, good thermal gear and nothing cotton.

I did -30, but need good powder for me to go in that type of weather
