Yeah dude.. the temps are crazy.. wind chill in -40 range. Im headed up to Stowe tomorrow so won't be riding until Saturday where it looks like down right Florida temps of 0 or so and maybe high single digits Sunday. I don't think you will see teens until Monday.

If you make it out, I'd love to hear how things are. Sucks that we had that thaw weekend or else I think things might be in better shape. Im sure all the snowmaking trails are solid.

I was suppose to be leaving for Stratton tonight, but I just got over the Flu last week and I still feel weak with lots of shit in my sinuses and I am thinking these extreme cold temps would make things really bad...........

What do you guys think? Wait till next weekend (I have a yearly share).....

With the wind and the low temps, a lot of mountains aren't even fully open, even though there is snow. We were going to hit Mt. Snow as a compromise tomorrow, but they're only 75%. Not bad, but I don't want to be miserable just for Mt. Snow.

We have $35 tix to Jay Peak and Burke (through the CT Ski Council -- you should join!), but it's so effing cold I don't want to drive five hours just to take two runs. Plus, last I checked they're only running lower mountain because of the wind and cold. But they have new snow, too, and we're supposed to get freshies both Friday and Saturday. I'm so torn!

Wish I could give you good advice...we're going to play it by ear. Pico has a $20 ticket tomorrow, and it will be snowing. Maybe I just need an extra layer of long underwear!

If you're just getting over being sick, it might pay off to wait a week. It's supposed to start "warming up" on Sunday. What to do, what to do...???

I'd wait. Just got past a nasty sinus thing from last week. All I could think this week was, I'm so glad it wasn't this cold then.

Heal up soon!

-40 wind chill? sheeeeyit. Sounds like its movie/video game/good book time.

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

It's only gay if you do it by taste.
