|rileyshred4ev||the bindings that broke in the cold were ride bindings and yes it was probably a manufacturing defect but it gets really really fucking cold where I live -30 to -40 is like the usual and when it's that cold the bindings do become less flexible in areas|

-20 to -25C before windchill is relatively normal around here.
Below -25C requires a re-think on layering, masks, gloves, etc. but it can be comfortable with a bit of planning (more gondola, less chair, more sheltered runs, etc.) and usually less crowded.
For me though, below -35C isn't worth spending for lift tickets. If I'm already there, can't put it off until the next day and can't get a refund, then I'll do some runs, but otherwise....meh

|aiidoneus||I've been out in -25C that felt like -30C with the wind chill. The only thing that sucks is any tiny gap in your gear (the tiny space between the helmet and goggles) feels so damn cold when the wind gets in.|

When it gets below -20F or so, the snow gets so damn sticky that I usually bail due to shitty riding conditions before I bail because I get too cold.
When it's that cold, even cold weather wax leaves you sticking to the snow like it's fly paper.

|HoboMaster||Coldest I've ridden was around -15F with -30F windchill. They actually put up a sign at the lift to check for frostbite because people were getting their faces blasted on the way up. The temperature itself isn't so bad, what makes it fucking cold is the wind. The pow that day was worth risking the frostbite though|
