Default Cold in Breck is NOTHING for these guys!

Hopefully, everyone in CO got to go riding saturday. I rode the beav, and loved it, but sunday was a different story. I rode breck and pussy'd out after four runs. I know the town was showing 1f for temp on my phone, so it was well below freezing on the mountain, and don't forget the wind chill…but I think I just witnessed the epic MANing up.

I fell face first into pow and thought I was going to die (hey I'm from Southern Cali).

Don't know how you guys ride around with fucking icicles on your chin.

I got pretty chilled up there. The lift stopped on Peak 6 and by the time I made it back to the warming hut on the bottom, i had frostbite patches on my nose and cheek. Guess i need a better facemask...

yeah, got a couple patches also. my coworkers were laughing monday, because they could see the spots clearly. i had a facemask but i had to take it off, i couldn't get it situated right so it wouldn't freeze my goggles.
