The butt question...

I have one simple question...How does everyone stop their butts from freezing all the time? I'm a women who rides a lot in cold icy conditions and the body part that always seems to get cold first is my butt.

I was a little embarassed to post this at first but I'm tired of having a cold booty all the time so I decided to ask.

I've tried warmer layers... they just make me sweat everywhere else so that doesn't work.
I've tried shorts... they don't really make "warm" shorts so that was a bust.
I've even tried to stick hand warmers back there but they just move around and end up in the wrong place.

The local hills around here are quite small so a lot of time is spent sitting. How do other people prevent their booty's from getting numb from cold?

Thanks!

lol I sit as little as possible. The problem is the hills are small and we spent more time sitting on the chair lift and strapping in than actually going down the hill. In 3 hours of night riding we usually get in about 18 runs. Up and Down, Up and Down, Up and Down... It never ends.

The bonus is the hill is only a 15 min drive from the city which is why we go.

Extend your ride by working on things that dont require a lot of speed like butters/presses. Or build a jump somewhere. That is always good for keeping you warm plus you're not sitting. Just a suggestion...

Alcohol keeps you warm too!

i know a girl that sewed two small pockets on the inside of a pair of boyshorts and puts disposable handwarmers in them to keep her butt warm.

if you build a jump, do you just walk back up to hit it? keep lapping it?

Strap in standing up and why are crash shorts too big on you? There are a multitude of companies that make different styles and sizes. My little ex gf was able to find a pair that fit her, I am sure you could as well. That will be your best bet other than what kingkoajmr said

Thanks for all the advice. I like the pockets for handwarmers idea!

As for making the run last longer, I will when I can for sure. This year I'm looking at starting small jumps and learning to ride goofy a little to land jumps. I often ride with very advanced skiers on the bigger hills so I'm doing everything I can to keep up on my little board making it hard to make the run last longer.

I haven't tried on a pair of crash shorts that have fit yet. There's not a lot of choice around here and I don't want to order anything online as a small in one plce is very different then a small in another place.
