cold behind on ski lift

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

My wife loves to ski but cold ski lift benches are turning her off. We saw some people with funny looking butt warmer but no idea where to buy them.

Seriously?

I have had the same problem on occasion here in the Northwest.  Frequentlly the temps. are barely below freezing and very wet snow is coming down.  It freezes on the chair and you end up sitting on a piece of ice.  That has led me to develop a product to help with the problem that I am working on bringing to market.  Lots of details to figure out...like how to get it produced.  Stay tuned I may have a less "obvious" solution to the problem than the product in your link.

Maybe she should look into some pants marketed toward snowboarders.  Even the uninsulated variety often have a little bit of insulation in the butt so as to prevent getting cold when sitting in the middle of slopes.

How would pants that hang down to the ground and display your butt crack help keep you warm?  biggrin.gif

I can warm it up for her.

Yeah, what you're looking for are impact shorts.  You can probably find some ones that are pretty light on the padding, but will still offer effective insulation.

 

Or you could get the funny-looking butt warmers.

There's some guy around here that wears a cape from his belt down. Atleast, I imagine that's what he uses it for? confused.gif

a hunk of sleeping bag pad inside your pants work well

Try rubbing Icy Hot or Bengay on your buttocks before skiing. It will artificially increase circulation and help combat the cold. And as an added benefit it will keep your leg muscles from tightening up. Just be careful not to overdo it and end up perspiring and having the stuff too close to your groin area; it will burn.

There is a cape I've seen on the slopes people wear when it's wet out.  It's made by Beavertail.net.  I've read their frequently asked questions and it seems to make sense and it's only $24.00.

Who wears a cape?

It's not realy a cape.  It's more like an apron worn over your butt.

I use a product called 'Hot Buns'-basically it's a neoprene-velcro butt-hamstring apron.  And it's the best piece of clothing I ever bought.  Yep, it's not cool or stylish, but it keeps your butt warm and dry during a sleet storm.

 

I don't recommend typing 'hot buns' into a google search engine, however.

 

I got mine a few years ago through reliable racing...I think they were 20 bucks.

+1 on the hot buns from snowshack

This surprises me, ladies usually have extra natural insulation back there and have pondered this believe it or not...but I figured only us males would have this issue, some of us look like we had an assectomy.   I wear crash shorts the side benefit is my ass never feels cold.

I made  the mistake of image searching "extreme double black" for the ski run rating thread.

Impact shorts/hip pads are a good idea anyhow. Saved my butt (literally) a couple of weeks ago. Took a full rock strike to the left *ahem* cheek. But for the impact shorts I would have been asymmetrical for foreseeable future.
