Folks, it's a chilly jungle out there. Try not to wander through it unprepared, or you'll probably end up as an anecdote during apres ski...
Don’t fly into Aspen. Ever. I did, just to prove the point, or at least that’s what I’m telling y’all.
Don’t blow off drying your boot liners, it’s cold and hurty the next day.
Don’t follow up a satisflying blast down Whale’s Tail at Breckenridge with a faceplant on the way to the lift because you didn’t engage your brain right before hitting some really soft snow. It may not be all that hurty, but you lose points. I’m not saying I did that, just don’t do it, OK?
Don’t leave your helmet on the ground where… well, I think we covered that one already.
If you live where it doesn’t ever, ever snow and the highest peak is a landfill or a highway overpass, move.
A rusty nail is 3 parts decent scotch and one part drambouie and some ice. Remember that; your server might not.
Any other suggestions? Perhaps this can become a useful Wiki. Heck, I was all set to purchase a Ski Tote (tm) until some nice people spent my money on a comfy jacket and a hat with a tassel instead, thank you all...
