Not sure if anyone has started this thread before, so how about some chilly stories.
I have two, one here in the east, and one out west.
Killington Dec. 25, 1980. Something like 38* BELOW in Pittsfield, and the only car that will start is a Chevy Nova. Go figure! Out of a house of 10 skiers only my buddy Neil, who's car started, will go. We decide on Bear Mt cause of the southerly exposure.
So we show up and about another 6 or so hearty souls show and the patroller. We made a couple of laps and went into the old bandbox to warm up and discuss what a shitty idea this was. Prbably did 4 runs and called it a morning. That date is still the record cold temp for that date. Rutland, VT.
Second time was in January 1984 at Steamboat. Something similar in temperature to my Kmart day, but it was reported to be 44* BELOW to the west in a town called Dinosaur.
Highlight to that day was trying to start my brand new rental car. Finally got two or three cylinders to fire, so we cruised around Steamboat Springs with our completely frozen suspension. It was like driving a horse and buggy, very stiff.
I know that ski clothing has come a long way since then, but I think I'll stay in bed next time.
