The only think I could think of was warmth, but it was a warm day on the mountain today and I would think that thing would be boiling.

 

I can't imagine it not being an ironic thing, but if it was, it was well played. The guy had a daypass and was there with a group of rental gear and Texas drawls, so... :dunno

 

 

I'd love to see him ski in that during an icestorm or heavy wet snow.

Someone posted a facebook photo of a skier at copper with a Jim Carry'isque Grinch costume over the holidays, all green and furry like that..  Must have been Mt Krumpett, er umm Copper..

Skied Christmas day @ Attitash in New Hampshire and it was literally just my crew and one other group.  Fast forward to the following Saturday and we were inundated with the Boston crowds.  New Years day was empty again and I'm sure tomorrow is going to be jam packed, but that's what you get for skiing weekends.

I made the mistake of going to local mole hill last week. Because of the thaw/freeze and lack of snow I actually had the steeper slopes mostly to myself. The lift is another story though, it's either stand in line with tons of other people at one lift, or the other one with hoards of park brats who will push and shove their way in and step all over your skis.
