-25 degree Fahrenheit = -31.6666667 degree Celsius

 

Snow is like glue under these conditions.

Actually, it is more like sand and even Holmenkol Start Green won't last.

Why are you telling us this?  The lifts opened half an hour ago.  (c:

 

I suppose on a Tuesday non-powder day there's no hurry to get out there and beat the crowd.  But if I didn't have to work, I would have been there for first chair at 8:45.

 

 

Have fun.

It's a perfect ski day except you have to stay on your edges.   ;-)

After logging 3 days this season at -5 or colder I can say I might be done skiing at temps lower than 0 for a few weeks.

So, presumably you survived.  How was it?

I went to the Detroit Auto Show...

It was 12 F in Detroit.

Pffft, back in my midwestern days we never complained until the temps hit -30.  After all, you're always only 3 minutes from the lodge wherever you are out on the hill or lift.  Just ski 5 runs and take a break, rinse and repeat.  Now, if you happen to be on the lift when it gets stuck for 45 minutes, that DID REALLY SUCK.  But, other than that we just called that skiing..

Correct.  It's right there in the skier's code, item number eight:

 

  1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
  8. No whining!
