-25 F at Sugar Bowl.  Had to warm up in the lodge after every run.

About -30 to 35F plus 40 mph winds. VT. The wind chill was around -70F. Not really skiable. Made one short run. Most places in VT were closed that day due to cold.

I knew someone who used to guide on wilderness trails in Alaska. He considered the White Mts of NH the coldest place.

Yeah I admire the girl ski instructors for their slightly different take sometimes.  Im looking for pure young female gifted at snowbird.  I have to say also my male instructor here East is excellent.  That would be funny too if you were from Yellowknife.

Holy Moses I don't think I typed that.  Its off topic and weird.  Creepy is right.  I'm definitely not a perv.  Must be a typo.

I think it was sure and not pure.  My spell checker might have changed it.  I went to Snowbird and had two young instructors.  They were sure on their skis.  I was a mess first time in powder.

Have skied at minus the 20 30 and 40s C plus what ever wind chill but it's a sport, your geared up for it and moving .Temps are really no big deal.

When you open your gortex shell and see your sweat has been converted to ice crystals or the snow seems to have turned to styrofoam  its probably not as much fun but it's always better than any time you find yourself in those temps and it wasn't your choice.
