Went to Copper Sat 3/2. It was -23F when I pulled in, and stayed that way for the 30 mins I sat in car debating whether to ski. When I got out, the bright early morning sun made it feel 20 degrees warmer, so decided to ski. But, by the time we got to the top, sun was disappearing, wind was picking up, and temps hadn't warmed that much. Coldest day I ever tried to ski; lots of quick forming frostbitten noses and cheeks. I think I now know how New Englanders feel much of the time they ski; they're tougher than me.
