I've never seen any blankets anywhere except old ski movies.
Sorry, I guess we don't have the same definition of cold temps.
I grew up in Montreal and I remember skiing on day in January 1982 at Smuggs where a blackboard before the Sterling lift (Madonna was closed) had something like this written: "Extreme Windchill -100F" I kid you not. It was -35c and really windy in Montreal when I left. What was I thinking?

I've skied many times at Stowe and MRG, but they don't stick out as being colder than Northern Vermont or Quebec. Tremblant is probably up there as a cold place IMO.
