I usually ski with my 15 year old daughter who can definitely rip but doesn't get to the hill before 10. One more year til she's driving herself! We ski in any weather and our home area is typically in the minus numbers wind chill. If you're not wearing high quality technical mountaineering gear it's asking for trouble, those things don't wear out quickly either. The one thing I really prize is my day-glo tennis ball yellow fleece hat. Many times in white-outs or ice fog our group has found one another by homing in the one thing they all could see- my hat!
