haha ya, pretty cool tho that the only time the two scales meet is at -40 degrees. So next time it's that cold just say "hey it's -40 out" and when ur buddy asks "-40...what" just say it doesnt matter

My early 90's Tyrolia bindings shatter into pieces it must be really cold. I had that happen in -5 degree weather at Wildcat.

I remember one very cold morning at Stowe when my buddy's boot shell cracked. It was the perfect excuse to hang it up and gnar the shed for the rest of the day.

Unless you are a native San Franciscan.

Then 50 is t-shirt and shorts weather!

Especially in the summer!

nope, it had nothing to do with the temperature...they were notorious for breaking after exposure to sunlight Tecnica TNT boots had the same problem....

When, even after being in the lodge for an hour, my mouth still won't form words correctly.

Cattlemen say it's too cold for the herd if you can pinch off a piece of a cow's ear so if your ears start to fall off it's probably too cold.

When you inhale through your nose and your boogers freeze, that's pretty much when I say "Holy snotbags, it's freakin COLD!"

Snot-freezing cold, see? We don't get a lot of those snot-freezing cold days in the Alps like you get back in New England or Montana or wherever. But let's be honest: fast and/or covered lifts are making quick work of cold days. 'Cause if I think back to the coldest I've ever been skiing, it's always the memory of freezing on a (slow, open) lift somewhere that makes me shiver the most.

umm well, Madesimo, 1984... -36 deg C, inside the top tram station...
Colfosco 198x... -31 deg C, only thing I remember..it was a friday.
For me, it was cold enough.
Nowadays, I guess I can't stand more (or less, depends the way yuo look at it) than -10 Deg C...

Yes, but you just had to comply with the warning that came with the boots, which, I remember, was instructing the owner to keep the boots away from direct sun rays when not using them.
Which I did, with the results that the boots are still usable, even after 16+ years. Now, the liners are another story, after 12+ year the liners got so thin that I had two choices, get molded in liners or new boots. So now I'm a proud owner of a pair of Tecnica xt17...

I had a pair of boots fall apart on me before while skiing some BC with my dad in North Carolina. We both wet ourselves laughing as I walked back to the car with the boots shattering as I went along. That was the best time I have ever had with him, the type of thing you will never forget and years later we still burst into laughter thinking about it.

^^^^I saw that happen to a buddy at Stowe. Beyond freezing cold, first run of the morning he had a release and crash. While picking up the yard sale he said his foot was freezing. I looked down and saw a big crack along the arch of his boot.

These ended up in about 300 pieces.

When I wear an extra layer and a neck gaiter and my breath is still visible and freezing on the gaiter is when I think I should have stayed home with a nice bowl of spicy green chili.

Way cold?

When my feet and hands would alternate between being warm and being nearly frostbitten. That was when it was -2 F outside, and a stiff wind that made it feel like -30 F.

I'll stick with temps between 15-30 F, thank you.
