I like my neoprene face mask ... like maybe at Jay Peak when it's -10F and the wind is blowing 20-30 MPH.
Bringing the bar down quick is a "helmet test". I get kickbacks from the shop when the skiers with bumps on the back of their heads go in and buy new helmets.
I never wear my instructor parka at another mountain unless maybe if-- 1) I'm going to a PSIA event and
2) I'm leaving after a shift at my home mountain. I can pack for two days of skiing in my boot bag as long as I wear the parka/shell I'm going to ski in. Why have to pack a second bag just because I want to change my parka?
I used to smoke and could care less if other people smoke as long as I don't have to smell it. Please spend 20 minutes observing prevailing wind currents and move to an appropriate place at least 100 yards downwind before lighting up.
I agree about people who power wedge their kids down blacks when they could be on greens actually learning how to ski.
