I understand your self fashion comment about the tacky look
but when I see people in the base lodge dressed in snowmobile clothes on a cold day it tells me that these are people that are experienced and prepared for the cold.
It's the kids with mountain bike helmets and mb goggles with bandanas for a face mask that worry me.
Today it's very cold at the Bush and MRG. Started the day at -15F high of -4F, -21F with wind chill. Looks like it's abit windier on the UC side of Mt Mansfield at -42F with wind chill this morning. Probaby not much warmer on the Stowe size.
