The weather this winter has been both a blessing and a curse for skiing. Three times now I’ve had to cancel ski trips because it was bitter cold. I was all set to head up to Copper Mountain tomorrow, but NOAA says this about conditions:

Snow showers likely with areas of blowing snow. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 10. Wind chill values as low as -35. Windy, with a northwest wind between 31 and 36 mph, with gusts as high as 55 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Fresh powder is always a bonus, but a wind chill of 35 below zero? Brrr.
