    It's fucking freezing mate. :lol:
    I reckon in 20 years of skiing that it's the coldest I've ever been. Probably minus 20-30 on the long chair lift, there were 3 foot horizontal icicles on the pylons.

    Going next April. Never been before but will be having lessons at X-Scape in Castleford for a few months before and then do the lessons when I’m over there.

    EDIT: you lucky bastard, I got mixed up there. :lol:
    That was Sunshine at Banff.
    Snowmass is fucking tropical compared to that. It's a nice area but if you get the chance from there go to Aspen or preferably Vail. Vail is incredible.

    Did Killington on the east coast and Tremblant in Canada, again east coast (ish) which were both cold. Always found Rockies and west coast not too bad. I’ll not tell the mrs (no) what you’ve forecast

    Banff and the 3 resorts were ok last time I was there. Done Vail once but prefer Breckenridge.

    It's actually not that expensive any more for me..not that i am very good mind, compared to all the little kids who zip by me..but once i hit 60 there were great deals on midweek lift tickets and Lake louise Nakiska and Sunshine are only 90 minutes away..pretty empty hills midweek when the schools are in as well

    I know..some days just go out on my own and stand at the top of the hill..even when its bitter cold as long as there's no wind it's an amazing feeling.

    then i fall over
