Holy Arctic Blast! it was seriously cold today, as in -14 below with a very unpleasant 15-20 mph northeast wind. It was all about face masks and down layering. The skiing and snow quality in wind sheltered areas was near perfect, but the body just uses way too much energy to keep warm. At noon, I felt like I'd been hiking all day. Cutter and I were just beat. Took a rest in the lodge at 1:00 then headed home to thaw my poor areas.
