Okay, those sound unbeatable! But I do have a couple runners up: -My sister and I took a trip to Killington about 15 years ago. It was way below zero, and we didn't have good ski gear. So we ended up at the hotel, hanging out in the hot tub, for almost the entire trip! -Two years ago, during our Spring Fling, it rained on us the entire day! But I was having so much fun that I stayed out anyway, in my Predator Jacket, which kept me nice and dry... -It's really darn cold today, that's all I have to say!!

snowboarding several years ago in negative 40 with the windchill. i don't remember how fast the wind was, but it was whipping. i was wearing a smart-wool face mask that would freeze to my face on the chairlifts, and then my sweat and breath would defrost it on the way down, only to refreeze on the way back up. it was really not fun.
For me the worst was the day we were skiing in late February, and were coming in a bit late, and it had been warm that day, but was freezing up, so under the trees it was turning from mush to ice. I was railing (yes, this was XC) and wanted to get out of the rails, as I stepped out, the tail of the ski caught on the ice, I twisted a 180, only my ankle bone apparantly couldn't keep up, and it broke! Ruined my Big Sky ski trip a couple weeks later too! Can't ski on crutches while waiting for the swelling to go down so I could have the surgery! I did get a massage at the spa though, so it wasn't a total loss.

One spring we went to Shasta very late in the season. There was not much snow left at all. We went down a trail and it turned to dirt and we were stuck! We ended up having to take off our skis and walk up to get to a different trail that had snow. It was very frustrating!
