I spent Christmas this year in Breckridge, Colorado where it was -7° during the day. Even living in New York these past three years, I haven't experienced such cold temperatures. Totally worth it! I was lucky enough to snowboard three days in Breckenridge and one in Vail. Our day in Vail was probably the best snowboarding I've ever done in my life. It snowed the entire night before, so by morning we had blankets of powder to shred. So lucky.
