    Helping Boots and Mitts for WARMTH!!

    Love to hear from someone using boot gloves. One of my friends swears by them. They are short money so I may give them a try on the coldest of days. May look a little dumb, but if I enjoy the day more, that's all that matters!

    sub par ???

    J's comments are spot-on. The longer I ski, the more I realize there are several different interest camps, from family groomers, to steep marked, to slack country to BC and everywhere inbetween. I sure hope the glory days of online TRs are not over. I need them living down in the flatlands...
