How Cold is Too Cold For Skiing? is one of the most popular posts at braveskimom.com, with good reason.
Skiing is a winter sport and there are days when the temperatures dip to crazy lows. Children are more susceptible to cold, which means parents need to pay attention, even when the sun is shining.
Yet, if you plan ahead and dress for cold weather success, you’ll be surprised how warm you and your children will be even when the thermometer dips well below freezing.
