Should have worn 2 pair of wind briefs...

I skied Riverside again today - didn't feel like driving to Pineland, wasn't confident of the conditions at Twin Brook, and I thought the sun would feel better than shade. Got in 20K, which is a pretty good start on my goal of a big weekend (maybe 70K over 3 days). I waited until it warmed up to double digits, which it did, barely. Up top I had my Craft Pro wind top, a smartwool zip-T, and my trusty (buy one of these) SportHill Explorer II top. Down below I had my Craft wind briefs, Sugoi mid-zero tights, and Craft zip pants. By my third lap, I knew I should have doubled up on the wind briefs : (.


  1. This post horrifies me...only because it brings back painful memories.

  2. We've had similar multiple wind brief days here in Hayward, WI, home of the American Birkebeiner xc ski marathon, and points north. January ski races were COLD! Here's what we came up with. Take a Look. This and one pair of wind briefs should do it. Warm where you need it, without all the extra bulk. Would love your feedback as a New England skier.
