From the South....
I feel for yall up North. We can only ski between April/May til about early October. Short sleeves or a light jacket are normal on Christmas Break but we do get rather chilly in January and February (20's and 30's).
PLEASE don't get mad at this, I lived for a year in Detroit and froze my a** off with 17 below zero blizzards and snow storms. I hope I brought a grin (evil or otherwise) to you.
