If you don't have your costume picked out yet for Halloween, you can save money and be warm using your ski clothing. Then you will know ahead of ski season where you packed it and what shape your gear is in.
Several on-line costume idea sites recommended dressing as a sexy ski instructor. These people obviously never were smart enough to take a ski lesson. The average ski instructor will have really weird looking skin with strange tan lines. Their helmet hair will look worse than morning hair. Those soggy clothes they have been wearing on the slopes all day usually don't smell that great either. The pockets of a ski coat are stuffed to the limit with teaching tricks and food that is eaten while ridding the lift. You probably should ditch the idea of dressing as an instructor. Most folks are not giving very good tips now, anyway, with the bad economy.
Dressing as a skier will be a great money saving idea, though, and you would be warm! Leave the ski boots and ski's at home since they are so heavy to carry. Tell everyone that they are waiting in ski check or that you decided to just use the free demos being offered for the holiday. The helmet and goggles will be great protection from any wild trick or treaters. Or you can do all kinds of interesting things with that old ski mask. Don't forget to wear last years ski pass and put some white paint on your nose.
Most importantly have fun, be safe, and don't eat too much candy or you won't fit into those ski pants.
Wouldn't it be totally cool if we woke up to a white Halloween?
