This is the first winter for me. I'm pleased to say I've been out quite a few times, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
The bullet points of winter DG have been made, it's not that hard.
The friend that got me into this sport has been yelling at me to stop all winter. Say's I won't be able to play in the spring, I'll hurt myself, everybody stops playing.
He understands what I know, and that's I don't plan on having any rust to shake off this year.
I just got two rolls of +33 tape from 3m...if I use ribbons this year, I'm ready! Also, I'm only down one disc this winter, and I hated it anyways, so i gave it to the dude that found it!

Not many weekend days do I pass on throwing discs this time of year, but today is one of them. I've been fighting a nasty cold this week and don't feel like shoveling in order to go play in -10F wind chill.

Tomorrow it will be cold also, but another day to recover and get the driveway shoveled and I'll be ready to throw.

I've played all winter for many years and live in Minnesota. I lose far fewer discs in the winter than in the summer. Ribbons generally suck, my rules are to watch closely, play with others, in deep snow one person spots and use bright colors and soft plastics. That's about it. One last thing, dress warm especially around the wrists and ankles. In summer overuse problems are more common and in winter wipeouts and not being flexible due to not being warmed up cause more issues. Other than that have fun!

No no no. You have to understand what I said, "Spray the area where your disc is going to land..."

When your disc lands where it lands, that's where it lands.

I think we're confusing "land" with "come to rest"

We just got about 6” of fresh snow yesterday. For league today I decided to empty my bag of my “normal” lineup and fill it with discs I haven’t thrown in a while or ones I’ve been wanting to try out. It was a great opportunity to throw some different plastic and I actually shot one of my better rounds in a while. We didn’t lose anything but if I had it wouldn’t have been one of my go-to staples.

My friend and I spot each other on days when there's fresh snow. Slows the round down, but neither of us are chasing scores or anything on a snow day
