I've played in temperatures down to -10 with -35 windchill and snow up to my waist, there really isn't much that will keep me from playing if I'm far from home and want to play new courses. I do switch to playing zephyr only rounds when there's deep powdery snow, they stay on top and I don't have to deal with ribbon or searching for discs.

I'll play in anything. I hate icy teepads more than anything else on that list; I really need to find my crampons.

When it gets in the single digits its just not fun anymore for me. I've done it, but didn't enjoy it.......Depth of the snow doesn't bother me, just as long as the baskets are not buried

This is my first winter. I really like playing in the 30s and 40s. Once you get moving, don't even need gloves. Upper 20s is probably the coldest so far, but I'm game to try colder if we get a chance.

Deep snow is a PITA, though. Spend way too much time looking around for entry marks. Maybe with some streamers on the discs.

I don't remember it even getting below 30 this year during the day. There might have been a few days, I don't really remember. But I've never played in the snow, so year round for me

Below about 35-40 degrees my bones start to hurt and I can't feel my hands. Texas is rough.

This may sound funny, but I think it'll make sense: I'm fine with cold (20s), but I hate playing in conditions that chill you (e.g, 20's with wind, low 30's and damp, below 20, etc). Just can't enjoy myself when I feel the kind of chill that penetrates - doesn't matter what I'm wearing.

Don't mind playing in snow (even if it's deep) as long as it's fairly dry. Once it begins to melt, things get messy and damp, and I'm not having a good time. WHne my fingers get numb and I have no feel for my disc, I'm done.

If I'm not having fun, why bother playing?

Played below freezing[handwarmer], snow and ice, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm with Martin, though, on sallying in the face of severe wet---started Milo one day and it was raining hard by #9. We finished 18 holes but the throwing was not effective.

No need for me to play in any of those conditions. No matter the weather today it will be likely be near 70 in a few days (winter in Texas is like that). I've played when it was windy and in the 50s though.
