    great, be sure to put up some pics.
    housing anywhere near a resort in colorado is sky high. I've decided when I make the move, housing around park city or sun valley is much more reasonable.

    wow, they are proud of that stuff, makes north face, columbia and stuff look reasonably priced. I would think about some snow ski gear, it's perfect for us wheelers, lightweight, waterproof, and made for extreme cold. ski gear has to be manueverable, so it doesn't interfer with pushing a chair.

    Glad I was able to resurrect this website for you. I am GJ. GL is a moderator. No worries, we are often confused.

    All the best,

    These are the notes I when I was looking at a year or two ago:

    · https://www.topmobility.com/PersonalCare-11.htm
    ·
    · http://www.silverts.com/wheelchair-clothing/ capes, pants
    · * http://www.familyvillage.wisc.edu/at...-clothing.html list of other sites,
    · http://www.adaptiveclothingshowroom....tml?c84.html&1 fully visiting leg openings could just sit on and close
    · http://www.nursinghomeapparel.com/sh...r_Ponchos.html
    ○ 175, green, no arms http://www.silverts.com/show.cfm/pro...cho-lined-cape
    ○ 70 black http://www.nursinghomeapparel.com/shop/product312.html
    ○ 55 pullover http://www.topmobility.com/WheelchairPoncho~details~1756.htm
    ○ 56 green, warm http://www.careapparel.com/index.php...roducts_id=735


    I ended up getting the top mobility pullover, I think, and had a tailor make a slit in it so I didn't have to mess with trying to get it over my head. Not struggling to get my arm in the sleeves every time I go at is very nice. It is cut short in the back so you don't sit on it and get pressure problems. I found it pretty warm, although I don't know if it would interfere with pushing.

    I haven't worn a coat for years because it would be too hard to get on and off. I use a down jacket or even more often I use a down vest because then my arms do not get ensnared in the sleeves.

    Down sweater

    I'm in Colorado, and this is plenty warm, and short enough to keep away from the wheels.
