[IP] testing in cold weather



To enjoy all the New England snow this year, Lauren and Megan started
skiing lessons today.  How do skiers handle testing outside in cold
weather?  I sent Lauren off today with pockets filled with airheads and
Gu, but no meter.  I doubt she would take the time to come all the way
back to test everytime she should.  I trust that she'll treat a low while
skiing if she feels it, but I'd like to know how her blood sugar is doing
to see how to adjust her basals.  Even just playing outside, sometimes
she is too far from a warm enough place to test when she needs to.  Any
suggestions?
Thanks

turned 5
