Helpful Hints to Stay Warm

3-layer approach

  1. Insulating (middle layer that keeps the cold out and warmth in)
  2. Protection (exterior layer to guard against elements)


  • Loose Insulating layer allowing a full range of movement
  • Long underwear & footless tights
  • Wool or acrylic socks
  • Goggles. Wearing eye protection with UV


  • Cotton. It will absorb sweat and make you shiver.
  • Bulky insulating layer
  • Wearing more than one pair of socks can lead to unwanted blisters, restrict circulation and result in cold feet.
  • Long scarves
