Winter = Cold and nothing is worse than having to cut a session on the slopes short because you are feeling chilly. If only you knew of a way on how to stay warm in winter.
Well, most likely you already do, but just in case you forgot here are 7 amazing ways to beat the chill and heat yourself up so you can enjoy the snow even more.
How to stay warm in Winter
#1 Layer up
Lots of people think that buying the warmest jacket out there is the best way to stay warm. Obviously, it will be nice but in most cases, you will also find that jackets like that are quite bulky.
So instead consider layering up. 1 or 2 shirts, 2 jumpers, and a windproof jacket can keep your upper body nice and toasty. This is because warm air gets caught in between the layers.
Best of all if you start getting too hot while enjoying the snow you can take a layer or 2 off and continue on with your day.
#2 Wear a beanie
Or something similar to a beanie. Anything to put over your head. After all a huge portion of warm escapes from your noggin.
#3 Wear waterproof gloves and shoes
Seriously, nothing worse than walking around in wet shoes, or just as bad putting your hands into wet gloves. Get waterproof shoes and gloves so that you can play around in the pow but not have to worry about the consequences.
Best thing is that these days you can buy waterproof sprays that will really put a nice layer on top of your gear and keep everything nice and dry.
