Winter Preparedness:  

It’s still possible to recreate and enjoy the outdoors even in the chilly Montana winters! Here are some tips for preparing yourself well for a safe and fun time in the snow :) 

Layering for the unexpected:  

  • As a general rule, it is always wise to bring along many more layers than you may initially think necessary.  
  • Avoiding cotton and constricting clothing will serve you well as you get clothing sweaty and allow for adequate blood flow which is crucial in keeping warm. 
  • Mittens, hats, and extra socks will ensure that you are preventing any unnecessary heat loss as well as keeping you dry, functional and happy!
