Remember when you’d go outside as a little kid and right before you went out the door, your mom would stop you and make you put on a hat, gloves, and anything else she could think of? She was smart, as silly as all those accessories might have felt. Bundling up helps to seal off those little cracks where snow can get in under all those layers. Gloves that come up a little high over your wrists, scarves tucked in under your jacket and a hat underneath that hood help trap all that warm body heat and keep snow and wind out. They really make a difference, so don’t skip them!
Best Foot Forward
Like I said before, the goal is to keep warmth in and snow out, so if you’ve got a layer of jeans or fleece-lined pants under your snow pants, make sure to tuck those into your boots to keep the snow out! Pass on the ankle socks and opt for mid-calf or knee socks to keep in the heat as much as possible. Also, if your shoes are big enough, try more than one pair of socks or insulated, thick ones instead! These socks are fleece lined but not super thick, which is great if your shoes fit a little more snug.
