Multiple layers are your best bet for staying warm. Your winter camping packing list should include a wool-base layer with fleece, flannel or down as a secondary layer should guarantee you a toasty, warm vacation! We recommend SmartWool products.
Snow pants and jackets
You will probably do most of your activities in snow pants and jackets, including horseback riding.
Wool layers and socks
Multiple layers are your best bet for staying warm. A wool-base layer with fleece, flannel or down as a
secondary layer should guarantee you a toasty, warm vacation! We recommend SmartWool products.
Snow gloves or mittens with a waterproof outer shell
Fleece is only comfortable when it’s dry, so fleece gloves are not a good option for snow play.
If you prefer something thinner to ride in, we recommend Burton glove liners, which provide some
and warmth without the bulk of a ski or snowboard glove.
(Insulated Boots Recommended)
You’ll be doing just about everything in snow boots. We recommend Sorel or North Face boots.
(Please note: UGG boots are very fashionable, and most people love that they have a wonderful shearling
but their soles are slick and provide limited traction, thus making them impractical for walking around
In addition, UGG boots are not waterproof.)
You’ll use these for a myriad of ranch activities, including for tubing and sledding, dog sledding, snowmobiling, etc.
Warm hats, scarves, headbands and balaclava
Make sure your hat covers your ears!
Paws Up provides:
Ice skates and hockey skates (and hockey sticks!)
Non-insulated slickers for riding (such as windbreakers)
