Tubing can be rather chilly and it makes it a much more enjoyable experience if you dress for the weather. You can bundle yourself up like the Michelin Man, just like your mom did for you when you were a kid, or take advantage of the new technology in outdoor wear. The goal is to stay warm and dry, so cotton (gets cold and wet) is not recommended.
- Dress in layers with a wicking layer close to your skin, a polarfleece sweater and waterproof/windproof jacket on top.
- Wear flannel pajamas or long underwear under insulated water resistant pants on the bottom.
- On your feet, wear wool socks and comfortable insulated boots (not ski boots) that can be securely fastened.
- Wear a close fitting hat that won’t fall off as you’re sliding.
- Goggles and a scarf or neck warmer aren’t a bad idea if it is snowing or especially cold.
- Mittens are warmer than gloves, and make sure they are insulated and waterproof.
- Hats, gloves, neckwarmers and handwarmers are available at the Tubing Company, along with some fun logo’d sweatshirts and t-shirts.
