Keep Warm and Dry
- Listen for the windchill index with the weather forecast. The index likens the way your skin feels to the temperature on a calm day. For example, if the outside temperature is -10°C and the wind chill is -20°C, it means that your face will feel as cold as it would on a calm day when the temperature is -20°C.
- Dress in breathable layers to keep warm and avoid overheating.
- Wear a hat. Most of your body heat is lost through your head.
- Wear warm, waterproof boots, roomy enough to allow wiggle room for your toes.
