  • Hat – if your head is warm the rest of you is likely to stay warm.
  • Waterproof Gloves/Mittens – mittens are warmest. For the tow rope the best is leather garbage mitts or glove protectors on your regular mitts. Both are available at our rental shop for sale.
  • Goggles/Sunglasses – Goggles are strongly recommended on cold or snowy days for warmth and increased visibility.
  • Jacket/Parka (water resistant)
  • Synthetic or wool base layers for top & bottom – it’s better to be warm than cold, you can always shed layers. Synthetic materials help to wick moisture away from your skin. Once again, do not wear cotton as a base layer.
