9 Items You Need to Keep Warm

It’s hard to enjoy the winter when you’re cold. Follow these steps to stay warm and enjoy being outside this winter.

1. Good Base Layer – These are my two favorites.

SmartWool Thermal Long Underwear-Merino 250 Base Layer-tops and bottoms

Hot Chillys Base Layer – Hot Chillys Peppers Bi-Ply Base Layer-tops and bottoms

2. Mid Layer Top – A sweatshirt or fleece top like these:

The North Face Powder Guide Midlayer

32 Degrees – FAUX CASHMERE PULLOVER WITH SHERPA LINING

3. Mid Layer Bottoms – Either snow pants or lined windproof pants.

Klim Transition Pant

Swix Lillehammer Pants

The North Face – Powder Guide Pants

4. Socks – SmartWool hands done are my favorite socks. All styles.

SmartWool PhD Ski Light Socks

SmartWool PhD Ski Medium Socks

5. Shoes

Bogs – Classic Ultra High Insulated Boots

Sorels – Women’s Winter Carnival or Women’s Caribou Boot

6. Hat – Any hat is better than no hat.  I have many, but here are the two warmest.

The North Face – Women’s Fuzzy Earflap Beanie

Carhartt – Acrylic Watch Hat

7. Gloves

The North Face-Denali Thermal Etip Glove

Dakine – Sequoia Insulated Mittens – Don’t underestimate the warmth of mittens. I swear they keep your hands warmer, especially when you drop a Hot Hands hand warmer in them.

8. Scarf – The multi use miracle warmer 🙂 Cover your neck, face, or ears. Don’t leave home without one.

Pistil-Frenchi Infinity Scarf (check out their hats as well)

9. Hot Hands – Hand and foot warmers. These stay warm for up to 8 hours and are a lifesaver.

Sledding

5 Sledding Hills in the Salt Lake Valley

Make some memories and enjoy the snow at these 5 sledding hills in the Salt Lake Valley

 

 1. Sugarhouse Park-

The sledding hill is located on the south, west corner of the park. Enter on 2100 south and follow the loop around. You won’t miss seeing the hill. There are hay bails at the bottom of the hill for sledders safety.

2. Flat Iron Mesa Park-

This is not a large park. The hill is on the north side and very visible.

3. Eastridge Park-12151 S 1000 E, Sandy, UT 84020

Park on 1000 east. The hill is on the south end of the park and is easily seen from the street.

4. Creekside Park (Big Cottonwood Regional Park)-1664 E Murray Holladay Rd, Salt Lake City, UT 84117

This park is easily accessed from Murray Holladay Rd. There is a great pavilion, so bring some hot chocolate and enjoy the hill.

5. Mountain View Park-

This is a newer park and is fantastic year around. Enter off of Fort Union Blvd. The sledding hill is on the south end of the park.

 

Now, Go. See. Do.
