Ziplining through Whistler's stunning landscapes in cold, snowy, and sometimes wet weather is an incredible experience, but dressing right is crucial for comfort and enjoyment.
With chilly winds, falling snow, and lower temperatures, it's essential to choose attire that keeps you warm without restricting your movements.
Here is Ziptrek's comprehensive guide on what to wear for ziplining in Whistler's cold weather:
Start with a moisture-wicking base layer, such as thermal tops and bottoms, to manage sweat effectively and keep your body dry.
Add an insulating layer like a fleece or down jacket for warmth. Opt for thinner, warm materials that allow for flexibility. Similar to when you are skiing in Whistler.
Choose a sturdy, windproof, and waterproof jacket and pants designed for outdoor activities. All of Ziptrek Whistler's adventures involve walking between ziplines, so prioritize breathable fabrics for mobility. If you are planning to ski in Whistler, just wear your ski gear.
Keep your head warm with a thermal hat or beanie, we recommend ones without pompoms so they can fit under your helmet comfortably. Insulated and waterproof gloves or mittens are essential for warmth.
Choose closed-toe shoes or boots with excellent traction and ankle support, ensuring comfort while navigating various terrains. Showing less skin is key to staying warm and dry, so no vans and cuffed pants.
Consider adding a neck gaiter, balaclava, or scarf for added warmth around your neck and face. Sunglasses can protect your eyes from the wind and glare during the ziplining adventure. Ski goggles are also a great option!
Always check the Whistler weather forecast before your ziplining adventure. Dress according to the expected conditions and prepare for potential changes.
Being dressed appropriately not only ensures comfort but also enhances safety and enjoyment during your Ziptrek adventure in Whistler's colder climate.
Embrace the thrill of zooming through the crisp air and enjoy being amongst the snowy treetops while staying warm and cozy!
