Paddling Clothing in Snow
Posted by: ShadyClip on Feb-09-13 3:22 PM (EST) Category: Other Gear
It has been too many years since I went skiing (getting married and having a family killed the time for that) and of course none of my old ski clothing fits any more.
I do have lots of paddling clothes -- paddling pants and jackets, fishing waders, and a farmer john wetsuit but still no dry suit. I go paddling when it is a bit cold March/April to Nov but not when there is snow on the ground or when the lakes are frozen over.
How well does paddling clothing do in the snow? Is it just a matter of having the right underwear on under it?
I was thinking about taking the family snow tubing this weekend at a nearby mountain for a few hours and don't feel like buying new ski pants or a jacket when I feel like my paddling clothing should keep me dry (might look odd in green fishing waders instead of the typical black ski pants but old enough not to give a damn).
