1. Invest in some good quality, thick blankets. This will be your best friend when it comes to sitting on cold bleachers or tailgating in the snow.
2. Dress in layers. It might seem like a no-brainer, but making sure you’re properly bundled up is key to staying warm. Wear a base layer of long underwear, followed by a couple of thinner layers. top it all off with a coat, scarf, and hat.
3. Bring along some hand warmers. These little packets can be a lifesaver when your fingers start to feel numb.
4. Don’t forget the hot chocolate. Since tailgating usually involves drinking, it’s important to have something warm to balance out the alcohol. Hot chocolate is the perfect solution.
5. Take breaks indoors. If it’s too cold to handle, don’t be afraid to head inside for a bit. Most stadiums have warm areas where you can take a break from the elements.
6. Plan ahead. Make sure you know where you’re tailgating and how to get there before the game. This will help you avoid any stressful situations when you’re trying to find your way around in the cold.
7. And finally, don’t forget to have fun!
When the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fall, some people are content to stay indoors. But for others, cold weather is just another excuse to get together and have some fun. If you’re planning on tailgating in the snow, there are a few things you can do to make sure you have a good time and stay warm.
First, dress in layers. You’ll want to have a base layer of clothing to wick away sweat, a middle layer for insulation, and a waterproof outer layer. Don’t forget to wear a hat and socks, and consider adding a scarf or face mask to protect against the cold.
Second, bring a source of heat. A small space heater can go a long way towards making your tailgating spot comfortable. If you’re using a gas grill for cooking, you can also use it to warm up your hands and feet.
With a little preparation, tailgating in the snow can be a great way to enjoy the winter weather.
