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!
