A Few Tips for Staying Warm

Saturday, December 07, 2013

We want you to have the best possible time while you’re snowmobiling, and part of that is making sure you remain warm and comfortable. You probably know all about wearing layers to retain warmth and the fact that you can lose as much as 40 percent of body heat through your exposed head. Here’s a few other tips to make sure you remain primed for fun:

 

1) Eat a calorie-rich meal before you snowmobile. This will make sure your metabolism is digesting food at a time when you most need your internal furnace stoked and burning.

 

2) Drink a cold, caffeinated drink.  The cold and the caffeine will increase your heart rate, which speeds up the flow of warm blood throughout your body – heating you up from the inside out.  


3) Sprinkle absorbent powder on the areas where you sweat – feet, armpits, groin, etc. Wearing layer upon layer often leads to sweat, and using powder to soak up sweat and keep your skin dry will help keep you warm.
