There is no sugar-coating it—winter in Canada is cold! But don’t let that scare you away. As long as you’re prepared, the cold will not put a damper on your experience. Just know from the get-go that you will not be packing a small overnight bag for this road-trip. No, for this trip you will need the big suitcase.
You want to be prepared to come against temperatures as low as -30o C. This means layers. Gloves, socks, toques and neck-warmers—if you have room to bring extras, bring them. You want to have the option to cover up all exposed skin so don’t forget the balaclavas and goggles or sunglasses. Along with your warmest jacket, snow pants and boots, you will be ready to face the cold and have an amazing time doing it.
Oh I almost forgot… Hand-warmers! Lots and lots of hand-warmers.
