Set yourself up for success when visiting us this winter by making sure you have some basics before you arrive!
- Tire Chains are a requirement when traveling in the winter months! While you may not have to install them during your trip, it's possible that you will encounter a chain checkpoint. Since travelers are required to have chains in their vehicles during the winter months they may have to show them to highway patrol to proceed on mountain roads. Do not leave this one to the last minute as you could find yourself stranded without the proper equipment.
- Snow Gear is a must when you're planning on winter fun, but keep in mind that we are a small community with no major department store. Snow boots, pants, and bibs may need to be obtained ahead of time. If you're not interested in renting gear, or you want to hunt for a deal, plan ahead. Local shops like Goldsmiths will be able to help you with renting boards, skis, and other equipment.
- Travel warm! Just in case of delays, emergencies, or an accident, having extra supplies is a great idea. Pack a few extra blankets and some water for your trip. It's never a bad idea to be prepared!
