COLD Weather – How to Stay Olympics Warm!!!

COLD Weather – How to Stay Olympics Warm!!!


Hi! This is Amy Moncure and today we’re the Hwacheon ice fishing festival and the Gangwon-do province, which is the same province of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics will be held. Hwacheon is about 60 miles or 100 kilometers away from Pyeongchang. And so the weather and conditions will be quite similar. Today it is 7 degrees Fahrenheit or
negative 14 degrees Celsius. So really, this gives us a great opportunity to do a trial run of our Olympic gear. Some of the things that were wins: Definitely we need a hat and a scarf or something for your face so that you can keep your face covered because especially if you are in the Alpine events and the evening and like we are for snowboarding, you want to make sure that most of your face is covered. Personally I like to wear two coats, because what I have found is that the restaurants and buses and train stations are incredibly warm. And so I just start peeling off layers. But as soon as you get up outside, it’s quite cold and you’ll want to zip all that up. Also I like to have my fleece line leggings underneath my corduroys and my snow boots along with my smart wool socks. I always make sure I have hand warmers and one of the things I would have changed, I also would have brought feet warmers. now if you’re in the Gangneung area for the coastal cluster, because it’s right next to the coast, the temperature is a little bit more moderate. So you won’t need to have all the gear, but if you’re prepared for the Alpensia Mountain Cluster events, you’ll certainly be prepared for Gangneung as well. See you 18 days! Cheers! I was prepared for ice fishing except my feet were frozen. I will share my layers, and…. what I will do differently to prevent frozen feet. Light Core Layers for indoors. Uniqlo Thermal Undershirt.
