Moving to VT next year. Gear questions.
So I'll be going to UVM next fall. I currently live in southern CT. This season, depending on the weather, I wore either an ignant vest (with a hoodie or black raincoat underneath), or my On Deck (10k waterproofing for anyone who doesn't know). Between those two setups (plus layering) will I pretty much be good for any weather VT throws at me? Or should I grab something more waterproof? +K for helpful responses.
i dont live in vt i live in alberta and on a snowy day i like a good tech jacket but i dont have a 10k jacket so i cant tell you on that. i only have hoodies, 2k hoodies, a vest or two and a 20 k jacket
i like to play skiing
Northern Vermont gets a lot of snow (400") for the East, but also a lot of rain because of low elevation. So, one week it could be -30°F & high winds, and the next could be 35°F & raining. You'll need to have clothing that is versatile enough for those conditions. Definitely check out the Skirack when you get to town, by far one of the best shops on East. Awesome boot-fitters and lots of gear.
WE ARE SKIING.
I'm not sure where you plan on skiing, but a windy day at Jay, Killington or MRG is miserable without some nice quality layers. My advice would be to invest in something nice and ditch the hoodie over jacket layer method.
As a lifty at a east coast mountian in maine I normally have under armor heat gear tee to wick sweat away then I have a hoodie then a shell. If it gets hot I just ditch the hoodie and rock the shell. I also have a winter base layer from under armor if its going to be around 0 and below.
For pants I just wear pj pants then snow pants.
All times are Eastern (-5)
