Yellowstone in Winter - Help Clueless Floridians Get Dressed

Jump to last reply

OK, you may know from a couple previous threads that we Floridians are toying with the idea of spending a winter vacation in Yellowstone. We are not winter sports fans, so as you might expect, there is nothing in our closets that really would be considered appropriate... need some advice on how to dress for success, so to speak.

Specifically, DH and I are stuck on the base layer - second layer - outer layer options. We have managed good insulated winter boots and socks, hats, and maybe gloves. We have different concepts of what else to wear (DH is from NE Ohio originally, and maybe has some ideas that pre-date modern fabrics..) We do know not to wear jeans.

This stuff is expensive, and we may get minimal use out of it aside from this vacation.. Can anybody give me some direction on specific brands, etc? And is silk base layer (for me) worth considering at all? Was thinking that if I could target some items and wait for late Christmas sales, that might be a plan.

We'll be there in late January, 5 days in West Yellowstone (timeshare for budget reasons) and 2 days at the Snow Lodge. No snowmobiling. Would like to try snowshoes, will be on foot in snow, and 2 snowcoach tours (Canyon and full moon at night from Snow Lodge).

Any tidbits of wisdom or specific product/brand recommendations are so welcome.
