 Tips: Layering is key to staying warm, but not overheating. Although it will be cold out, once you start moving around a lot you will warm up, by sweating you will then get cold because you are wet, it’s a vicious cycle. Start with light weight thermal layer (Long underwear, or something like ‘Under Armor’). Add a long sleeved shirt or pull over too that, then go for a fleece jacket, then a water proof shell on top of that. You can always remove one of those if you get too hot.
