What to Wear at the New Hampshire Ice Castles
You are not Elsa. The cold will bother you. Dress appropriately for an outdoor winter activity. Bundle up with a hat, scarf, gloves and snow pants if you have them. Invest in hand warmers. You will regret it otherwise. I brought hot packs and stuck them in my shoes for the ultimate comfort while we walked around in the snow. Best decision.
