Here are some tips on how to dress when coming to Alaska in the winter. Remember: Dress in layers.

Breathable microfiber or smart wool works best for your first "long john" layer.
Fleece, or yoga pants
Socks - a material that will breathe. No cotton. Sweat that chills on your skin makes you really cold. Brrrrr.
Over pants - thin rain/windproof or thicker ski, snowboard, snowmachine pants.
Hat, scarf, ski gloves.
Sunglasses - sun on the white snow is really bright.
Sturdy shoes, hiking boots, winter boots. Please no tennis shoes, high heels or sandals. Yes, we have seen it.
