How to Dress

In the mountains, dressing in layers is always the best strategy – think a t-shirt, a light sweater, and a good wind and water proof jacket. Natural fibers can be more comfortable for the range of temperatures you can experience in the course of the day. Good hiking shoes are necessary if you are going to be doing any adventuring and running shoes are great for exploring the town or walking riverside trails.
