  • Limited to 14 slots

  • When registering, please make sure to include your cell phone number and email address that you can be reached at for timely updates

Please Note: The weather will be anywhere between 30 in the day to 5 below at night (excluding wind chill factors) 

Although every night we will be in well-heated lodges and cabins we will be,

  • Hunting for the northern lights, which means we will be outdoors for sometime at below zero temp.
  • BBQing nightly (right outside the cabin).
  • Outdoor bonfires and kumzitz under the billion star studded sky. 

…. therefore, the key is to dress in layers – that you can put on or take off as needed.

    1. Comfortable and warm active clothing; NO cotton. (Preferably layered… ie. sweatshirt over flannel shirt over thermal shirt and pants….)
    2. Wool socks
    3. Undergarments- long thermal as well.
    4. Hand and foot warmers (if you need).
    5. Siddur, Talis & Tefillin.
    6. Personal hygiene, teeth hygiene, (the lodge has towels, soap and shampoo).
    7. Warm sweatshirt, sleeping and/ or lounge clothing and footwear for lodge.
    8. Bathing suit, robe and crocs for hot tub and sauna.
    9. Goggles for a Snocross helmet (ski googles that are on the smaller side, will work, preferably not dark lenses. Also if you have, bring 2 goggles).
  1. Parka with hood
  2. Snow pants (bib)
  3. Boots
  4. Gloves
  5. Hat/ gaiter/ baklava
