We are planning a winter trip to Jackson Hole, albeit in Dec this year, but this question is applicable at any time & I thought Id ask while Im thinking about it.
I wouldnt have a clue what to wear / buy / pack !
We have never seen proper snow or a cold winter. The coldest our winters here get is about 10deg c or 50 d F, and this is a once off cold day.
ive also been to Queenstown , NZ and skiid. But it wasnt actually snowing, or that cold when you werent on the mountain- you could get away with jeans, a good jacket , scarf and any sort of boots.
Im assuming any coats or boots I buy here in West Aus are not going to cut it over there, unless I spend hundreds at specialist adventure sport stores.
Would it be wise to not bring anything "wintery" (apart from easy things we already own : jeans, jumpers, whatever boots we have etc) and get the proper stuff when we are there??
We are visiting LA and New york first... so I could pick up things there?
Ive also heard this stuff is much much cheaper in the US
But are there particular boots you'd need for just walking around in Jackson Hole? Would a good pair of leather boots cut it? or something particular to snow?
I guess all the above questions would also apply to being in New York also, if anyone has any advice on that also.
Haha sorry, just dont know where to start!
