Cool Weather Climbing Tips
By The Adventure Park Team
The wind whipping your hair back, a cool breeze hitting your skin, the sun setting in the distance, and colorful leaves below your feet – this is what you’ll experience when ziplining in the Fall. As warm, sunny days transition to cooler autumn nights, there’s nothing like ziplining on a cool, crisp evening.
Before joining us for an exciting day at one of our Adventure Parks, read our tips on how to climb and zipline as the weather cools down!
Layer Your Clothing
There’s always a breeze when zipping through the trees, so layering up is the way to go! You could come mid-day when it’s sunny and warm but due to the shifting weather patterns, it could cool down. Be prepared by layering up for a range of temperatures.
A cozy base layer should consist of a soft, comfortable and thin undershirt or long johns, while the insulating layer can be any loose fitting articles such as a light weight shirt or pants. Choose a wind/waterproof outer layer, such as a jacket.
- Pro tip #1: Opt for a base layer that is moisture-wicking for optimum comfort.
- Pro tip #2: Bring warm gloves on chilly days. Leather-palmed gloves are ideal for climbing.
- Pro tip #3: Secure your pockets if you plan to bring your wallet, keys, or cell phone.
Before venturing off to our trails, make sure you’re staying hydrated. Although you might not feel yourself sweating, you’ll still be using a lot of energy on the zipline and ropes course. Stay hydrated to avoid fatigue or muscle cramps.
