The key to having a perfect winter holiday is planning. If you’re thinking of skiing, ice skating, snowmobiling or ice climbing in Cody and the nearby areas, then preparation is key. This is a key holiday travel season, so it’s best to make travel plans and book accommodation early. If you can travel in early December or early January instead of the peak Christmas period, then you might make some savings.
One of the most important things is to have the right clothing. It may be cold outside but that doesn’t mean that you have to freeze. Long underwear (top and bottom), wool or wool blend turtleneck sweaters and socks, ski pants, warm hats and gloves will make the difference between icy misery and a wonderful time. A lightweight, water-repellent parka will top off your outfit.
Check the options for eating near where you are staying. You might want to prepare your own food, but if you don’t you will need plenty of variety. In Cody’s restaurants, you can enjoy not just steaks (this is cattle country), but wonderful cuisine from around the world.
Finally, make sure you take any essential medications and an ATM or credit card. That way you will be prepared for any emergency that might arise.
