Clothing: WINTER GEAR IS A MUST! coats, hats, gloves! Most of this program is OUTSIDE at the top of a 9,157-foot mountain, after dark! The domes are open and it gets COLD! You may be accustomed to very cold temperatures but you're probably not accustomed to standing still in them for long periods of time. The mindset you need is to put 10 inches between your skin and the outside world - we make Alaskans cold! Please be responsible, bring warm clothing so that you can enjoy your experience. LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS!
