Well since I live in the north of Sweden. Im just going to keep my mouth shut.
In a while it gets impossible to play disc golf.


This is how it starts, then all of a sudden you have snow to your waist and the basket is covered in white powder.

This is just a B.A. picture plain and simple. Also, living in WI we get a nice amount of snow, but I GUARANTEE if, but more appropriately, when it looks like that this guy will NOT be playing!

yeah, when the baskets are covered it's probably time to set up a sheet in the garage to practice driving into.. or the portable in another room and try shaping shots through the doorway.

Also I saw someone bitching about it being 50-55??? Really? We were out throwing yesterday when it was 40 and the only things different were that I wear a smartwool base layer, much better/warmer than most UA products and smart wool socks, not even sure why I had them on, but warm feet usually keeps me warm. In the coldest parts of winter I'll wear smartwool "tights" also. It really is all about having a warm base layer and layering. I keep thinking of getting a down "sweater", those seem light and warm enough to throw in. It's freezing drizzle out there now.

Here in Tejas. I'll get some hoodies and a windbreaker. Some warm socks are nice too. I'll also switch to my Vibram bag and I'll switch from beer to bourbon.

Moisture wicking warm undergarments, extra pair of socks, goretex shoes, and a quality beanie. (DD drifit beanie FTW!) If it's too cold for that stuff to keep me warm I'm going to get back in bed and have dreams of spring disc golf.

This is good, a great base model for those planning to throw in the winter.

Under armor or similar wicking base layer. Carpenter pants. Gaters over my hiking boots and pants bottoms to stay dry in the snow drifts. Base layer top (wicking) and hoodie (t shirt as well if it is really cold). I never wear a coat when throwing. Layers is the key. I usually carry some gloves or preferrably mittens with me to keep my off hand warm. Hand warmers in my hoodie pocket for my throwing hand. Lots of micro fiber towels to keep my discs dry and not just push the water around. beanie hat for my big bald head.
**** that, then you can learn leftie.

I have a few piles of hand warmers myself, and of course beer.
