I saw a couple using yarn on their discs and thought, "that looks like a bad idea".

My buddy and I ended up playing through them when they were trying to retrieve a disc that had gotten hung up in a tree because of the yarn.
Are you taping the ribbon to the rim or the center or does it matter?

Christmas ribbon can be on top or bottom of the disc but it must be on center.

Thin rubbery gloves are great for winter discgolf. something like http://static1.motonet.fi/img/3/392074/500/392074.jpg
Take size that fits tight. They grip well on any plastic type.
Then huge mittens that fit on top of those.

firm vp's come out and mediums go in. I take out high speed drivers. I put in light weight gummy champ leopards and a medium weight s-fd. I end up throwing those for most of my drives.

Take out your money putter! It is the only disc in your bag that is supposed to come into contact with something on every hole, and that something just so happens to be stiff, cold, unyielding metal. The temperature drop makes everything stiffer, the metal on the basket, the plastic your putter is made out of. Putters can easily split or crack when exposed to the elements and then bashed repeatedly into cold metal. Replace your putters with gummier, softer plastic. The gummy plastic will stiffen up from the cold and you won't notice the softness as much.

Also remove all KC pro plastic, PERIOD! These break more than any.

Also remove any old CE plastic, especially the opaque kind. These older runs of plastic are known for having bubbles in the mold and the weaknesses will be exposed by the cold. My friend learned this lesson the hard way recently when he snapped his '01 USDGC roc in half (and it wasn't even that cold). There's about 400 smackaroos gone to the disc golf gods.

Anything past that is preference. Hot hands, gloves, thermal underwear, all of these will become your new friends.

I throw an all Vibram bag for the winter. Although that's not much of a change because, even though my bag changes a lot, it is usually 50-100% Vibram anyways.
