Here is what you need to know if you're from Cali and you plan to visit Winnipeg in the midst of winter: Thinsulate.

Buy a ski/snowboard jacket insulated with Thinsulate or one of the copycat clothing insulation products. Buy a higher end jacket that features taped seams. I prefer Helly Hansen stuff but Burton and others make good mid-priced jackets as well.

Dress in layers.

Buy a lined toque...


A scarf will help as well, as will lined gloves/mitts. Did I mention you should also dress in layers?

Don't bother renting a car, a cab will do. Stay at the Fairmont.
