Weather and Clothing

travelers relaxing in Nome

Summertime: comfort requires a windproof jacket with a warm shirt or sweater for the 40-degree days. Warm and windproof clothing is advised. Layers keep in the most warmth, while allowing a way to respond to changes in the temperature. Rubber-soled, waterproof footwear is essential.

Fall/Winter/Spring: long underwear, warm slacks and shirt, wool sweater, and a thick down jacket are necessary. A warm, windproof covering for head and hands is essential.
