Ahh, once you get some layers on and go out there it's not bad at all. I usually end up sweating and dropping layers after 3-4 holes. Nothing like really feeling like a disc golf addict when you're out in over a foot of snow, shoveling the tee pads! I was playing in well over a foot of snow two weeks ago before some of it melted, still 8-10" now.
LAYERS for sure. Playing in the elements helps me with my game because a steady hand is a must when trying to gain footing on an ice ridden tee-pad. I try to get out at least twice a week. I live in Kalamazoo, MI. We are lucky to have odd weather. For example it rained yesterday. So today, NO SNOW! But it is cold. I layer up and launch em. Get out there and keep an eye on your disc and it will be as fulfilling as any other discing day.
Long Johns for sure with multiple layers of clothes, hand warmers and good socks and boots. Always have extra socks in case they get wet. Wet feet=cold feet. Play Disc Golf all year long. No fair weather players here.
Haha. Agreed with Chuck Kennedy. Us Minnesotans aren't afraid of winter! A few weeks back, people couldn't even get up to the parking lot in the park because the hill going up to the parking lot was all iced over. When that's the case, we park down on the road and walk up. Nothing stops us from playing (ok, maybe lightning and tornado sirens). We have been averaging around 50 at our weekly Saturday winter singles league, the ChillyDog We even get out for rec rounds on occasion. We have at least 2 singles leagues, one being night golf. We also have a dubs league, andChuck just started up the first ever Super Class league!
Wear layers. If the snow is wet, throw on some gore-tex or other waterproof pants! This also allows one to slide down hills on a disc without getting wet. Let your discs sit outside to acclimatize before you play so that the snow won't stick.
How I cope? I hang out at my buddy's disc golf store, Fairway Flyerz, chat with him and my other friends that come to hang out, and putt on any of his 10 or so baskets until my heart is content!
