Even though northern Minnesota winters can be very cold, the sun reflecting off the snow will be exceedingly bright. Protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays is just as important in the winter months as it is in the summer. To keep yourself safe and comfortable on sunny days, try to wear a hat or hood with a brim and/or sunglasses. Taking this simple step can make your dog sledding adventure much more enjoyable but remember that the most important part of choosing a hat is for warmth. We recommend applying sunscreen to your face and lips as well as coming prepared with protective head gear.
