7 ways to win at winter
Winter’s almost here — the days are shorter, the temperature’s dropping, we’ve already seen some snow and people are digging out their winter gear. If you’re ready for it, though, you’ll discover ‘worth it’ moments throughout the season.
We asked the #SAIT community for tips on how to make winter awesome — here’s what they said.
1. You can’t have fun if you’re freezing
“Don’t buy just any winter boots — make sure they’re slip resistant, really warm” @canadian_student_chef
“Socks!!! Make sure you wear nice warm ones and pack extra in your bag, just in case!” @jessieleigh98
“LAYERS AND LAYERS. Remember, it’s always easier to layer up than layer down!!” @meow16x
“Layer your clothes, classrooms are really warm, but it’s often chilly outside” @angeliquechuang
2. Driving? Snow tires and …
“Tip – keep a blanket in your car and I always keep cat litter in my trunk to get my car unstuck.” @channy1221
3. Be careful when it’s icy
Pro tip: walk like a penguin
And if you do fall (and you’re OK), try out this piece of advice:
“If you fall on ice, just start laughing and people will laugh along 😂” @ghandour856
