Personal Packing List: Overnight in Glacier Country
Appropriate dress can make your trip more enjoyable and keep you more comfortable. During our operating season - May through September - weather can vary from 35º to 90º. Given our mountain location, the weather can change dramatically in just a few hours so we want you to be properly prepared.
We can provide all sorts of equipment on overnighters. If you need something let us know in advance. We can outfit you with rain suits, wet suits, booties, mittens, and fleece jackets if necessary as well as tents, and sleeping bags. When you arrive at our headquarters we will help you pack your stuff into our waterproof dry bags.
There is always the slim possibility that your personal items could be lost. Please don't bring any valuables including expensive jewelry on the rafts. Eyeglasses, sunglasses, and hats should be secured around your head with some sort of retainer on any whitewater trip. Our outfitters store stocks a variety of retention devices to minimize that chance that you will lose anything.
While we welcome cameras on our trips and encourage their use we cannot be held responsible for them. We recommend and sell the waterproof disposable type at our headquarters.
Please bring anything you might need!
Footwear Your feet are going to get wet so please plan ahead. We will outfit each person with neoprene boot and socks that will keep your feet warm but it's nice to have a change of shoes for walking around camp. We recommend bringing tennis shoes or light hiking boots and extra socks.
