What to wear in the Ice House

Exercise pants or sweats You may even want to double up on the exercise pants to stay warm. Think about squatting low in your pants... are we seeing more than we should?  Would you like a longer top to go with that?
Warm top layers Arm movement is important.  Wear several layers.  Do not wear fabrics that shed such as unwashed fleece or fluffy knit fibers.  It is COLDER than you think.  Fun clothing such as onesies are absolutely welcome.
Hat and gloves Leather batting or driving gloves are often best.  Avoid fluffy fibers that might shed.
Wool socks We recommend wool crew socks. Think "would this keep me warm while standing on ice for two hours?"  Ankles get cold too!
Clean sneakers Clean your runners or skate shoes and carry them into the club to keep them clean.  No muddy shoes allowed in the ice house (there is a place in our warm room to change your shoes).
KIDS  No, don't wear kids.  But keep in mind that feet smaller than a size 3 should wear the biggest shoes that will stay on their feet as they have a better chance of fitting our grippers.

Layers are recommended.  It is generally 38-41 degrees and you'll be standing on ice which is even colder.  Dress warmly; you can always peel off a layer if needed. You are welcome to use our men's / women's locker rooms to change in.

GLITTER is strictly forbidden on the premises in all forms and colors (including on gift bags and party decor)

  

What to avoid

  • Jeans. Shorts must have tights underneath.
  • Heeled shoes, plastic soles or boots that inhibit ankle flexibility. 
  • No-show socks, unless you like frozen ankles.
  • Structured snow boots (ankles will need their full range of motion)
  • Glitter, sequins, feathers, or anything else that could possibly shed bits, such as really fluffy sweaters.
 

What to bring

  • Coat.  You can always take it off.  
  • Hats and gloves are recommended.  
  • Sneakers. Preferably a clean pair if you have one.    
  • Knee Pad -volleyball style- is optional.  
  • Cameras are optional.

Please leave the valuables at home as lockers are not available.  Most items (keys, wallet) may be brought into the ice house with you and stored on the outer walkways.  Evergreen Curling Club is not responsible for lost-items.

Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are also welcome in the "warm room" but only water bottles with a cap may be taken into the ice house.  Non-alcoholic beverages and snacks may be brought in from the outside, and are also available for purchase at our bar.  

Observers are welcome!

We have a 'warm room' where observers may look out onto the ice to catch all the action in relative warmth.
