What to wear:
  • Warm, comfortable clothing - dress in layers! The air temperature is 45F. 
  • Stretchy or loose fitting pants that allow freedom of movement - no jeans!

  • Thin gloves and a hat 
Equipment provided by Denver Curling:
  • Brooms - for sweeping
  • Grippers - to put over your shoes to keep the ice clean and to keep you from slipping
  • Step-on sliders - for throwing the stone
