Snow equipment rental in Ushuaia: discover how to rent snow equipment and clothes to enjoy what the city at the end of the world has to offer
Known as the city of the end of the world, Ushuaia, the capital of Fire land, is located 800 kilometers from the Antarctic continent, which makes it the southernmost city in the world. Its snow season is also the longest in South America, with average temperatures that even in summer do not reach 10º.
Being in the city guarantees constant snow and stunning scenery such as glaciers, mountains and forests. Of course, this look is also suitable for practicing snow sports, such as skiing and snowboarding.
For Brazilians who are not used to such low temperatures, facing the cold of the region is also part of the adventure. It is normal that, before a trip to Ushuaia, some doubts arise, especially in relation to what kind of clothes to take.
Is it worth renting snow clothing and accessories in Ushuaia?
First of all, it is necessary to understand that warm clothes – especially those found in the Brazil – are different from snow-specific clothing. It is very important to dress in a way that is compatible with the negative temperatures of the region so as not to spoil the fun during the trip.
Warm sweaters or coats are not enough, but special clothes for this weather condition. Waterproof pants and coats, thermal shirts, snow jackets and proper boots are required to avoid slipping on the ice. In addition, accessories such as gloves and specific socks cannot be missing either.
Therefore, it is worth evaluating whether it would be advantageous to pack your bags with coats and other heavy items on your trip. Another point is that there are few stores specialized in Brazil that offer appropriate clothing for snow – and the values are not attractive at all.
Instead of running the risk of getting cold or paying excess baggage at the airport, many people choose to rent clothing and snow equipment from stores that specialize in Ushuaia.
The main street of the city, the Calle de San Martin, offers several stores that sell and rent clothes and accessories ideal for practicing ice sports. One of them is the Ushuaia Extremo, where you can find ski, snowboard and snow clothing equipment for both adults and children.
