Fox News listed some of these festivities, ranging from Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska, to the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival in Colorado. The latter is definitely not for the faint-hearted nor for those clad in poor-quality fur. As the list says, “This Colorado ski town’s wonderland has Wild West flair, featuring a biathlon where competitors dress in vintage fur trapper’s clothing and then ski while shooting black powder muzzleloaders.”
If you think you’re tough enough to participate or if you simply want to watch the event and celebrate together with your loved ones, then you should think about bringing your best fur coat for the trip. You wouldn’t have to buy a brand-new coat because there are plenty of retailers of preowned fur coats, like Day Furs, that can provide just the coat you need. In fact, purchasing old fur coats might be a better deal for you than buying brand-new outerwear, since they’re still as trendy and beautiful as today’s shearling, leather, and luxury coats and jackets.
