What to wear on rocky mountaineer

Rocky mountaineers are not just a fun way to get in shape, they’re also a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air. But sometimes it’s hard to know what to wear on rocky mountaineers, especially if you’ve never been before.

Here at [company name], we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together this handy guide that will tell you everything you need to know about what to wear on rocky mountaineers.

Are you planning a trip to the Rocky Mountains? Whether it’s your first time or your tenth, there are some things you should know about what to wear on your journey.

First of all: pack light! The less you carry with you, the happier you’ll be. This is particularly important if you’re hiking in areas where there are bears—as any hiker knows, bears are attracted to both food and smell. If you can limit those factors, you’ll have a much better chance of avoiding an encounter with a bear. So pack light!

Second: wear layers. It can get hot in the daytime but cold at night, so layer accordingly. And make sure to have some dry clothes handy in case it rains (which it almost always does).

Third: wear your hiking boots! You don’t want to be out on a trail and suddenly realize that your shoes aren’t right for the terrain because they’re too slippery or too heavy or just not right for hiking at all!

What to wear on rocky mountaineer

If you’re planning to climb a mountain, you’ll need the right equipment. But what about the clothes?

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” But when it comes to climbing mountains, that’s kind of how it goes. You need to be able to trust your gear and know that it will be able to stand up to whatever challenges come your way. And you want to look good while doing it!

You might think that just being dressed in layers is enough—but what if there’s wind? Or rain? What if you want to stay warm but also look stylish? That’s where we come in!

Dress onboard Rocky Mountaineer is smart casual. We suggest that guests wear comfortable, cool layers as the dome coaches have expansive windows. Please bring onboard a light jacket or sweater as the air conditioning may feel just right for some, but a bit chilly for others.

What is the dress code for “gold leaf”? Also is there storage space for luggage as we will be going on a cruise after two days on the train, so will have two suitcases with us. Advice would be much appreciated.

Hello,

Dress onboard Rocky Mountaineer is smart casual. We suggest that guests wear comfortable, cool layers as the dome coaches have expansive windows. Please bring onboard a light jacket or sweater as the air conditioning may feel just right for some, but a bit chilly for others. Temperatures fluctuate throughout the day as guests will be travelling through various climate regions. You may start your day in the cooler Canadian Rockies and end the day in a warm desert region.

Due to the natural movement of the train and the spiral staircase in GoldLeaf Service domes, flat-soled shoes with grip are recommended.

Guests are limited to two suitcases per person (total luggage weight not to exceed 30 kg or 66 lbs). No one piece of luggage may weigh more than 23 kg (50 lbs). Your checked luggage will not be available onboard the train as your luggage will be transported to your next destination. We would recommend bringing onboard only what you may require for the day, all medications, cameras, sunglasses etc.

Feel free to call our expert Vacation Consultants for advice on what to pack. We look forward to welcoming you onboard!

We were on silver leaf service. I would say dress is business casual. Comfortable clothes. I did not see any type of fancy dress clothes on individuals boarding any type of service.

As to luggage…. we went on an Alaska cruise after train as well. You do not need to be concerned about your luggage. The Rocky Mountaineer package includes luggage handling. They pick up your luggage at hotel and porter it for you to the next hotel. You do not handle luggage at all. You do not need to be concerned about on train…We brought a small backpack on the train carrying camera and personal items. A light sweater in case you are cold on train. Because you don’t have access to your luggage make sure you bring any personal identification such as passports and also any required medications in your backpack.

Hope this helps.

You can dress up as much as you desire although most people wear casual attire. Baggage handling is included and your bags will arrive at the hotel before you do and will be waiting inside your room! You do not have to handle your bags at all except to pack them and place them beside the door (inside) for pickup after you leave the room. I am really glad that I did not have to haul bags onto or off of the train.

There is no dress code for Gold Leaf class as the only meals which you will be served are breakfast and lunch. You will feel comfortable dressed in the casual clothes in which you are travelling as the meals are very informal.

Rocky Mountaineer take care of your luggage leaving you free to enjoy the journey. Enjoy.

I did Gold Leaf from Jasper to Vancouver last year. No dress code that I am aware of (and I hate dress codes!) everyone was dressed casually. it’s a long trip – you want to comfortable.

You don’t need to worry about luggage, it gets it’s own transport and is handled very efficiently. Our luggage was collected from the Hotel in Jasper on the first morning. When we arrive in Kamloops, for the overnight stay, the luggage was waiting for us in our hotel room. Next morning it was collected from our room and we didn’t see it again to we arrived at our hotel in Vancouver, were it was waiting for us.

I would keep your hand luggage to the absolute minimum though – there are no storage lockers on the trains so whatever you take will need to fit under the seat. (no room on your lap, because of the non-stop food and drink). So no airplane sized cabin luggage – just a large carry all/handbag.

So “casual” covers a pretty broad range. Good shorts , nice polo shirt and tennis shoes…. khakis and polo shirt….. good jeans and polo shirt? I guess my comfy Hawaiian shirts are out.

Agree with everything Helen said. As long as you’re neat and tidy, casual is fine. Depending on the time of year, you’ll also probably need some sunscreen or a hat.I had a cabin luggage sized camera bag with me, which turned out to be a waste of time, since it’s near impossible to take decent photos from the train when it’s moving. A compact camera is all you’ll need. All your luggage will be transferred for you, so you don’t have to carry it on the train.

I had expected everyone to dress up a little, based on the RM advertisements, however everyone dressed comfortably for travel. It wasn’t snobbish. You will spend many hours sitting, so wear something similar to what you would on an airplane and leave your dressy clothes for the cruise. There is only a small elevator from the seating level to the dining level so the majority of guests must walk, therefore I recommend wearing low heals. There is no storage in the carriage itself, so only take a small handbag onboard. I had to put my feet on top of my small backpack as it wouldn’t fit under the seat in front, so be warned. Suitcases are delivered to your next hotel by a truck. We found this to be very efficient. A RM representative will explain all this the night before your train departure and hand out tags for your luggage.

Our packing tips

Print this Page
With over 30 years experience of train travel through different climates and landscapes, we wanted to share our tips on what to pack when travelling with us. From our Canadian routes, to our US route, and what to wear onboard, we have lots of suggestions!

Our Canadian rail routes
First Passage to the West, Journey through the Clouds, or Rainforest to Gold Rush

Midweight fleece or wool sweater
Warm and cool, quick-dry layers
Comfortable, waterproof shoes for sightseeing

What to wear onboard the train
Dress onboard Rocky Mountaineer is casual. Here are some recommendations on what you may want to wear onboard the train:

Comfortable, cool layers as there are expansive windows
A light jacket or sweater as the air conditioning may feel just right for some, but chilly for others
Flat-soled shoes with grip to help keep you steady with the natural movement of the train
A hat and sunglasses for sunny days

We recommend that you bring a day pack or bag which is small enough to fit at your feet onboard the train as there is no overhead or under seat storage, and you will not have access to your checked luggage. The space for your day pack or bag is approximately 16” x 11” x 8” in GoldLeaf Service, and 23” x 8” x 8” in SilverLeaf Service.

Things to pack in your day pack or bag for onboard the train:

Medications
Valuables (purse, wallet, passports, jewelry)
Personal items (sweater, sunglasses, a book)
Final travel documents sent via email 30 days prior to travel or accessible through our Guest Portal
Other things you may want to have with you:

Electronic devices (laptop, tablet, mobile phone) and their charging cords and converter (if required) as the majority of our coaches have electrical outlets available for your use
Headphones
Extra camera batteries

My husband and I are going to make a trip there at the end of the month, hopefully sans kids. He’d like to eat at Spago for lunch. When I was last there 15 years ago, I was so young and poor, I was embarrassed to set foot into a store, much less window shop. Now I have the right bags, shoes and jewelry. I wear a lot of high end contemporary clothes, and am lucky to have a good petite figure and look young for my 38 years. I don’t have designer clothing like Chanel or Prada, just the bags and shoes. I’m also from the East Coast so I will definitely look like a tourist regardless, just not a poor one. So what is the best thing to wear? Any suggestions?

These days, Rodeo Drive is chock-full of all types — the crowd is heavy on tourists from all walks of life. Just wear something you feel comfortable in and have a good time, don’t worry about whether or not you look acceptable or affluent enough.

Dark jeans, COMFY cute flats, a nice fitted top, maybe blazer (carry that if it’s hot) and a great bag. Don’t go too far with the jewelry and accessories.

I agree with the others. Just make sure your wearing a nice bag and shoes, your hair is done and the clothes fit you well and you’ll be fine. Don’t gawk and point at people and things too much. I’ve been there a few times, i do feel intimidated even though I know I shouldn’t be. You’ll see all kinds of people there, mostly tourists but some snobs, just ignore them. Let us know how it goes.

The truth is, you will be judged by what you wear & that is the reality of the situation. You do not have to look as though you just stepped off a runway but just put your best foot forward. As LalaMae suggested, wear a cute bag, shoes, nice fitting clothes, and you will be fine.

I go there all the time, and I never go more formal than a tank and jeans with jeweled flipflops or a sundress. I carry high-end bags, though.

LA is a casual town, so you’re not going to see too many people in suits or formal clothing, not even on Rodeo. And it’ll be hot by the time you get here, so keep that in mind, too.

The only advice I’d have is not to wear a fanny pack and those terrible ankle-cropped cargo pants! I go to Beverly Hills once in awhile to shop (and people watch, heh), and some of the tourists there look like they’re ready to go hiking or something! Otherwise, as long as you look put-together, labels shouldn’t matter.

I think the best thing about these tourist places is that you can go dressed anyway and look fine, you could walk in a suit and wont look overdressed and walk with jeans and flats and still be cool (imo)

ITA! As long as you wear something well fitting and chic and carry a quality bag/shoes you’ll blend in with the locals. It’s not like that scene in Pretty Woman post-makeover where she’s dressed like she’s going to Ascot! BH is pretty casual like all of LA.

Just wear what you would wear shopping on the east coast. Don’t try to front.. because people will see straight through you. Besides people will judge no matter what… That’s if they are even looking at you to begin with.

Things To Do On Rodeo Drive
Beverly Hills is known around the world as one of the most fashionable places to shop with its crown jewel Rodeo Drive on par with Fifth Avenue in New York, Bond Street in London, Avenue Montaigne in Paris and Ginza in Tokyo. With more than 100 famous stores on Rodeo Drive comprising its three palm-fringed blocks within the Golden Triangle, it is easy to become lost in the street’s unique splendor and charm.

BEVERLY WILSHIRE, A FOUR SEASONS HOTEL
9500 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
Located at the base of Rodeo Drive on Wilshire Boulevard is one of Beverly Hills’ oldest and most luxurious hotels, Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel. Constructed in 1928, this legendary Forbes 4-Star hotel has served many iconic personalities, including Warren Beatty, John Lennon and Elvis Presley. Today, it is known as the “Pretty Woman hotel” as it provided the backdrop to scenes from the classic film starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Living up to its nickname, the in-house nail salon, The Nail Bar, plays the movie for you to watch as you sip champagne and enjoy your hand or foot treatment.

The hotel has restaurants such as THEBlvd, serving local California fare with Mediterranean influences under airy lofty ceilings or out on a patio overlooking the world-famous Rodeo Drive. There’s also CUT by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, winner of a highly coveted Michelin star, serving some of the choiciest cuts of steak and seafood in the country with a sleek and all-white modern décor designed by Richard Meier, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect of The Getty Center. For small plates and a wide selection of wine and cocktails, look to the hotel’s two lounges, CUT Lounge and THEBlvd’s lounge.

Not to be missed is the Spa at Beverly Wilshire, which is the only hotel in the U.S. to offer the Diamond Rose collection from Natura Bisse, as well as Evolue and Elemis treatments. If you don’t have time for a meal or spa treatment, take a few minutes to admire the beauty of the hotel’s lobby, complete with seasonal floral displays, set beneath a massive crystal chandelier.

TWO RODEO DRIVE
At the corner of Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Just across the street from Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, sits Two Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills’ own European-style shopping center complete with a cobblestone walkway, street lamps and floral displays. World-renowned brands from Versace, Jimmy Choo and Lanvin, to Brunello Cucinelli, CH Carolina Herrera and Tiffany & Co. are found here. For outdoor dining, try 208 Rodeo Restaurant, offering beautifully presented and imaginatively prepared California cuisine with views of an elegantly curved European-style cobblestone walkway.

For the perfect photo to add to your collection of Beverly Hills memories, strike a pose in front of the stairs and fountain on the south end of Two Rodeo Drive, as well as the famous Via Rodeo sign on the north end of the cobblestone street.

RODEO DRIVE WALK OF STYLE®
From Wilshire Boulevard to South Santa Monica Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
While the Hollywood Walk of Fame honors those in the entertainment industry, fashion superstars have a sidewalk tribute of their own. On Rodeo Drive, from Wilshire Boulevard to South Santa Monica Boulevard, walk among some of the world’s well-known fashion icons on the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style®, everyone from Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani and Herb Ritts, to Salvatore Ferragamo, Gianni and Donatella Versace and Mario Testino. First introduced in 2003 by the City of Beverly Hills and the Rodeo Drive Committee, Walk of Style honors fashion legends for their contributions to the fashion and entertainment industries. Recipients are selected by an independent group of representatives from media, entertainment and fashion, and are honored with a permanent plaque featuring a personal quote and their own signature. These plaques are then embedded into the sidewalk of Rodeo Drive as a lasting tribute to each honoree.

ANDERTON COURT
332 North Rodeo Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Situated on Rodeo Drive between Dayton Way and Brighton Way, visitors will find an architectural masterpiece, Anderton Court, by Frank Lloyd Wright, who played a key role in the architectural movements of the twentieth century and was recognized by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American architect of all time.” The three-story building houses six boutiques and is famous for its unique design which is completely devoid of steps and instead relies on a series of ramps to move between floors. Constructed in 1952, it was the iconic architect’s final structure in Los Angeles County, making it an unofficial monument to the pioneering architect.

RODEO DRIVE
From Wilshire Boulevard to Santa Monica Boulevard
Rodeo Drive’s unrivaled shopping options have solidified its status as one of the most prestigious retail destinations in not just California but also the entire world. With more than 100 boutiques offering the finest in fashion, apparel, handbags, shoes, home accessories and jewelry, Rodeo Drive’s stores rival those in the planet’s most famous shopping districts, from those in Milan, London and Paris, to those in London, New York and Tokyo. Not to miss is a step inside the flagship stores on Rodeo Drive from brands such as Chanel, Hermes, Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Harry Winston, which carry their full collections, including items exclusive to the Rodeo Drive stores. These flagships are some of the biggest in terms of their square footage compared to other boutiques in not only the West Coast but also the entire country.

HOUSE OF BIJAN
443 North Rodeo Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Another treasure that can be found on Rodeo Drive is a collaboration between a fashion designer and an automotive brand. House of Bijan’s Bijan Pakzad’s custom Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is one of the most popular attractions on Rodeo Drive, with hundreds of tourists snapping photos daily. This gleaming yellow Rolls-Royce has become a permanent fixture along the street, earning itself a matching yellow parking meter and sidewalk plaques featuring the brand’s logos beside its Rodeo Drive parking spot. Operating on an appointment-only basis, House of Bijan is one of Rodeo Drive’s most exclusive men’s store catering to everyone from royal families, celebrities and professional athletes, to dignitaries and even five U.S. presidents – George H. W. Bush and his son, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.
