How to cover a cast?

This past weekend I fell and got an EXTREMELY SMALL fracture on my thumb, but my doc decided to put me in a cast (I don't blame him, if not healed properly it will be messed up later in life) any tips on covering it? I'm going to Stowe, Vermont this weekend on a school trip. It will be the second time I EVER left PA to go riding, so there is no way in hell that im not going. What should I do to cover my hand to keep it warm?

I had a cast on my lower leg years ago, cut off an old pair of sweat pants and sewed the end shut. Then I covered that in a plastic trash bag to keep the cast dry. Looked pretty ghetto but it worked to stay warm and dry while hobbling around in the snow and what not.

Yea I got the brilliant idea of using a hand warmer plus a few layers of socks. It's gonna work.

Ive been trying to figure something out myself. Ive got a minor break in my ring finger. its wrapped up and will be in a warm glove, but i think im also gonna tape it together with my middle finger to prevent lateral movement.

I'd do some wicking layer, then fleece, then saran wrap, then your mom's oven mitten

Yeah I'd make sure to incorporate something in there that is waterproof, like plastic and tape. I'd be more concerned about getting wet than getting cold.

How big is the cast? Couldn't you wear a largish mitten over it? That way you'd at least have some waterproofing...?
