Winter Camping Tips

Tips for making camp in the snow: 

Pick a spot that’s sheltered from the wind and free of avalanche danger, then prep your tent site by packing down the snow.

Stay hydrated and eat lots of calories: 

Proper nutrition and hydration will help you stay warm. Make hot, nutritious breakfasts and dinners and enjoy quick snacks and lunches. Be sure to hydrate throughout the day.

Use gear that’s right for winter camping: 

You’ll need a sturdy tent, a warm sleeping bag, two sleeping pads and a stove suitable for cold temperatures.

Bring warmer clothing:  

Mid-weight base layers, fleece pants, a puffy coat, and a waterproof jacket and pants are standard. Don’t forget accessories like warm socks, a hat, gloves and sunglasses.

Prevent cold injuries: 

Frostbite and hypothermia are legitimate concerns while winter camping. Learn how to avoid them.

Additional tips: 

Eating food, filling a bottle with hot water and doing jumping jacks are just a few tips for staying warm on a cold night.
