Hiking in the Snow for Beginners on 04/30/2014 17:43:12 MDT Print View

Surviving in the snow is a topic that not a lot of people seem to want to touch. I work around lots of inexperienced visitors who are absolutely set on heading off to hike in the snow. I made these tips, with an emphasis on snow travel, to allow eager new hikers to explore more safely.

I am posting this here for feedback.

"Allen and Mike's Really Cool Backcountry Ski Book" is the very best book on the subject I've ever come across.

As a ski patroller who has taught US Army ROTC cadets winter survival (In class and in the field) I have read volumes on the subject.

Allen and Mike's book is about 60% winter camping and the rest on ski and snowshoe travel.

Eric, I just picked up that book on gear swap. Lots of good information, and the illustrations are hilarious!
