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. www.critterstylebackpacking.net/snowsurvivalor copy and pastehttp://www.critterstylebackpacking.net/#!about1/cnal

"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!
