Winter Survival Guide: Travel

Hiking through the snow is beautiful, but not exactly easy. Use these tips to make your winter traverse all the more pleasant.

 Snowshoe Like a Pro
“Wear gaiters and walk with a normal, rolling-toe gait,” advises Adam Chase, captain of Atlas’s snowshoe-racing team. Learn his other tactics for conserving energy and preserving gear.



Avoid the Rest-Stop Cooldown
Heed these tips from alpinist Cory Richards to stay warm.
>> Put on layers. “The first thing I do when I stop moving is throw on a down jacket, even if I’m hot. I’d rather warm my sweat—and dry it out—than let it freeze,” says Richards. Add a hat and extra gloves, too.
>> Get out of the wind. Find shelter, build a wall, or dig a trench in the snow.
>> Sit on a foam pad or your pack. If possible, also get your feet off the ground.
>> Have a hot meal or a thermos of soup. The liquid hydrates, calories keep you warm, and sodium may prevent cramps.

Breathe Easy
“In cold, dry winter air, you can lose body heat and moisture while breathing. Cover your nose and mouth with a balaclava or bandana to conserve warmth and water.”
Kristy Holland, BACKPACKER Survival Editor
