Winter Backpacking
    #3793005 - 02/17/05 01:07 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Have many people here done much winter backpacking in the snow?

I would have to say that I enjoy this type of experience more than any other time of year. The terrain around here is very mountainous (Rocky Mountains) and at any given point in the winter there will be at least 3 feet of snow, which makes for great shroomin times...(providing you're not an idiot and ensure that you are appropriately dressed...basically just keep your feet warm and dry)

Another trick that I've picked up for winter hikes is to put a small amount of Cayenne pepper in your socks to keep your feet warm...sounds fucked...but it works.

I have done somewhere around 25 of the 46 high peaks of the adirondacks during the winter. Its a different experience in the winter, and doing long steep ascents with a heavy pack and snow shoes on sucks. BUT on the plus side, skiing(more like leaning back and balance slidding) down a mountain on snow shoes is fun.

Dude...I am so jealous!

...don't forget about the cayenne pepper trick, but don't use too much. 

I'll be coming to Vegas again in April...hopefully you'll be around.  :thumbup:
