There are many people that like to get away and experience a winter backpacking adventure, but whether you are experienced or not, it is important that you learn a few helpful tips to help you remain safe from danger and enjoy yourself to the fullest during your adventure. Many people that love backpacking may not think about the fact that things could always go wrong, but you need to, just in case. You never know when an emergency is going to occur and it would be so beneficial for you to think about this so that you can be totally prepared for whatever could possibly go wrong. Winter backpacking can be so much fun and very exciting but you need to know how to stay dry and warm, in case anything went wrong, so that you do not put your life or anyone else’s in any kind of danger.

Learning how to make a fire is a MUST for backpacking in the winter time because it gets really, really cold out there, through the night. Make sure you know exactly how to start a fire before you ever plan on going backpacking in the winter, please. You have to have some waterproof matches to start out with and sticks or wood, use the type that can remain lit even if it were to get wet. Being able to start a fire quickly is very important, in the case where you felt like you were literally freezing to death. You can get tips from experienced backpackers that backpack in the winter or get online to research the proper way to keep a fire lit during a trip like this.

Another good tip to remember when you are backpacking in the winter is how to stay warm enough from those cold, high winter winds that blow late at night and early in the mornings. Ofcourse you already have a tent on board, no doubt about that, unless you are being a wuss and staying in a cabin. What you will want to do though, once your tent is up and you are ready to call it a night is, perhaps build some big snow blocks directly in front or side of your tent, believe it or not, this will really help with keeping the cold winter winds from getting in your tent as much. Or, maybe you could just take some type of barrier with you when you go on your winter backpacking adventure, if so, then it should be quite simple to protect yourself from those cold winds.

Stay dry when you are backpacking in the winter, hypothermia can be fatal if not treated properly and promptly. Carry plenty of extra clothes, in case yours get wet. If you do get wet out in that terrible cold, make sure that you get somewhere and shuck those wet clothes as quickly as possible and put a layer of dry ones on for comfort. Do not put on too many clothes because once you have gotten extremely cold, the last thing you want to do is get too warm right away, it is better to slowly warm up. Remember these things when winter backpacking so that you can have the most enjoyable time on your adventure.
