Winter opens up a whole new world of outdoor adventures, from snowshoeing across a pristine panorama to fat biking through a powdery vale. Embracing these dramatic landscapes might seem beyond the reach of the casual outdoor lover, but learning basic techniques will help hikers, snowshoers, campers, skiers, backpackers, and other recreationists of all skill levels get the most out of the season―safely and with confidence. This accessible guide by Baxter State Park ranger Andrew Vietze walks you through planning outdoor winter adventures of all kinds, with practical advice emphasizing preparation, safety, outdoor stewardship, and fun. You'll learn when to go, what you'll need to stay warm and dry, how to navigate, where to make camp, how to read the weather, and what to eat to stay energized. You'll also find instruction on snowshoeing, skiing, building your own gear-hauling sled, and other handy skills that will boost your cold-weather mastery. Whether you're planning a weeklong backpacking trip in the mountains or want to dip a toe into winter day-hiking, let this unintimidating manual from the Appalachian Mountain Club, the Northeast's most trusted source in outdoor recreation, be your guide.
