Backpacking or camping in winter

Backpacking or camping in winter? Remember the army survival guide acronym for cold weather wilderness travel: COLD; Clean clothing; Avoid overheating; Loose, layered clothing; and Dry clothing. This is a recipe for staying warm.
- Winter backpacking can mean using a lot of stove fuel to melt ice and snow for drinking water. To use less fuel, carry a piece of black plastic, like an opened-up garbage bag. Lay out the plastic in the sun and scatter snow on it. The black plastic absorbs the sun's heat and should quickly melt the snow if it is near freezing. Carefully pour the water off. If the snow is clean, you can forego purification.

Exposure to intense cold

After prolonged exposure to intense cold, your body’s chemical reactions begin to slow until they generate too little energy for your muscles to work. By carefully regulating blood flow, your body will protect your key organs while preserving your extremities—at least for a while. In the cold, blood is generally directed to the core of the body and flows only intermittently to the extremities to bring oxygen to cells there. After prolonged exposure to cold, blood travels only to the most essential parts—your brain and heart. As severe hypothermia sets in, these organs may be the only ones left functioning.
