Survive An Unexpected Night Out in Winter

Dec 19, 2009
Outside Magazine

After hearing of several recent incidents in which backcountry travelers spent an unplanned night out in the wilderness, Lou Dawson, famed ski mountaineer and backcountry-ski blogger, put together a basic primer on winter survival today. Is it poor form for a ski blogger to link to another ski blogger? I don't think I care. Reading Dawson's Winter Survival Lessons might—you never know—help you backcountry travelers avert a crisis should you find yourself too far from the hut or the parking lot on a wintry night.
