Trails Club Of Oregon – Cold Weather Guideline For Trips

It is your personal responsibility to be aware of your surroundings, especially in the winter. Weather conditions can change quickly, no matter how short your tour is or how close you are to home. Be prepared for changes every time you venture out. In the snow there are certain hazards you need to be able to recognize such as creek crossings, avalanche conditions, and tree or rock wells. The rewards are worth the effort: watching snow glisten on trees and mountaintops, enjoying the brisk air on an icy day, being proudly warm and dry on a rainy, windy day. Winter is a great time to be outdoors! Here are ways to be ready for anything Mother Nature brings our way.

Please see the Cold Weather Guideline For Trips for information about preparing for winter trips
