Things I used on my winter trip when the high was 36, low was 16, and snow was at least two feet deep where camping:
  • -20 mummy bag
  • plastic ground cover the size of the mummy bag
  • small tent footprint that worked well as a side wall to block blowing snow
  • foam pad
  • large plastic shovel for snow
  • mini pillow case I stuffed my jacket in
  • down jacket
  • ice cleats
  • hiking shoes (would use boots if the trail wasn't so popular)
  • base layer pants
  • fast drying hiking pants
  • base layer shirt
  • fleece shirt
  • extra fleece shirt for when first got wet from being too close to the pool
  • wigwam socks
  • extra socks
  • head band to keep ears warm while hiking
  • jogging gloves
  • warm mittens
  • alcohol stove that didn't work below 25 degrees
  • pot for heating water
  • MSR water filter
  • two 32oz nalgene bottles
  • silicone water bottle (I could break the ice by squeezing/biting and have a drink while the nalgene bottles thawed in the hot spring enough to unscrew)
  • plastic spoon
  • knife
  • trail mix
  • sourdough bread

  • gotten stronger
  • large garbage bag to cover pack if it had started snowing
  • extra light
  • extra pants, shirt, waterproof socks, mittens, and hat in dry bag paper and pencil
  • swimming goggles (water flow was too low to need them this time)
