Participant Information

Did you listen to the winter camp what to pack zoom? Now do you want to try out winter camping using what you learned?

This is your chance to sleep in the snow. 

This is not a guided or instructional trip, more an opportunity to practice and learn together, discuss our gear choices and experience over dinner and breakfast, and enjoy a night out. Feel free to email me with questions (or even better join the zoom on 31 March). I am definitely not an expert, but I have done this a few times and, even though I am usually a cold person, not only did I not die but actually kind of like it.

Due to Covid restrictions, everyone must be self-sufficient or own-household-sufficient and we can't share tents or cooking gear. Please bring your own tent, sleeping bag and mattress, stove + fuel, lunch, dinner, breakfast, and snacks. I have attached a suggested packing list to help you.

Use of the hut should be limited to "in case of emergencies" although it is there if anyone needs to warm up.


As per usual, beacon, probe, shovel, and 10 essentials required, as well as intermediate skiing ability (if skiing) and a sense of fun + adventure!
