Love Hiking? Don’t Let Winter Stop You!

Love Hiking? Don’t Let Winter Stop You!

What to Bring on a Winter Hike

When hiking in the summer, we often skip out onto the trails with nothing but a bottle of water in hand. Winter hiking, on the other hand, demands that you come prepared with a few key items for your comfort and safety. Whether you’re planning a short 2-mile jaunt or a daylong trek, remember the old adage, “Better safe than sorry!” Here is a basic list to get you going:

  • Plenty of water and snacks as needed
  • Extra pair of socks
  • Extra pair of foot traction
  • Fully-charged cell phone with NOAA weather app
  • Water and other supplies for your pet(s) if they are joining you
  • map of the area
  • Trekking poles for balance and stability (optional)
  • A hiking partner (recommended)

That last one can be a bit controversial in the hiking and mountaineering community. We know that some of you love your solo hikes and climbs, but it goes without saying that having a partner along for the ride is safer than going it alone. This is particularly true in the wintertime. Consider it, especially if you’ll be far out in the backcountry or tackling a daylong trip.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 11.52.55 AM
An image from one of the many virtual hikes along Boulder trails, thanks to Google!

In the summer of 2015 Google partnered with Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) to map some of the city’s trails. OSMP provided information on our trails, along with recommendations for areas to map. Google conducted the mapping for this pilot effort. The city is exploring the possibility that more OSMP trails could be mapped. Here are the trails you can walk virtually:
