VAST, STARRY NIGHTS. Crisp, blazingly white days. These dichotomies can define the winter camping experience, a retreat to wilderness so quiet and cold you might as well be on the moon. Space suits are not required. But


you might consider a down-insulated coat. Your sleeping bag should be rated to handle temps plunging below zero in the night. This spread of equipment will help


you survive living in the snow for a weekend, or even days on end. Put on a few extra layers. Get ready to trudge ahead into sideways-blowing snow. Winter camping is another world. But with the right gear, you’ll enter the white, frozen woods and experience a place few people ever see. ¿
