This is my guide on how to prepare for a successful snow camping trip!
This is based on prior experience and knowledge. I have done this and I know how it works!

Some Needed Things:
- Money (lots)
- Patience (lots)
- Knowledge (lots)
- Snow (lots)
- Coldness (lots)

The picture is of my first time snow camping! It is not a good idea to leave your tent open while it snows.....

Step 1: Equipment

This was my Equipment List:

-Backpack (internal or large duffel bag, no wheels)
-Four season tent (if not sleeping in snow cave)
-Sleeping bag (at least 0 degrees)
-Sleeping bag liner
-Sleeping pad + reflective insulation
-Long Underwear (2)
-Thermals (2)
-Shirts (4)
-Fleece Jacket/Sweater
-Outer Shell (Jacket + pants)
-Normal pants (2)
-Wool socks (5)
-Beanie, Hat, Balaclava
-Gloves/Mittens (2-3)
-Snow shovel
-Sunscreen/Lip Balm
-Garbage Bags
-Water/Energy Drinks
-Mess kit
-Toiletries (toilet paper, toothbrush, toothpaste…)
-Hand warmers

Also matches (waterproof) are nice, along with a hand saw or ax, and some fire starting materials. A stove would be good too!

If you aren't going to go snow camping a lot, try to rent the stuff above, so that you don't spend a few thousand dollars... However, I do actually go snow camping a lot, so I actually spent the money!

If it is snowing hard, remember to stake the tent into the ground, and package everything in small plastic bags, so in case your backpack gets wet, your stuff isn't wet.... (you can also get a waterproof backpack!)
<p>great guide! i have a really nice 3-season tent that works in winter if i bring my sleeping bag liner.</p>
Great! Thanks!
Thank&acute;s a lot for such nice tips for winter.
0 celsius is 32 farenheit. Thats not that warm of a bag...
That's awesome!
Great guide! The sections on food and safety are very definitive. However, I didn't see any mention of a heat source, unless there is a camp stove included in your mess kit. Even so, you should always carry secondary means of starting a fire, just in case your stove fails, which is not uncommon. In the future, perhaps consider adding a small ax and/or folding saw, as well as your preferred firestarting supplies (lighter, matches, ferro rod, lint, cotton balls, charcloth, fat wood, birch bark, steel wool, vaseline, hexamine, etc.)<br><br>Also, I was very glad to see that you mentioned a pocket knife in the utensils section. Many people forget to mention this in their outdoor guides, but in my opinion, it is the most important part of the kit. Your knife is your life. <br><br>Overall, 4.5 stars. Great work.
Thanks! There are hand warmers, and matches are good...(the waterproof ones)<br>I'll update it!
Just FInished! If you read it, please comment below and tell me what you think!<br><br>Thanks,<br>rocketman7
