Don't forget a hat and waterproof mittens, though you can take them off momentarily to allow your baby to feel the snow with her bare hands. Of course, you'll need to be ready to dry and warm them quickly afterwards.
Also add sunscreen and sunglasses to your list, since the sun's rays reflect off snow. There is no set limit on the amount of time she can play, says Dr. Hill, so use your best judgment and take her inside at the first sign of discomfort. You may be tempted to bundle your baby up even when you're inside, but don't go overboard.
A good way to check to see if he's too hot or cold is to put a hand on his tummy or back, which should be warm but not sweaty.
Keeping your baby from becoming too warm is especially important when he's sleeping, since overheating can contribute to SIDS. At bedtime, zip him into a sleep sack or a receiving blanket that is carefully swaddled and stays below his armpits instead of using a blanket, which also increases the risk of SIDS. Sweating, damp hair, flushed cheeks, and rapid breathing are all signs of overheating, so if you observe them, remove a layer of clothing.
But there's no need to go crazy checking on him every five minutes. If he's sleeping soundly, his crib is clear of loose bedding, and the temperature is set to the appropriate range, he's probably just right.

Grant - Wrapping in plastic would be a vapor barrier as you say. But, covering the foot end of the bag allows moisture to escape while keeping the foot end drier and a bit warmer.
When dealing with extreme low temperatures, there is some point in the insulating layer between your body and the air where your perspiration condenses and freezes. Wherever that point is, it will become a frozen, saturated layer. Safely dealing with extreme temperatures for extended time requires specialized gear, such as internal vapor barriers or insulated shelters.
For many years our troop would have atleast 3 winter campouts every year. We always had a troop BEL Basic equipment list. This list was a basic and simple list.. All our winter camps were here in Northern Michigan with lots of deep snow and we made our shelters.
Great tips and ideas. A must read for scouts and leaders. Don't forget sunscreen and sunglasses too because of the reflective properties of snow! Overall ,very useful information in this page. This was really helpful, because I am going snow camping soon. Sorel-type boots are the best for snowcamping. They should be one size larger than your normal shoe size to accomodate the synth. It is also nice to have a spare set of the wool inserts for the boots to keep in the foot of your sleeping bag for the next day.
That's why vet winter campers use long sleeping bags to accomodate the extra gear. You must remember to open up the laces as wide as possible so you can get your warm boot inserts into your frozen boots in the morning! Thanks for this post, I'm the SPL of my troop, and I've been needing help with getting stuff to talk about at meetings, this really clears it up. The best thing I ever did for winter camping was slipping my winter coat over the end of my bag s.
We just got back from a winter camping trip where it was 5 degrees over night. I had a 20 year old 20 degree bag inside a 40 degree bag and slipped the winter coat over the end. I was super warm. We go camping every month during the year. This tip list is awesome and I love everyone else's tips too. Here are two of my favorite tips: My feet are frequently cold in my sleeping bag, no matter the season.
Wearing down booties in my bag helps keep my toes toasty warm during cold weather camping. Most of my camping buddies and I wear very nice and expensive down coats when we're hanging out around our camp kitchen area and the fire. To help protect the coat from food splatters, flying fire embers, etc, we wear over-sized flannel button-up shirts over our coats. I bought mine at a second-hand store - the size is mens tall XXX-L, this way it's sure to fit over my big down coat.
This is a fantastic list. If you are going to be hiking in the winter keep in mind layers are your best friend. We stay in an RV and then take day hikes from our "base camp". In Winter, the warm, moist air created by that perspiration migrates outward until it reaches temperatures at which liquid water condenses Dew Point.
That location can be on your outer garment and a sleeping bag is just another garment or even inside that garment. Thus, basic physics insures that an impermeable layer as the outermost layer assures liquid water inside your layers. While plastic as a first layer "vapor barrier" can create a warm swamp due to trapping perspiration keeping insulation dry , plastic on the outside is a bad - potentially dangerous - idea.
Anything put on top of your bag can end up damp due to this same process. Some use a sacrificial light polyester batting quilt over their bag s to keep the bag s dry.
Polyester batting loses insulative value as weight is placed on it, forcing out the trapped air. Most of this is great, but on e item is dangerous. That has been the cause of multiple bear attacks including a fatal one near Chattanooga TN recently. The most valuable is a liner and double bagging. Wrapping a fleece or jacket around your feet and tying the sleeves around your ankles is better than doing the same outside the bag I think.
One of the best little things I carry is a whisk brush. I use it to brush any snow off myself and gear before it goes in the tent, because, once the tent warms, the snow will melt and your clothes and gear will become wet. Also, I often spend nights in snow trenches or snow caves. For this reason, I do put my bag s and air mattress in a bivy sack on top of a closed cell pad. Perspiration does condense to form frost on the inside of the bivy but my bag stays dry. I have to turn the bivy sack inside out in the morning and the frost shakes off easily or I use the whisk brush.
I do use a bag to roll air into my mattress, not my breath. Yes, food inside, or near, the tent in bear country is a big no-no. I remember hearing about a young scout being killed inside his tent by a black bear in UT about 7 or 8 years ago.
That was in the summer. Bears do come out of hibernation in the winter if they are hungry though. In the Canadian Army we ran our white gas stoves inside our 6-person arctic tents for warmth and to cook, but I wouldn't recommend that in a nylon tent; that's a good way to destroy a couple thousand dollars worth of gear, and risk injury to self.
I'm a leader in a Belgian group of Scouts of Europe. These are all great tips you posted, learned a lot of new things. Also realised we used to make some mistakes burrowing in our sleeping bag for instance.
