Event description

Description

Do you put away all your camping and backpacking equipment sometime in November, hunker down, and wait for April before you take it out again? If so, that this talk is for you!

Camping and backpacking in the fourth season – Winter – may not be for everyone, but it can be rewarding. With cold weather comes solitude and an experience of the outdoors that’s profoundly unlike the warmer seasons.

Join Michael Martin, author of AMC's best backpacking in the Mid-Atlantic : a guide to 30 of the best multi-day trips from New York to Virginiaand AMC's best day hikes in the Shenandoah Valley : four-season guide to 50 of the best trails from Harpers Ferry to Jefferson National Forest, to learn more about how to safely camp during the winter. He’ll discuss the skills needed and also bring a selection of gear for people to try out.

You may quickly discover that winter is your favorite season.
