4. Be Efficient When You Set Up Camp
You don’t want to waste time looking for stuff when it’s freezing, so Larsen stresses the importance of organizing your gear into stuff sacks for efficiency. For easy storage, opt for Air Zippditty bags by Granite Gear.
After stomping down a level patch of snow and erecting a winter-grade tent with the door perpendicular to the wind, shovel snow up against the outer wall. As the snow recrystallizes, it’ll harden into an additional wind barrier.
Once camp is set up, Larsen’s first order of business is collecting snow and boiling it down for drinking and cooking water. Adding a layer of leftover water to the bottom of the pot facilitates this process.
