4 Safety Tips for Winter Camping

We love camping, and we know our customers love it, too. At Cyalume, we don’t believe a change in the weather should stop you from doing what you love. Fall and winter camping can be a thrill, but it’s imperative to your safety that you bring the correct equipment and make proper preparations beforehand.

  • Be Aware of Daylight | During winter months, you may notice a shortage of daylight hours. It’s important that you and your group return to camp before nightfall so you can find your way around your site.
  • Wear Correct Clothing | If you’re camping in the winter, you’ll want to ensure you’re properly clothed for the weather. You do not want to expose yourself to temperatures that can cause hypothermia if you don’t have to. To prevent hypothermia, stay dry, hydrated, and well fed.
  • Stay Hydrated | One of the most important things you can do to keep yourself safe is to stay hydrated. Drinking the correct amount of water does not just pertain to summer months as it’s necessary to keep hydrated in every weather situation as dehydration can cause dizziness, muscle cramps, and even confusion.
  • Be Aware of Elevation | When camping, it’s best to be aware of elevation as altitude sickness can occur. You’ll need to make sure your body can adjust if you decide to climb during your camping trip. If you find yourself suffering from dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath or a headache, you’ll want to begin to descend back to a lower elevation until your body can regulate itself.
