Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Cold-Weather Attire

It's essential to bring the appropriate gear to ensure an enjoyable trip experience. Your clothing should allow you to comfortably remain outdoors for 2–4 hours at a time, whether moving, standing still in the sun, or under rain and snow. To prevent chilling and overheating during outdoor activities, we recommend wearing waterproof insulated snow boots or insulated hiking boots, warm, breathable base layers of varying weights, and a waterproof outer shell or layer. A light daypack with rain cover will allow you to store extra layers as well as carry gloves, hats, buffs, and other supplies while on our routes.

Winter Weather & Alpine Guides

Mountain conditions are unpredictable, particularly in winter. For safety when exploring the snowy terrain, regulations require us to hike and snowshoe accompanied by local alpine guides. Their technical expertise allows us to respond nimbly and safely to current conditions – plus they bring a wealth of knowledge about the culture, history, and landscape of the region. Because of these regulations, this trip has fewer opportunities to split off from the group for solo hiking when compared to a typical Backroads trip.
