Conquer the challenge of winter camping
A crash course on winter camping will be offered 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, at REI in Asheville.
With cold weather, snow and short days to contend with, winter camping requires some special skills and equipment compared with camping in the other three seasons. Taught by REI winter camping experts, this course will cover how to plan, how to stay warm, how to choose the right gear and what to expect when setting up camp and staying overnight.
