Today's "Snow Bomb" in Colorado came on the heels of mid 60's weather. When out elk hunting I try to stay up on the weather, but sometimes do not due to lack of cell signal and not messing around with radios. The sudden and seriousness of the storm today has me wondering how well I would fare in such a condition. I think I might make it if caught out in it over night, but 80 mile an hour winds and blowing 20" of snow is not to be taken lightly. I typically camp next to my jeep in a tent off of 4x4 trails and then hike into the mountains to the areas I like that are usually about 4 miles one way, then hike out at night. It makes for a long day and I try to travel light, yet prepared. I almost exclusively wear wool layers and take a waterproof shell jacket. I think taking googles, waterproof pants, full glove in addition to the fingerless wool gloves I normally wear, and a balaclava would make a big difference without adding too much bulk and weight. Has anyone on here been caught out on foot in such conditions? How did you do? What gear was a saving grace.
