Be proac­tive about melt­ing snow. Al­ways start with a lit­tle wa­ter in the pot to avoid an un­pleas­ant burned fla­vor. Don’t wait un­til peo­ple are out of wa­ter to start melt­ing snow.

Take ad­van­tage of any sun­light dur­ing the day to dry out damp sleep­ing bags and other gear.

Be­fore go­ing to sleep, fill up a wa­ter bot­tle (tightly closed) with warm wa­ter and place it in your sleep­ing bag. This will add a lit­tle warmth and en­sure there’s wa­ter, not ice, avail­able for the morn­ing.

Jam boot lin­ers and gloves in the bot­tom of your sleep­ing bag to in­crease the odds that they’ll be dry (and warm) come morn­ing.
