"The Ultimate Guide to Lightweight Winter Camping, Hiking, and Backpacking"

In 2014, Justin Lichter and Shawn Forry set out to be the first hikers to navigate the full length of the Pacific Crest Trail in the winter. Taking four and a half months, the two men walked, skied, and snowshoed for 2,650 miles from British Columbia to the US-Mexico Border. The two men are regarded as experts on lightweight human powered trekking, having set speed records on trails in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Justin and Shawn took their considerable trail experience and wrote this book, which serves as a guide for travelling in cold, snowy, and wet conditions while remaining as comfortable as possible. Learn about packing, equipment, logistics, and the ever-present wintertime travel task of getting and staying dry.

  • Written by Justin Lichter and Shawn Forry.
  • First published in 2017 by Falcon Guides.
  • Paperback, 288 pages.

Pretty good book, although it kind of glosses over just how difficult winter camping is, and just how on the edge ultralight travel in winter can put you. This book is no substitute for real experience, and I think most importantly fitness. But this book definitely has useful info for those inexperienced with winter camping and are looking to get out there without the prerequisite 50 pound backpack.
