Winter may be the most stunning season here in Colorado, but it’s not without its dangers. Hiking in the Centennial State can be risky any time of year, but when you add winter weather, cold temperatures, and avalanche danger in the mountains to the equation, it can be deadly. If you plan to enjoy winter hiking in Colorado, it’s important to be prepared. Never go into the backcountry alone, and check avalanche forecasts before hitting any trails. Always carry the Ten Essentials, even if you’re just heading out for a day hike, and be sure to bring extra layers and a thermos of hot cocoa, coffee, or tea.
