As with skiing, happy feet means a happy person at the end of the day. The boots that you choose could make or break your experience. Choose a waterproof boot with some insulation to keep your feet warm and dry
Layers, Layers and more Layers!
With the dry, arid climate that we have, and the rapid weather changes that can occur, you should be prepared for any sort of temperature or weather change. Wear several layers made of fabric that can breathe and quickly dries. Cotton clothing is not a good idea. It is also smart to pack extra socks, gloves and a spare hat to cover all of your bases while you are hiking the amazing trails Breckenridge has to offer.
Plenty of Food and Water
Always make sure to pack yourself plenty of food and water for your journey to stay well hydrated and maintain your energy. It is very important while you are out on the trails in the winter hiking at 9,600 feet in elevation.
Optional: Yaktrak or Microspikes
Surprising enough the trails do see a lot of traction, making some of them hard-packed and slick. Traction on your boots makes your winter hiking experience a lot safer and more enjoyable.
