I have hit the snow running four times in the past year; learning it the hard way how to tread through the snow successfully. Some winter trekking hacks that I picked up from experience follow-

#1 Don’t wear your warmers while trekking. (Won’t be able to remove them and unnecessary sweating will take place)

#2 Don't let your body sweat while trekking, remove layers if necessary.( Sweating results in loss of body heat)

#3 Start layering two hours before sunset if you are not trekking at that time, specially your down jacket and warmers.( Heat will remain in your body)

#9 Use your shoes wisely, don't let the snow make their way on the inside; wet socks and shoes may result in frost bite.
