Just because the weather isn't hot doesn't mean you're not depleting fluids. Breathing in cold air can be dehydrating. This can lead to exhaustion and put you in danger. Always bring along water and sip steadily throughout the day.
Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you won't break a sweat while being active. Damp clothes can lower body temperature, so dress in layers you can easily take on and off.
Never leave without telling someone where you're going and when you expect to be back. Provide your itinerary and don't forget to notify them once you get home safely.
Be cognizant of the avalanche potential in your area. Heed warnings and observe conditions. Avalanche dangers are higher during and right after snowfalls. Any slope greater than 30 degrees can have significant avalanche risks. Investing in an avalanche beacon is a good idea. This device sends out radio signals that can help authorities locate you while buried under snow.
