In winter, the 'onion rule' is even more important, in particular:

  • technical thermal underwear and technical socks
  • technical clothing: turtleneck shirt and sweatshirt, winter hardshell jacket with hood, technical winter trousers
  • avoid ski suits or ski trousers: they keep you too warm (and therefore you risk getting cold) and restrict movement
  • waterproof gloves
  • multi-purpose bandana (can be used as scarf and/or cap) + cap or headband
  • high hiking boots made of Gore-Tex® or other water-proof material

What equipment should you bring?

  • telescopic poles: help you move forward in the snow both up and downhill
  • crampons/ice cleats: useful on icy stretches, also frequent in the absence of snow
  • snowshoes and gaiters: essential if you plan to walk in fresh snow

What to pack in your backpack?

  • thermos flask with hot, sugary drink
  • light but energetic snack: muesli bars, chocolate or dried fruit
  • spare clothing: once the ascent is over, change clothing that is in contact with your skin
  • packed lunch, perhaps a Dolomite version: rye bread, speck and alpine cheese
  • spare gloves
  • footpath app or, even better, classic paper map: in cold weather, your smartphone battery runs out very quickly!
  • rubbish bag: collect everything, even tangerine peels!
