Winter trekking is a website with lots of information on how to dress properly and be active in the winter while staying safe. They have lots of information on cross country skiing and snowshoeing as well as information on camping in the winter months. They have lots of information on how to stay safe like avoiding frostbite, hypothermia and what to do if something like that occurs. Also they have a forum section if you want to ask questions about anything related to being outdoors in the winter.
