It’s important to have a decent level of fitness before you set out, and to wear and carry appropriate clothing and equipment. Hiking requires basic skills—using the correct techniques will help you move more efficiently, and ensure that your trip is safe.

You should also have the right equipment and know how to use it. Wearing snow shoes or skis, and breathable, layered clothing, is essential. Using snow shoes and skis Snow shoes and skis are an effective way of traveling over snow. They work by spreading your body weight over a larger surface area, which enables you to walk on the surface of the snow rather than sink into it. Always set off cold, since you’ll warm up quickly, and add or remove layers as required. WARNING Walking over snow without snow shoes is dangerous—sinking into the snow will leave you exhausted and wet, which, in cold conditions, can quickly lead to hypothermia, particularly when you stop and are no longer generating heat.

FLOATING METHOD In a sheltered place, float the needle on the surface of some water—for example, a puddle or a small, non-magnetic container filled with water. Balance the needle on a small, dry leaf (or piece of paper, piece of bark, blade of grass, or inside a shortened straw). The needle will rotate, settle, and align itself. Leaf enables needle to float on water’s surface (c) 2011 Dorling Kindersley. All Rights Reserved. ON THE TRAIL | NAVIGATING WITHOUT A COMPASS The most effective way to magnetize a needle is to pass a small electrical current around it.
