As the snow packs in on the mountains surrounding Estes Park, recreationalists in Rocky Mountain National Park begin trading in their hiking boots for snowshoes and skis. Although this winter equipment gives people an advantage when traveling over snow, you can never be too prepared in the winter time. Among the additional risks during Colorado's cold weather months are avalanche and hypothermia.
