Come hear CMC's own Gyorgy Kereszti take on temperature regulation in the cold weather. Learn about keeping warm and why it matters.  With winter upon us, how can we enjoy hiking and other outdoor pursuits.  Gyorgy will address the basics of how to lose, retain and gain in the cold environment. How to dress effectively, how to prepare and be comfortable outside, how to "winterize" the 10 Essentials.   

Gyorgy Kereszti has served as the Director of CMC's Winter Camping School for many years.  Gyorgy learned how to prepare and deal with cold/winter by spending countless days and nights out in the winter.
