The Winter Tips series was officially launched with the release of an inspirational video fittingly called “Winter Camping Can Suck – Or it Can Be Epic.” Filmed over 2 days in -4 Fahrenheit temperatures in the beautiful Ottawa Valley, Canada, this piece combines breathtaking cinematography with easily accessible expert advice. Throughout, Eric explains his desire to inspire others to give winter camping a try.
