I started doing this here in Nh where i guess its as cold as in CO??Anyway there's tons of snow on the ground and plenty of water, at least for mid December.

I started using the Yak Trax cleat devices on my booties for walking to and from the river and this makes a huge difference over the snow and ice dragging a heavy boat.I also gear up from home putting everything on including gloves and hoodie, except pfd and helmet. I drive down with my spray deck on my body as I find getting this on at the river is really punishing sometimes. I realize many of you probably do all this but I thought I would just throw it out there, one winter boater to another.

Wear ear protection. The right ice formations making for excellent splats, the wrong ones are scary undercuts; know the difference. Snow over the banks can make for some unique seal launch opportunities, take them. Paddling hard with the right amount of layers feels better than barely paddling with a ton of layers.
