Avoid shelters that are dripping or letting in moisture. Step 2: Cover your body Cover all exposed areas of your body so that you don't experience hypothermia. Keep your head covered to prevent loss of body heat. Step 3: Cover your mouth Cover your mouth with a scarf so that you are not breathing cold air. Take shallow breaths so that you do not breathe cold air too deeply. Step 4: Avoid heavy exertion Avoid heavy exertion, which can cause you to sweat and experience chills. Step 5: Build a fire Build a fire and keep it burning. Melt some snow over the fire and drink the water when it is warm. With any luck, the storm will blow over soon, and you will be able to proceed on your way. Did You Know?
