Hot Camping on the other hand suggests that your shelter does have some form of heating. This may be an open fire or an enclosed stove but it means that you have the opportunity to gain heat from a source external to yourself.
Both of these methods have advantages and disadvantages. A cold camper needs to be rigorous in maintaining the insulation qualities of their clothing and sleeping kit as there is less opportunity to dry things out if mistakes are made. They can generally travel lighter but there is much less margin for error.
A hot camper usually needs more equipment such as tents and stoves and that of course can be a challenge to transport but they can expect greater comfort in their shelter and the chance to dry kit out can be a life saver at times. Hot camping often suits a larger party as the transportation of kit can be divided between expedition members and once combined, one shelter and stove can be used by a number of people at the same time.
A pulk, sledge or toboggan is the normal requirement for a hot camper whereas a cold camper could possibly manage with just a pack if they preferred.
