When citizens set out to climb a mountain like the Rifleberg, they must prepare to encounter weather: banshee winds, gloom in thick blankets, snowfall down the napes of shivering necks, rime forming shapes off noses like whiskey bottles. That is why America's most jaded author entered the Brew in Bivy outfitting shoppe before leaving on his expedition to that peerless peak in 1875.

As the weather turns from warm and sunny in the summer to wet and cold in the fall and winter, there is a minor decrease of outdoor activity in the Adirondacks. Many people find these mountains enjoyable during any weather condition. Some even prefer fall and winter due to the lack of vicious black flies as well as the escape from the summer heat. The worst part of winter and fall occurs in wet conditions. When it is wet and cold, things get most unpleasant. To enjoy these mountains in any case, the correct clothing is vital.
