Mountain Hypothermia is potentially a dangerous problem faced by hill walkers at any time of year, although with more possibilities in these wintry months.
The Human Core consists of the Brain, Heart, Lungs and other vital organs. The Shell consists of the limbs, skin and muscle. Normal body core temperature is 37ºC
The body core temperature has to fall from its normal 37ºC by only 2ºC to cause
hypothermia problems. This temperature can continue to fall to a life threatening 28ºC.

Whilst its highly un common, I think every one should have a basic understanding of the causes, effects, treatments and most importantly, prevention of Mountain Hypothermia.
