If you're looking for the best-case scenario for living off the grid during a snowy Colorado winter, look no further than the guy behind the 'Off-Grid Backcountry Adventures' YouTube channel.

This guy had a pretty sweet setup in the Colorado wilderness and was completely self-sufficient.

He lived in a cabin with a woodburning stove, chopped his own firewood with a chainsaw, and powered everything electronic that he had with solar panels, car batteries, and an inverter.

Not only that, he had an outdoor bathroom, shower, and even a sauna all built out of wood that resembled the cabin in which he lived.

While the temperature would easily reach below freezing and then some, with a little hard work and ingenuity, he had no problem keeping himself and his dog warm during the Colorado winter.
