This wasn't always part of their advice

In the bottom of an article in today's online ABQ Journal (a.k.a. The Albuquerque Journal) about snow play in the Sandia Mountains, ends with a ranger advising people cross-country skiing or snow shoeing from the Sandia Crest: "Also, bring a map and know how to use it, have a charged cell phone and take plenty of water." Back when I was living in Albuquerque, and involved with winter mountain sports a bit (mostly cross-country skiing), the emphasized part wasn't part of the recommendations for spending time in the woods.

Times have changed. And, I'll have to admit I've had a small part in it -- having worked in and around Cellular Telephony my entire career.
