My Locale Rocky Mtn. West
About Me An outdoors girl in Denver, CO. I have a love for skiing, snowshoeing and backpacking and want to venture into other mountain sports--backcountry skiing? I just took a winter camping course with the CMC last year. I have started to get back pain with a heavier load, so I want to lighten up and meet others in my area with the same mentality.

And I decided to pass on this one due to budget. I have plenty of snow and mountains right here to play in. Now if I could only find some UL packers who want to winter backpack in this area!

Questions

RAB Infinity
Is there a reason you are not considering the RAB Infinity? I adore mine and it is possible to get it at a discount if you wait it out (I got mine for $143 on Campsaver on a lucky day). And Pertex ...

Sniff a tree and kill cancer
