I was afraid you guys were going to say that.
The snow cave is scheduled for day two I think, so will have to spend the first night caveless.
Not sure what I am going to do now, all my gear is so much heavier in winter not to mention wearing the heavier boots and then adding the snow shoes on top of that....I may die of exhaustion after 10 miles (only halfway kidding)
Probably making more of it than it is, but it has my head spinning with thoughts about moisture management and all.
I mean skiing all day is one thing, but I come home to a warm house, and change clothes, never had to stay out in whatever I was wearing in whatever condition it was in.
Thought about just taking another bag and using it as a quilt over my bag, but jeezus that gets heavy when you include the heavier tent, the shovel, the ice axe, the extra bag, and all the extra clothes (heavier stove etc).
