Please post your snow-camping gear lists! on 01/31/2011 11:47:58 MST Print View

Hi all,

I'm looking to move from Sierra three-season backpacking into some snow-shoeing and snow-camping, and I'm looking for help in figuring out what I need to expand my UL setup into a fair-weather (i.e. not dumping snow) winter snowcamp setup. I have limited experience snow camping, so I'm looking to learn as much as I can from all you that know what you are doing!

So please post your wintertime, snowshoe/snowcamping lists...

Thanks!

Dave.
