Gear for lightweight snow camping

Newer Older

This is what I'm bringing with me on my snow camping trip this weekend. This is what it looks like fully packed.

The photo is missing some food, but otherwise complete. The heaviest stuff is the stove/fuel and the water.

    Looks like fun, reminds me of trying to pack everything up for my cross country motorcycle trip.
    too much stuff

    Nice. In a bizarre way, this makes me very much want to go snow camping next winter.

    I eat Cliff bars. Does this make me prepared?

  5. Ross 71 months ago | reply

    No tent, just the MSR E-Wing to cover the top of the snow trench.

    Wait a second! When did/is this happening? Where to?

    (No, I will not just turn and ask you at your desk.)

    @ Ross Harmes: thermarest?

  9. Cameron Moll 70 months ago | reply

    Cool stuff. I've got a lot of similar gear (Therm-a-rest too), minus the GPS and shovel...

    Looks like you've got it all covered. But wait a minute... where's your knife?!

  11. Ross 70 months ago | reply

    I put my knife in the "clothes" pile (things that I would be wearing directly on me, rather than put in my pack).

    Is that enough food for the weekend? Looks a bit light.

    I always say one of the best parts of going on a backpacking trip is the actual "preparation" of going on a backpacking trip. Lots of anticipation, good stuff.
