This is worth a read...

http://matadornetwork.com/sports/snow-c ... in-alaska/

Matador Ambassador Drew Tabke shows a few tricks and techniques from his recent backcountry expedition in Alaska on how to set up a bomber camp in the snow.


"IN LATE APRIL I spent 11 days snow camping in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska with the ultimate goal of climbing and skiing some big peaks in the area. Though we’d never undertaken a trip like this an environment as extreme as what we encountered in Alaska, my partners — Chopo Diaz and Claudio Vicuña — and I all had extensive experience living in snowy environments elsewhere in the world.

Thanks to this experience, extensive planning, and the right gear, we had a comfortable and successful trip. Here are some photos and advice on living like royalty in the kingdom of the gods. "
