  2. Another avalanche fatality at Baker

    I was in the area today. there were several avalanche tracks off Herman (and off the table, and off the cornices near artist point, etc... sketchy terrain this weekend). remembering tuesday's news and looking at these tracks was very sad. one additional factor - baker is open on fri-sat-sun only until the end of april. the rescue must have been additionally difficult because there were no mt baker personnel taht day to call upon. remember, there are two chairlifts nearby, as well as a first aid cabin.

  8. Exped Orion Extreme 4-season mountaineering 2-pers

    Thanks guys! alakso, that was the only tent by Exped that they had in store. The person manning the tent 'floor' of the store didn't know very much about the Exped tent, this is why I ask. and thank you, fishstick, for your endorsement of the Sirius - great to hear that it's holding up well. In particular, I hope to find someone on this board who has this tent and has used it for a while. My Google-fu is failing me, all I find are ebay links and other commercial links - but no reviews or comments from users. My one-person tent is the Hilleberg Akto, and I'm very happy with it. I noticed that some of the construction details in the Exped tent were similar to the Hilleberg's.
  9. does anyone here have this tent? During this week's Boxing Day sales, we were looking at this tent, and it appears rather impressive - roomy, relatively light, airy, not overly expensive either. I would like to hear your informed thoughts, opinions and experiences with this tent. It's not an overly popular tent (there is only one store in Vancouver that sells it - that I know of) but the specs certainly appear impressive. Thank you - CWall
