enthalpy Posted December 10, 2013 Share Posted December 10, 2013 I'm looking for ideas of places to do a night of snow camping from the Portland area either this weekend or the week after. About a month ago I hiked out from Timberline Lodge to Paradise Park in the first big storm of the season. Snowshoed back the next day in almost a foot of snow. At the time I was using a Marmot 3 season tent and a zero degree synthetic bag I've had for 20 years that's probably more like a 30 degree now! Recently I've gotten a lot of new gear including a Mountain Hardware EV2 4 season tent and a Marmot -20F Col MemBrain bag. I want to test this stuff out in some cold weather! I don't mind driving a few hours but I'd rather not have to go very far into the snow since I'll most likely be doing this solo. I'm from Pennsylvania but have been working in the area for a couple years so I'm somewhat familiar with the area but don't know what is accessible this time of year. Any ideas? Going stir crazy and need to get out. Plan to snowshoe around Crater Lake in a couple months with a few other people and I don't want to do that until I've worked out all the kinks of my new setup. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
