I have this fantasy of combining my 2 favorite activities but honestly have no idea if I can pull it off without significant risk. I love to hammock and I love to snowboard deep powder. My idea is to go to the mountains find a spot I can ride and set up a base camp. Typical temps will range between 8*F to about 30's at night. Wind chill could be significant and the snow fall can be up to several feet over night. Has anyone hammocked in conditions like this or am I crazy to even ponder this?
If you have braved these conditions how did you deal with the snow levels/amounts and the wind. In the middle of a big storm what was your biggest concern? What were your contingency plans if you experienced gear failure? Any words of wisdom or tips on how to prepare for this?
