While we're waiting...

Here are a couple of good (and short) articles about getting ready for the backcountry:

I'd add that it's not a bad idea to go through your backcountry pack with a check list before the snow flies. That could help prevent an ugly last-minute scramble and forgetting crucial stuff when the first bc trip of the year comes up.

Dude's a skinning savant - I've learned a shitload about uphill travel from him.

Before his website - straightchuter.com - crashed it was a cornucopia of skinning tips and info.
