Re: Planning a winter hot tent trip

"Maybe we should start spreading some "fake news" and tell the masses how terrible winter camping is"

Good news: Some of the lakes have started to freeze over.

Bad news: A combination of global warming and a boot coming untied did not work out so well for my hiking buddy:

Re: Planning a winter hot tent trip

Wow, great responses to my post, thanks to you folks for taking the time to answer. Many of your points echo what we are thinking, so will share these thoughts with my colleagues and think more about it. Short answer, don't hold your breath waiting to rent a hot tent and stove from AO. We did discuss the pre-setup tent idea at length, finding a suitable spot is not as simple as you might think. Also agree that if we do go for it, the stove would be a non-folding style for simplicity.

Re: Planning a winter hot tent trip

Hi all,

I was just looking over the interwebs, and saw that Lure of the North has a snowtrekker tent AND stove for rent at $85/night, and it seems like it's even possible to spend a night on their property.

If you haven't heard about LOTN, it's run by a very lovely couple who live year round on a backcountry lake close to Sudbury.

This is an amazing offer, as even spending a night in their place would be an amazing learning opportunity. In any case, here's the link.
