Very Very nice report. It is something special about traveling on ice-snow with skis. So many people missing a great thing,but it sometimes harder do get setup doing that first trip and of doing winter camping and cold. What Month of the year and how did your boot-ski system work? That whole east end is some of the most beautiful area anywhere.
Looks like you had a great time and made very good time on your trip for a very good loop.
What makes this country special is our public land-its our Heritage. Once it's gone it's not coming back. Time to make a difference.
PineTree, it was the end of December last year. I have the X-Trace Universal bindings on those skis and I use Gore-Tex hiking boots with 6MM neoprene overboots which I am good in to -30F if I am moving. If the bottom drops out, or if I have to slow down or stand around I have another pair of insulated overboots that can go over the whole works. Yes, I love the East as well.
