I’m really excited about a trip I’m going to do in March, me and a friend are going for a backcountry skiing expedition. I’ve never done a winter trip to the mountain cabins but my friend has experience in winter expeditions so it will be a great learning experience as well. Going on a winter trip is so much more complicated than I imagined… you really have to be prepared for the worst which means that you have to carry a whole lot of safety equipment as well as plenty of extra clothing. So I’ve been on a shopping spree lately, because it turned out that I don’t have half the gear I will need. And then of course there’s the other thing I like, which is looking at maps and planning the routes… So much fun, long before the trip itself!
