Heading up Hotham we couldn’t believe two things. 1. We were allowed out to camp after having the Mont Dragonfly Tent during a month of corona lockdown restrictions and unable to try it. 2. That we made it up and over Hotham given how much snow there was... and low!
We set up during a snow lull and popped our Warmlite Boxfoot 750 sleeping bags inside. Off we went until dark with our Petzl Actik head lamps snowshoeing all the way to Dinner Plain and to explore our local surrounds.
A fire and dinner in the hut on return, we couldn’t stop smiling. We had snow camped once before... and froze... just not the right equipment back then unfortunately, but this time we were absolutely warm, tent handled the fresh snowfall and set up/pack up was a dream. Plus were were dry and no fly flapping!
Thanks for having the technology to supply “the best” equipment Mont. It was one of the best experiences and we cannot wait to stretch our legs and push ourselves a little further next trip!
