The folks at Survivalist Boards are discussing this right now:
I’m trying to find better ways of building fires in deep snow. I’ve tried packing HD Aluminum foil and building the fires on that, and it works but after a while it burns through and starts a slow descent through the snow. I’ve thought about carrying a vergo wood stove.
Anyone have any ideas?
Keep in my I mean deep snow… 10′ so digging to the ground is often not an option, neither is hiking long ways quickly.
What do you think?
