Hemlock is too high up for most of my trips, I'll burn Lodgepole if there is enough, but usually go fireless. Most of my winter trips are close to home, leaving my house on foot/snowshoe. We have not had a good snow year for a few years now. Makes snow camping hard. When I used my snowmobile, I could get highter, farther, I could use it if in an area that had lots of Lodgepole to haul limbs back to camp. Laying thick, green limbs on the snow first would only help about an hour, then the fire would disappear into the snow. I think this is the poorest snow year since I've been in my place here and I've owned this property since '80.
