Topic - Sleeping on Snow

alexm198 - on 10 Mar 2013
So I've got a quick question regarding people's sleeping systems on snow.

I'm forever seeing pics of manly men battling their way up brutal alpine routes or FAs in the Greater Ranges, and they all seem to have closed cell sleeping mats strapped to the outside of their packs. Is this to be used in conjunction with an inflatable for extra warmth, or on its own?

If on its own, is this just a weight saving thing, shaving off the grams in exchange for being a wee bit chilly?

What do you guys do sleeping in these conditions?
