Looking to do my first winter night out both in tents and in snow hole this winter. Any advice? Do I use tent pegs still or will they pull out? Can you get Carbon Dioxide/Monoxide problems in a snow hole? Anything else?
In reply to paulpitcher: Really depends where you are, often you can scoop out a platform low enough that you can dig down and hammer pegs into the frozen turf which is bomber. If not objects burried in the snow like a T axe belay work incredibly well.
Poke a vent in the top of your snowhole and poke a ski pole through it to keep it clear, keep a candle going.
