Mashon told Orage that he and Bushfield's plan revolves a simple, innate desire to find the best snow and be able to head out to it at a moment's notice to get to it.

“Last year was an anomaly, both in terms of the quality snow and how low in elevation it came.” He continues. “Who knows? Maybe this year it won’t even turn on at that elevation. We will have to see.”

So far, his plan seems to be working. So head over to Orage.com to see how he and Bushfield are expanding their tent adventures, and then start Googling "how to build a teepee."
