Backcountry ski trips already require a lot of gear, and that's before you throw in a bulky mountaineering tent in the mix. Lighten your load for your next overnight powder-seeking mission with the MSR Access 1 Tent: 1-Person 4-Season. This solo tent offers winter-worthy protection, but with a much lighter design that's more comparable to a backpacking tent. The unique central support frame optimizes interior space to fit all your gear while resisting snow loading, so the tent doesn't collapse when storms strike in the middle of the night. And since there's less stuff you have to deal with using frozen fingers, the unified frame is also easier to set up in cold conditions. Tough and lightweight Easton Syclone poles resist breaking, and the large vestibule keeps your boots and other gear safe from the snow without taking up all of the tent's livable space.
