and you are right roy you have to get a nother endorsement to fly a float plane.
10 days in snow? Where are you gonna feed and water the horses? a couple of horses that don't have grass to feed on or water to access will take up ALL of your available packing room in the feed they will need alone. NExt question is where you'd put them all day and then all night.
How much snow are you talking? I lived in Wyo for 10 years at 6000 ft and hunted/guided up and through 10,000 ft. and there was never enough snow during the deer season to warrant snow shoes.
You are better off paying someone to drop camp you. Just by the sounds of it.
