@rdl: Thanks for the suggestions and the tip about the Heart Lake lean-to. We may wind up using it depending on the temps...

@chairrock: We will be sure to bring some overnight gear (eg sleeping bag, stove etc) in the car and extra food and survival gear in our packs. However, and perhaps this is a philosophical difference, I have never seen the need to bring all my overnight gear for winter day hikes (that seems to me to be the critical difference between backpacking and day hiking). Sure, some insurance is always a good idea, but there is a line between preparation and over-preparation. It seems that we just draw it differently.
