Discovery Channel’s Winter Survival Game
http://rodale.typepad.com/backpacker_gearcasts/ has a posted new educational videos on a number of topics: hoisting a pack, cleaning drinking bladders, using an outback oven, etc.
Backpacker magazine has just added a video component to their website where they give gear reviews, some skills information (including snowshoeing and snowshoe repair), interviews, trail tours, etc. I watched the gear review clips that complement their December issue gear review articles.
