A pack like Snowolfs is not necessary every time you ride. However, out here in PNW, a lot of BC is accessed through gates at the resorts. Also, the snowpack and the terrain out here in the PNW is quite a bit different than what you would get further east. Anyway, being prepared is never a bad thing, and if you like to ride with a pack, then I see no sense in not carrying everything you need to be safe and sound overnight, in the woods, during winter.
